What are your stims?

my stims are:

Singing/ humming

Leg bouncing (idk if that’s my anxiety or not)

Hitting my chest

Picking at my scalp



Repeating whatever word I heard recently

Bopping like bop cat

*bop* *click* *bop* *click*

flappy hands

using fidget toys

chewing on things

typing on a laptop or computer

maladaptive daydreaming (this is kinda bad for me because i get my daydreams confused with reality at times)

Violently shaking when I’m upset or sad

Listening to the same song over and over

making the hand where u pu down ur index, middle, and ring finger and i shake it super violently

That’s all of mine! I wanna hear yours

Cracking my joints

Chewing on something

Rubbing my fingers together

Flicking the air

Punching my hip (not in a harmful way just banging against it)

Clanging my wrists together

Scrunching and unscrunching my fingers

Jumping like a ton

Repeating literally any phrase

Leg Bouncing

Fidgeting with anything and everything around me

rlly happy stims for me r just general limb/body bouncing and humming!!!!! especially in lil intervals so its like a hum then nothin then hum!!!! shaking my arms/hands a lot!!! tho they do go numb sometimes,, lol. normal happy ones r arm/hand shaking but toned down, leg bouncing, and rocking side to side or back nd forth!!!!

slight harm warning for these but n e ways. bad stims/ones i do when upset r rocking back nd forth but a lot more rapidly, leg bouncing but again more rapidly, hitting my arms/wrists together, and banging my head on something,,, last two arent very nice and i try not to a lot
