I'm probably that mom that all of the teachers hated last spring. Yes, I bought my boys fidget spinners. A couple actually. I did not give them permission to take them to school, but unfortunately that did happen. I did notice that they helped them concentrate, however. For the past couple of months, they have been able to carry on conversations without becoming antsy to look at a screen in their lap. They've been able to watch a show on tv all the way through! These are very good things, as long as you don't mind a fidget spinner whizzing around on a finger while you talk to the kids. Ok, it's not that bad, but they really have helped.
I can say that I honestly don't mind. At times, I feel like I'm the original fidgeter. For me, my body is just restless. I have a hard time getting comfortable, and will often shift my weight, tuck one leg under, and then untuck a few minutes later. At least I'm able to recognize that I do this, and I can also tell you-it's frustrating to me. It is torture trying to sit still in meetings. My husband says it's like my skeleton wants to jump out of my skin. I've tried hard to control it by modifying my need to, well...fidget.
Renascent Studios makes a unique fidget chain ring that is both dainty and feminine. An original style ring that looks like two rings in one. With dainty jewelry being on trend right now, the ring is perfect. I always wear dainty jewelry, so my ring is like my version of the fidget spinner.
The Renascent Studios worry ring is a squared sterling silver band with a delicate chain gently dangling from the band. There are three little rings attached that move freely around the front of the ring, perfect to fiddle with. Renascent Studios offers several variations of their fidget ring-with or without the chain, the color of the chain and the rings. My ring (shown below) is sterling silver with a 14kt gold filled chain. It has 2 gold filled rings and one silver ring. It is so unique-I have people ask about it all the time.
These rings make great stacking rings and they are perfect for people with busy hands (yes, that's me). For people that are anxious or stressed they provide an excellent distraction and they work great to help focus your mind when meditating. Think of it as a beautifully adult version of the fidget spinner. Renascent Studios was ahead of the times! They have a whole shop full of lovely items.
