Why do we fidget?

The 4-1-1 on the Need to Move

Why do we fidget? Why do some impulsively fidget more than others? Simply put, fidgeting is the body’s natural response to boredom, apprehension, anxiety, restlessness, frustration, ADHD, confusion, the inability to concentrate, or a combination of any of the aforementioned. Conventional wisdom deemed fidgeting a negative behavioral disorder that needed to be quelled under all circumstances.

Today, advanced psychological research suggests fidgeting is the body’s way of expelling excess energy, giving the brain something to “focus on,” resulting in lower levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Depending on whether we need to soothe or stimulate ourselves, fidgeting is the body simply self-regulating to help either increase or decrease attention levels.
