Have your child do wall push-ups to help her calm down. This is a way to get proprioceptive input. You can also tell her to “hold up the wall” as a way to get her to push against the wall for more proprioception.
This is the #1 tip because it is an easy way to get your child moving using her muscles against resistance. This will help your child get regulated, whether she is over-excited or lacking alertness. Things like climbing steps, carrying groceries, or playing with a weighted ball are all good ways to help your child get proprioceptive input. OT’s call it Heavy Work. Think “Wax on, wax off…” Give your child breaks in his day to stop and move – it only takes a few minutes to have an impact.
