Why We Fidget & Why it Helps

Is this you? Tapping your fingers. Bouncing a leg. Playing with a pen, keys and rings.
Until someone shouts “Stop! You don’t realize how irritating that can be! “
You probably didn’t know we were doing it. You stop. You’ll be silent for a few seconds. Then tap-tap-tap…
Why do we fidget? Do we need to be concerned? Is it a problem? Could it be a solution?

Although others may find your fidgeting distracting it can actually help you manage your agitation and increase your ability to concentrate and think.
