Fidgeting

Everyone does it - we all reposition our bodies, tap a foot aimlessly, click a pen repeatedly, or flip a pencil to stay focused. Fidgeting behaviors take different forms but they can all be characterized as repetitive motor movements to sustain attention, relieve discomfort, decrease stress or feelings of anxiety, or fend off boredom.

When your mind wanders, so does your ability to pay attention to what you’re supposed to be focusing on.
