Do you ever feel anxious or angry in a situation where you can’t leave your chair? You’re in a meeting and you’ve just had enough! Well, you are sitting on the best tool ever—your chair! Chair push-ups and chair pull-ups are a great way to expend energy and help yourself or your child self-regulate. Chair pull-ups can be done without anyone even being aware.

Try this the next time you’re in a frustrating or tense situation. And soon others will be asking how you’re staying so calm.
