      i like this pop pop sound i can make with my lips, tongue-clicking, eh-eh-eh, rocking, feet wiggling (evolved from suppressing rocking and hand flapping), dancing, pacing, and humming

      The arm flaps, jumping, shaking my hands, rocking, and if my gf is with me I have her apply deep pressure (usually just hold me and not let me move)

      Flapping my arms, scratching if I am overstimulated, and just not sitting still.

      Singing, copying sounds, and floppy hands

    • UVRose

      769d

      Tapping, rocking back and forth, and the classic flappy hands

    • WhiteBBQ

      771d

      Cracking my knuckles and rubbing a straw with my fingers

      Favorites are drumming with my teeth & feet, humming, & putting my hands over my face & rubbing my eyes. Weirdest, socially, would be walking repetitively in patterns on tiled floors, climbing things, scratching my arm with my teeth, & very quickly/repetitively plugging & unplugging my ears. (The last one was awesome for escaping into my own little world in k-12 school)

      I like to pace, or tap on people or my hands.

      Claw hands

      I like jumping, listening to music, rubbing my hands together, flapping my hands, walking on my toes, and I also have one where I hold my hands out and wiggle my fingers. Not sure how to describe that one exactly but it's really fun!!

      I like chewing on things, and I have a lot of visual stims. My brain really likes squares so pixel art is a big one. I also do the classic happy flappy hands (which is even better with sweater paws)

      Hand flapping. OG for a reason

    • Cleigh

      779d

      Toe bounces!!! Tounge clicking, perching in high and dangerous places while toe bouncing

    • Overcomer

      779d

      Pen or pencil spin, tapping and music. Plus a dark room while sitting on floor

    • queer.101

      779d

      Rocking and flapping my hands, also music🤗

    • ISFP

      779d

      Music (if that counts), flapping my sleeves, twirling my hair, bouncing my leg.

      • Hoppie

        779d

        @ISFP I love love love listening to music :) I flap my sleeves too !!

          @Hoppie yes, I listen to music of repeat alot

    • Joseph_Whigham

      I don’t know really… oooo never mind I know clicking my fingers together. My index and thumb I click them together. Playing with fabric on my clothes by rubbing my finger/ pulling the thread up with my finger nail.

    • WhiteSheepGal

      780d

      Cracking my toes and rubbing my feet together is a big one for me

      • Hoppie

        779d

        @WhiteSheepGal I do this too, I never realized it until now lol

    • RainbowKai

      781d

      Rocking, humming, pacing, and pointing my finger and making circles

      • Hoppie

        779d

        @RainbowKai I love rocking and humming, especially at the same time!

    • Emrys.the.warrior

      Spinninggggg

      • Hoppie

        779d

        @Emrys.the.warrior yes it's so fun :D

      I pace in circles or pace in a line for hours every day. It is my most common stimming behavior along with wringing my hands together. When I am stressed or agitated I tend to rock and yank on my hair, and during meltdowns I tend to beat my face up with my fists

    • ZaneJohnson

      781d

      I jump up and down while shaking my hands and it’s really funny

    • Strawberrybee

      781d

      I have a worm toy that I fling around and hit on tables , or rubbing my hands together lol

    • AnimalBoy

      781d

      Chewing or wiggling usually but I like playing with and watching slimes!

    • Snowy

      781d

      Kinda specific, but silky tassles. The way they feel on my skin is the absolute best feeling in the world

    • flower_goddess

      781d

      cracking my body and rubbing my legs

      • Hoppie

        781d

        @flower_goddess these both sound nice!

    • andromedagalaxy

      782d

      Rubbing my hands and feet on something rough-ish, like a shag carpet or a spiky toy, helps me so much

      • Hoppie

        781d

        @andromedagalaxy oo I like doing this too, or rubbing my legs in my blankets when I'm in bed!
