Re: Stimming

Just wondering, does anyone else here have any verbal/ vocal stims?

And if so what are your favorites?

 

Like if I'm at home alone and in a good mood I'll make these little peeps and chirrups or chater my teeth together. It probably makes it sound like someone set free a heap of birds into the house Smiley Tongue

Or I'll just repeat a word I like the sound/ rhythm of. My favorite word to say is "echolalia" which actually refers to repeating words in that way.

 

But I'd love to add to my "library" of noises if anyone has any ideas, since it hasn't been that long since I felt comfortable enough to let myself explore them. 

Re: Stimming

Ooh~...
I don't really know if I have any vocal stims, but if I have in the past, they certainly were fun.

If you mean like rolling your tongue, lips, or both, I like to make a raspberry sound with them.
I can also put air into some parts of my mouth, and make some form of a gurgling noise/weird noise that my sister hates. Smiley Tongue

This all depends on my mood too.

Usually, I prefer music as a stim. I'll put on a song to match my mood, and sing along to it. Even when my family is home, they don't mind. Does music count?

Re: Stimming

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx I think that music counts as an auditory stim, which is slightly different (but still really fun!!).

Re: Stimming

Okay @Tiny_leaf!
In that case, I prefer auditory stims. Smiley Happy

Re: Stimming

I'm such a leg-tapper/shaker. I often find it difficult to sit still which can make 2 hr lectures tricky at uni haha. I'm a nail-biter, so I have an SNS manicure on my nails that is a lot harder than my actual nail. It is super satisfying to tap things like the table with my nails because it makes the best sound so I often do this. Typing for no reason is amazing. I also try and use noise-cancelling headphones with no-lyric music whenever I need to concentrate because it cancels out distracting things like dogs barking, neighbours moving around in their houses and other people in the library if I'm at uni. I'm so easily distracted by sound so this really helps me. Not sure if it counts as stimming though? It's more like blocking out stimulation?
