The following are categories of regulating activities. First, we described the TYPE OF ACTIVITY, what it does for the brain and why it’s helpful. Then we have listed ideas to try at home.
Remember: the idea is not to pressure yourself or your children with doing all of these every day, but to sprinkle them in. Incorporate them in at your own pace, with the goal of doing SOME regulating activity every couple of hours as you move through your day.
The idea is to integrate a variety of Regulating Activities in dose responses (5-15 minute spurts) throughout the day.
These activities are great for everyone – even adults!
