Why We Have Built Take-Pause?

Hi, 

I am Dumeetha Luthra, the founder of Take-Pause, and a former BBC frontline journalist. I worked in Afghanistan and Iraq among other places. My experiences inspired me to build Take-Pause, a stress reduction system for kids and adults. 

Stress is everywhere, not just in war zones, and if we can learn to deal with it, we can better cope with life. If we can give kids that skill, it will stay with them throughout their lives. So, kids will have the power to respond, not react. 

The Dalai Lama said “If every 8 year old in the world was taught meditation, we would eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”

I believe that. I believe learning how to practice calm breathing skills is the first step. 

Practicing how to Take-Pause in high stress moments

All my best,
