My main go tos for home are rocking, pacing, and fidgets. I've been working out with my resistance band then I goy a kettle bell and its in the bed with me because I find it hard to stim there. Any other suggestions?

weighted vest, weighted back pack, weighted wrist and ankle bands.... not all at once, but maybe you will prefer the feedback from one over the other. I have got to where I love my backpack and look forward to how it makes me feel when I wear it. Awkward if you want to sit down, but on the go, it is amazing. Enjoy exploring all the sensory feedback!

I don't know what to think on this one. On the one hand its an advantage: you end up being more motivated to work out than most. On the other hand, it is no longer healthy.

I am glad for me its not a stim. Even though it means I forget to work out most of the time.

When, one day, I will finally get myself to work out on a regular basis, I will be able to be proud of it and feel healthy about it. Since I know in my case its not a stim :)

Yeah that another way to look at it because I find myself doing exercises that are comfortable so I shouldn't limit to that but be well rounded.

It’s certainly a better stim than some stims.

I almost wish working out was a stim for me.
