PPU 058: Fidget Toys


Fidget toys are things we play with when we’re sitting in a meeting or concentrating on a tough problem, or overall just feeling a bit fidgety. Personally, my desk looks a little like a toy store stocked with putty, legos, colored rocks, and stress balls galore. I use these as a way to keep my mind engaged, particularly when I don’t have time to take breaks or get up and move around much.

This episode of the Productivity Power Up podcast is all about fidget toys: why we fidget, the “science” behind fidget toys and productivity, and ideas for which toys lend themselves particularly well to fidgeting.
