An Autistic Stimming – Why ANYTHING Can be a Stim Tool

Do you pick up random objects and stim with them? Just anything and everything? I do. Let me know in the comments below what are you favourite household objects to stim with?

Continuing in my stimming series, stimming with regular, everyday objects. Because, before I was diagnosed autistic, I didn’t have stim tools or “stim toys.” I mostly would just pick up things and naturally stim with them.

So, this is a phone cord that I have made into a loop. Look! A primitive fidget spinner! Or like, if I would have a necklace, I might do something like this with the jewelry, just very naturally.

I do a lot of things with my hands. Jewelry – anything with jewelry. Just, anything I naturally find around me, my hands will just pick up and automatically turn into a stim because I’m just naturally always in motion, unless I’m fighting myself to stop. Everything … anything … can be a stim toy. Seriously.

Let me know. Do you pick up random objects and stim with them? Just anything and everything? I do. Let me know in the comments below what are you favourite household objects to stim with?

I’ll talk to you guys next week. Bye!

  1. probable ND here, I’ll run my hands over a zipper, play with or drop a chain necklace onto a palm or one very hidden one I found i like a lot (for it’s undetectable’ness) is to feel the smoothness of a particular tooth with my tongue or a fingernail with another finger. I don’t know if leg bouncing ‘counts’ but I used to do that on and off for a while, well into my twenties though that one mostly dropped away at some point.
