How does one get less violent/disruptive stims? My stim is literally thrashing my body against a bed/on a trampoline, and I kinda hate it, but I can’t stim any other way

May I ask, if it's okay, why do you hate it?

stims, autism 

@goodberry I don’t hate the stim necessarily, but it’s kind of destructive to my environment lol. Like, over the years I have broken two bedframes and one trampoline lol

Oh, right, hmmm, have you tried dancing? Dancing I find can be just as energetic and thrashy but hopefully without the destruction.

@goodberry I do love dancing! I think that might be a good replacement!

As for suggestions of what to do instead, well first of all what have you tried?

@goodberry I’ve tried swinging and rocking back and forth. They’re good but not the same.
