Having known the de-stressing properties of fidget spinners, let’s understand it and make sure that it’s helpful and perhaps not a distraction.

Now let’s take a look at what a fidget spinner actually is and the science behind what they accomplish for a person using one. There is a central bearing that you grip with your index finger as well as with your thumb and there is a three-pronged blade that rotates.

Although depending on the model the styles of the blades as well as the material may vary and once you initiate the spin they can spin for minutes at a time. Initially, fidget spinners were designed as devices for anxiety and they were manufactured for children to fight ADHD and autism. The sensation that comes from holding a fast spinning object as you tilt it back and forth and actually feel the various spinning forces moving your hand, it can be very calming indeed.

According to science, fidget spinners can be very efficient when you do combine it with other forms of treatment but fidget spinners alone do not cure anxiety and currently there is no research that shows that. However, there are several reasons as to why fidgeting can actually be beneficial. Did you know that your body movements are actually part of your thinking and expression process? Fidgeting can actually help you think and express yourself.

When you are fidgeting with an object, that also helps to create an emotional attachment to that object and that to some degree can serve as a replacement for having a real human available. Not saying that an inanimate object can replace the connection that human beings can have, I’m just sharing the fact that objects like fidget spinners can be an outlet for the need of human interaction.Apart from the sensation that you feel spinning it the other massive appeal with fidget spinners specifically is the variety of tricks that you can perform. So there’s also the sense of a new challenge and mastering a new skill that comes along with it.
