For a quick energy shift–help your child to shake out their stress. Tell them that we are going to shake, shake, shake our bodies until all the tense energy is released into the space around us. Begin by simply allowing the body to shake in whatever way it feels comfortable. Let go everywhere. Pay attention to the energy moving through your body. Remember there is nothing to “do”–just relax and allow it to happen. The perfect amount of energy will be released. After you are done shaking, stop for a moment and check in with your body. Simply pay attention to the sensations and how you feel.
