2. Fidget Spinner

Fidgeting is the act of moving about restlessly, often as a result of nervousness, impatience, or boredom. ADHD experts have suggested that fidgeting is associated with the level of stimulation we receive. If something is not able to hold our attention, fidgeting increases attentiveness by distracting the part of the brain that is ‘bored’ in order to allow the other parts to focus. Fidgeting is also a natural response that helps manage high levels of stress.

Fidget spinners are marketed as a way to help relieve stress and cope with anxiety and ADHD.
