Mindfulness is teaching your student how to breath properly. If they learn how to do this, it will help calm them down whenever they are afraid, angry, or sad. If students learn how to use mindfulness techniques, it will help them to better self-manage their emotions. 
Most lower elementary classes have seen this video before, so they should remember it, and know what to do, but it needs to be practiced when they feel overwhelmed, or they will forget about it.
