FIDGETS? WHAT ARE THEY? WHY DO WE NEED THEM? HOW TO USE THEM?
You must be wondering what is it this new tendency of having a fidget or a stress relief toy.
So, I want to share with you some information about it and clear this up for you.
First of all, WHAT IS FIDGETING?
It is the act of moving about restlessly. It is a state when person feels nervous, bored or combination of both. The fidgeting can involve playing with one’s hair, fingers, or clothes. Fidgeting is a kind of bad habit.
Fortunately, there is a cure for that. Today we have a lot of different devices which help us to fight the bad habits. They are called FIDGETS, STRESS RELIEF TOYS or even FIDDLE TOYS. There are an enormous variety of them nowadays.
Next question you will ask me:
“WHY DO WE NEED THEM OR WHO NEEDS THESE TOYS?”
I will help you to understand it with a great pleasure. As the studies show, people who go through every day stress need to relief their stress in order to concentrate better on their work. Also fidget toy helps to concentrate a lot of kids at school. The research confirms the real importance of movement while learning. There is a great enhance of learning when fidgets are introduced. One case study, conducted in the United States in a sixth grade classroom, the positive effects were observed. The students showed growth in scholastic achievement when the stress relief balls were implemented. The average writing score increased from 74% without fidgets to 83% with use of stress balls. In addition, the students with ADHD showed a big progress with increase of 27% on the writing sample (Stalvey&Brassel, 2006).
Fidget toys are specifically meant to help children, students and adults with Autism or all types of ADHD, but also it has been shown to help all kinds of people. By playing with the fidget toy, the user can pay more attention to what is being taught, the worker can concentrate his attention on the work that need to be done. When you fidget, it can help to block distractions and increase your productivity. And above all of that it is just a great and simple toy to play with.
HOW TO USE THEM AND WHERE?
Every kind of fidget has its purpose. Before you buy any of them you need to pay attention on the instructions and direction how to use it. Make a little investigation how to use your fidget toy.
The best thing I like about fidgets is that I can use them everywhere. When I go to work by bus, when I work in the office, children use it at school, at home while doing your homework or even watching TV.
Decide for yourself, but as for me this fidgeting is quite useful thing. I’m using it for a couple weeks right now and it is really relaxing when you fidget after long day.
