Cookie Monster: “Me practice mindfulness!”

cookie monsterWell, Cookie Monster doesn’t quite say that, but he comes close. In this Sesame Street video promoting self-control (which psychologists call “executive function” these days) he says:

When me lose control, when me have no doubt
Me have strategies, that can calm me down
Me can talk to self, me can stand up straight
Me can take deep breath, me can self-regulate!

Me need control me self, yeah that’s the way to live
And then me functioning, like an executive.

You can view the video on YouTube if you can’t see it above.
