Results of a study on fidgeting
Hehe, I am a fidget Meister at times.....it is a nervous thing when in company. For me ...the answer has been to take my knitting or crochet...socially acceptable things I can occupy my hands. Folk are understanding, I would dearly love to take my knitting to church, but life as we know it would end....I am certain the Lord would be okay with it, but it would scandalise my neighbours
There is one lady in my church that does this very thing!:laugh: No body seems to care.
I get around it in church with the good old rosary beads!
I can't sit still. When I come home, I pick up things around the house and need to be occupied while watching T.V. My wife loves this because folding laundry is the perfect task for someone like me when we are watching T.V. together.
Not as much as I used to, but still, I fidget.
Fidgeting with yarn and knitting needles......hey presto! A teapot cosy!
In Northern Wisconsin, many would wear that on their head.
I suppose I do fidget at times, but I don't remember my fidgeting ever bothering anyone that may be near by me when I'm doing it.
OTOH, I know people who practically drive me insane (Yeah, I know....I'd have to put it in reverse to get back to insane! :smilewinkgrin with their almost constant jingling of either their pocket change or their keys (or both) when I'm trying to listen to the sermon that's being preached.
They're probably not even aware that they're doing it, but WPE3BQL certainly is quite aware of it!
And it's not just the people in the pews that are guilty of saying things that to me are just a means of "mentally fidgeting."
Case in point is the pastor of FBC in Atlanta. Yep, old Charley Stanley drives me nuts with his incessant "LISTEN!" What purpose does that serve? I mean, if your preaching is so poor that you have to constantly remind people to "LISTEN!," maybe you need to rethink your preaching style or something.
After a while, I get so frustrated at his clamoring for me to "LISTEN!," I just turn my radio to some other good station that doesn't require me to "LISTEN!" about every 30 seconds.
I don't mean to be overly critical of Bro. Charley, but one would think that after all these many years of his public ministry, he'd avail himself of some kind of speech therapist to train him to stop saying "LISTEN!" so often.
Maybe he has done this but the therapist's therapy just didn't stick. I don't know if that's the case or not. Maybe this is just another example of how hard it is to "to teach an old dog new tricks."
Well, you've "LISTENED" long enough to my little pet peeve about the man some claim to be "America's Pastor." :wavey:
I fidget with purpose - essential tremors in my arms and hands.
It helps me focus.
Rolf....I tried it on....my ears are a little small, but yes, it could easily be a beanie.
