I always play in my locks, rub my hands when I'm nervous, and shadowbox

Oh I also tend to walk in circles in my room for some reason.

There's loads of great information and conversation about stimming here, it's taught me a LOT.

 

Also, I apologise for the swearword in the title of the blog, but that's just what it's called :/ The link should take you straight to the blog, though. If it's not working, just let me know.

I have a weird, new one that I have only just recently noticed, that is rolling my tongue into like a tube shape then breathing out for a long time. I seem to do it in excitement.

 

I have also recently noticed that whenever I feel awkward, or I don't know how to react to something I'm looking at even online, I start coughing involuntary.  I don't know if that counts as 'stimming'.

i have quite a few, and I'm usually doing one or the other...

 

Stress/anxiety; I fiddle with my hair (I like the texture) I rock, and have a rocking chair for my computer, bounce my leg, rub my face, biting inner cheek, picking at skin on lips.

Excited/over stimulated: i flap my hands, get up and run from one end of the room to the other... basically I can't keep still and focus.

 

I also make animal noises, but don't know what category they come in... I think excited, I don't do them when I'm stressed.

Hmm, don't think I have any, then. Odd!

Not everyone has them, I guess. There are some I could do without, such as picking at the skin on my lip, if you could call that a stim.

Did you do any when you were younger, for example?

Good point - they can come and go.
