Are you a fidgeter? It’s not just children who fidget, many adults continue to fidget too. There are reasons behind this and even benefits to be found from fidgeting. Thankfully nowadays there are also lots more tools available to help with restlessness, such as fidget spinner rings. Read on to find out more about fidgeting and five of my favourite fidget spinner rings:
Why do People Fidget?
There are many reasons why people fidget. Sometimes, it’s because we’re bored. We lead busy lives and when we suddenly find ourselves having to stop and stay still and wait for a moment it can be a shock to the system. We find ourselves fidgeting perhaps even unknowingly. I often don’t realise I’m moving constantly until someone points it out to me.
However, being bored is not the only reason people fiddle. Fiddling can also be a mechanism to help keep you concentrating during busy periods and it can be a calming solution when someone is feeling anxious.
The Benefits of Fidgeting
Rather than being an annoying habit, fidgeting is actually a great coping mechanism. It helps the brain, whether it’s in boredom mode or overstimulation, by re-engaging parts of the brain in movement so the rest of the brain is free to focus. Studies show that this involuntary movement can help us to cope with stress, manage BMI, and help with maintaining attention.
People fidget in different ways. A few of my everyday fidgets are constantly moving my feet. Sometimes I tap repeatedly, other times I circle each foot round and round (usually while unconsciously counting in my head). I also move my hands a lot. If I’m wearing a ring, I will rotate the ring round and round my finger. When I wear wire rings, I find myself misshaping them by constantly squashing them one way and then the other. I like to have something in my hands- a pen to write (which I’ll find myself clicking on and off repeatedly), a book to read, a phone to play on or needles to knit or sew.
When I was teaching I found homemade play dough (especially when it was still warm) was very relaxing to play with and helped pupils to concentrate during lessons. Equally, scrap paper and colours for doodling and colour-in were very successful too. Nowadays there are also lots of fidget resources available to buy whether people like to pop, spin, twist, pull, stretch or roll to relieve boredom, anxiety, and stress.
Fidget Rings for Women
I have recently discovered fidget rings. These are great as they look just like stylish rings, but are in fact discreet sensory tools. Fidget rings (sometimes known as “anxiety rings” can be used to rotate the ring around the finger, tap the ring on a table, roll the ring on the palm of the hand, or just take the ring off and put it back on. They also have extra features for ultimate fiddling (as you’ll see in the rings below). It’s a good idea to buy rings designed for fiddling, rather than to break or misshape rings as I have unintentionally over the years. Fidget rings provide a physical outlet for nervous or excess energy, which can be used to keep hands busy or simply provide a focal point for the mind to focus on. Fidget rings can help with the symptoms of ADHD, autism, and anxiety. Take a look and choose your favourite fidget spinners ring.
