- Running around in circles, which I can't do anymore.

- Eating terribly bland types of snacks, such as plain rice cakes, bread crusts and dry breakfast cereal.

- Gazing at myself in the mirror. I am not intentionally vain; it's just an attempt to connect with something i.e. myself.

Wow, I can relate to all of those.

Rubbing the satin bottom part of my Wubby on my cheek. (A Wubby is a small security blanket usually used by infants and toddlers)
Playing with small children's toys.
Listening to the squeek of balloons while I make balloon animals

I find staring at red lights strangely mesmerising.

Dressing and posing my ball-jointed doll.

Writing horrors and bloody/gory scenes in my novels. (Oddly relaxing, but I promise I'm no psycho. O.o )

Staring at fine art for extended periods of time.

Listening to a single song on repeat (but only if it has an astoundingly catchy bridge).

Drawing zombies.

Balloon animals can be fun.

I used to be able to blow up lots of them at fairs.
These days I only do an occasional one as an improv comedy piece.
Do you use a pump?

There are incredible balloon artist in my neck of the woods.

The first thing I thought of was, rubbing a pen or pencil lightly across the inside of my forearm near the elbow. Or on my neck just behind and below my right ear, too. Not sure why this action will soothe me, but if I were a cat, this would make me close my eyes and purr!

:P

Depends on the shopping cart. The high end shopping carts they had at Target here were very relaxing to push. The wheels felt like they were gliding on air and the cart went where you pushed it. Now Walmart on the other hand have shopping carts from hell. Every cart has at least one broken wheel which pulls the cart to one side. The wheels sometimes are clogged so your shopping cart turns into a sled instead of a cart you have to push. The carts also rattle and look absolutely covered in filth.

I also like clicking pens, dragging my hands across satin sheets, popping bubblewrap(my favourite stim), and typing on laptop keyboards (I love the way they feel).


That last paragraph is basically me aswell.
I love clicking pens and popping bubblewrap etc.
I like both types of carts though I prefer the ones like target.Though I've never even seen a Target but there's this supermarket with cars just as you described that is affiliated to Wallmart:"Amigo" (ah-me-goh) That means friend in spanish.Though the Wallmart carts are lack luster compared to those. :D
Question:
¿Do you also like when your on your way to your car and the cart just vibrates because of the road?
That's the best sensation I've ever felt.

Most of mine have been mentioned by others, but I'll mention a couple anyway :)

I like watching fan blades rotating, specifically ceiling fans.

I like rainy days but only if we don't have to go out in them, and it wasn't a gardening day. But having quiet stuff to do inside on a rainy day is lovely.

I also find it relaxing to watch slow moving clouds, where you have to watch for a while to tell that they're moving at all.

I love that too. Very relaxing.
