Fidgeting - Why Do We Do It?

Fidgeting - Why Do We Do It?

Every person is familiar with the remark “Stop fidgeting” but does anybody ever wonder why do humans fidget? Is there any scientific reason for such an action? This article shall inform the reader about the underlying cause for what is known as fidgeting.

Fidgeting and its underlying cause

  • Scientific research has revealed that fidgeting has many benefits still most people get annoyed when they see another person twitching and tapping. Most people do this seemingly without any control over their movement when they are ordered to be still. Research shows that there is at least one biological reason to back this action.
  • Since the same brain area is used for movement and speech, it is only natural that gestures are interlinked with thorough preparation for a speech. People tend to move their hands more when they are looking for a word to say but are not being able to find it. In a recent study, it was found that school children between the ages of 6-8 years who use their hands a lot can come up with the right answers during lessons.
  • While this is one theory, another neurological theory suggests that a portion of the mental load is offloaded through the process of fidgeting when people have to tackle complex problems or thoughts. The theory is called cognitive load hypothesis. The offloading mechanism frees up the mental faculties thus devoting them to the mental process. While this may not be a definitive explanation for fidgeting, it does go to show that there is a link between a person’s hand movements and their thought and speech process.

Other reasons for fidgeting

  • Other than the cognitive advantages, some evidence has also been found linking fidgeting with metabolism. People who fidget are found to have a higher metabolism and lower BMI. This difference can be seen between thin and overweight people. Fidgeting amidst lollygagging during the day helps burn up to 350 calories a day. Also, fidgeting among other incidental physical activity helps keep an individual fit.
  • Among other reasons, fidgeting also serves as a coping mechanism for people with ADD. If a person is engaged in something that he/she is not interested in then the additional sensory-motor input that is even slightly stimulating or entertaining helps the brain to get completely engaged. This helps to maintain focus on the actual activity being performed by the individual.
  • So, fidgeting helps distract that part of the brain that is getting bored. This helps the other parts of the brain focus better on the actual activity. This is known as floating attention which perhaps is an evolutionary trait that dates back to prehistoric times. In those times, the ability to focus entirely on a task with undivided attention was not favorable to the human since doing so could make them unaware of the enormous ravenous beast hiding behind the bushes.

Thus, though there is some degree of understanding is there when it comes to fidgeting, more research studies are required to gain further insight. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

My son recently had an episode of Psychosis which was initiated by substance use. He is 20 years old. Doctor has prescribed Rosptril Plus 2 and Oliramp2. 5 mg at night. Is the prescription all right? And do we have to give him these different medicines or it can be managed by one drug only? He is much better now but but has become slow in his actions, is it the effect of these drugs? For how much time do I have give these drugs? I have read that these drugs are habit forming and once withdrawn they can cause much damage, is it true?

Hi. Looking at symptoms. He may have substance induced psychosis. Which was maintained on medications .it is true risperidone nd olanzapine are 2 drugs of damw class. But they are required to prevent relapse of disease. Nd slownwss may be part of psychosis. Which are called as negative symptoms. I can give oliramp 5 mg ar night single dose one drug. Which need to be continued. Antipsychotics are not habit forming. Sleeping pills may have that potential. So I recommend olirsmp 5 mg. Thannk you.

I mean could it be smaller (in length and in girth) in more of stress then in less of a stress (same for cold or both or the other factors I sad; together or alone. I will be very happy if you would answer. I just need a specific answer from a urologist. The other questions ı asked didn't answer this question. Thank you.

Hi. I am psychiatrist practicing sexology. As per my knowledge is concerned. Length of flaccid Penis does not matter. It varies with time to time .nd situations. Unless it is not less than 3 cm when erected .it is said to normal Penis by enlarge otherwise it is called as micropenis. So unless if it is not micropenis. U need not to worry. Temperature stress exertion excitement affect erection of Penis rather than length of flaccid Penis. Thank u.

L citrulline is amino acid. So. U can take it along with it only if needed. But ideally. Pre workout with such amino acid need to be avoided. Already you are on rexipra nd mirtaz.

Hi, I am currently taking the following tablets for OCD, depression and anxiety: Flovovamine 100 mg - 1 tablet morning Betacap tr 40 - 1 tablet morning Buperon XL 150 MG - 1 tablet morning Lonazep 2 mg - 1 tablet night I do not have any OCD, anxiety or depression symptoms but I feel like my muscle is stiff in the leg and I feel like shaking my leg always to the extent it pains. I have this prob for more than a month. I had a similar issue earlier sometime before. Could you pls suggest if I can take Ecitane (Trihexyphenidyl) 2 mg - 1 tablet in the morning and 1 tablet in the night along with the above tablets to reduce muscle stiffness and excessive shaking of leg? Note: I am under regular medication since 2011.

I think. As you r on medication since 2011 for ocd wid relieving symptoms. Symptoms you mentioned might be part of restless leg syndrome. Which can be because of medications ,anxiety. And other causes. Usually benzodiazepine like clonazepam is used which you r already taking. Yes in addition to this you can try trihexyphendyl or levodopa carbamamazapine. For your symptoms. U can also avoid caffeine. Maintain sleep hygiene. Leg massage can also help.
