Beating hyperactivity at Easter time

There has been a link chocolate consumption and hyperactivity in children, but it has not been established. However, we all know that excess sugar consumption can bring on spurts of hyperactivity.  It is near on impossible to prevent children from enjoy the treats left from the Easter bunny, so here are some simple exercises you might like to try to help calm children down after the sugar rush.

 

Peace Breaths - Take in a deep breath and as you breathe in, feel as if you are breathing in peace. Feel your whole body filling up with this wonderful feeling of peace. Now, breathe out and send this feeling of peace into the room. Repeat this exercise 2 or 3 times.  

(Try this with love, gentleness, happiness, etc)

 

Balloon Exercises - Imagine you are blowing up a balloon. Take in a deep breath, and steadily and slowly blow up your huge balloon. See the balloon getting bigger and bigger and bigger. Now close your eyes and imagine the balloon floating into the air. As you stand there, feel yourself becoming very quiet and peaceful. Repeat this exercise 2 or 3 times. (Blow up the balloon, fill it with cross thoughts, put it on the floor and stamp on it.)
