We live in a society where sometimes you have to tell kids to stop fidgeting. Right or wrong it is the way our society works, and it makes sense for basic functioning in public places, but it may not be good for the body. Figdeting is natural. The body likes to move. So the next time you tell a child to stop fidgeting wait for a minute. If you are alone in a car or in your own home and it’s not bothering anyone can you let them fidget a little while longer?

Our bodies would want to be in motion all day long and then sleep if they had their choice. The muscles want to move. We inhibit that often.

And if you are sitting in an office right now, feeling antsy and it won’t bother anyone maybe you can let yourself fidget a little. Its okay and it will make your body happy.
