For Christmas I was given an Amazon voucher as a present. I then totally forgot about this and then remembered in mid January I had this voucher and thought about some different ways I could spend it…
I find it hard to not fidget or get distracted by things. I find it hard not to get distracted from even the most simplest things like other people’s conversations, loud noises or music.
On top of these I find different environments and new places can send me into overdrive – so something as simple as a toy to fidget with in my pocket can be super helpful.
I remembered once having an awesome toy called a Tangle. Essentially it’s a plastic loop which can be fiddled with and worked in different ways to make different shapes. I like to wrap and unwrap mine around my fingers in my pocket. They can be used by one or both hands easily so ideal for using discreetly in a pocket or under a table.
So that was some of my voucher spent! I then had another think about something else I could use to distract myself or just use in a creative way to relax. Recently on social media I had seen lots of videos going round featuring amazing creations made from little magnetic balls. See this video below if you aren’t sure what I am talking about:
The idea is that these magnetic balls provide a creative outlet which is stress relieving and actually quite relaxing! You can be super creative with them or just create patterns and shapes with them – ideal for using on a tabletop or at the end of the day to calm down a busy brain.
Let me know of any other fidget toys you know of or that have helped you!
