It's about what is called "stimming"
According to wiki... stimming is "a repetitive body movement that self-stimulates one or more senses in a regulated manner. Stimming is known in psychiatry as a "stereotypy", a continuous movement."

I rock/sway back and forth if I'm standing for more than a few minutes.. always have. I know I've got some issues... lol. But it's only standing- not sitting or anything else. I also know that my mom does too..

What I'm trying to figure out is where does the need to rock/sway come from- pinpointed and is this a genetic thing.. I'm trying to figure if there is a relation between her rocking and mine and if it's some "thing" that was passed down...

She was born in the 40's before all e crazy vaccines and I was born in the 70's before the newer, crazier ones we have today came out.

She's probably overstimulated in some way and is channeling the extra energy into the movement. Kind of like really strong fidgeting.

Most stereotypies can be reduced or entirely eliminated. Seek psychiatric support if you feel you would benefit from less rocking while standing.

Don't try and figure it out either because you will inevitably run into the brick wall of "nature verses nurture."

Do t get me wrong... I love the rocking. It's soothing on some unknown level I'm sure... I'm sure I'm probably singing in my head as I'm doing it. My mom is also musically inclined. .. aside from our mental issues, let me ask you this...

If you are a musician in any kind of sense (I'm a singer, my mom played the organ, my brother the drums, my brother the guitar/bass and singing) next time you're standing, do you sway back and forth and if you catch yourself doing so, are you thinking of music?

Funny, even as I'm typing this, I have some song "playing" in the background of my mind..lol "let me run my fingers down your back.."

Anyway...


I KNOW me and my mom rock when standing for more than a minute (just long enough for our subconscious to "check out" of the present line of thinking in order to move on to... music) and I think the drummer may too... not sure of the bassist- will watch next time I'm with him.

Stimming is a way to get the central nervous system the stimulation it feels it needs to feel "ok".

Could be both mild genetics combined with you simply learning it from your mother. and having been cradled as a child.

My ex used to be afraid of swimming. since she was a child. she loved being in the water but she hated when she couldnt see the floor or the pool had openings.

so when i was with her i asked her mom about this and how that could have happened. she said nothing ever happened. it was always like that. but when i talked to her mother she told me she almost drowned in a pool when she got a foot stuck between bars. while she was pregnant with my ex.

so im pretty sure thats where it comes from.
pretty cool imo. kinda sad for her tho. she hates all pools and open waters.

I've always done this too, but even more so after having babies. It's soothing, and I also hate standing/sitting still for long periods of time.

Cheers rocking friend :) :hf:

It's funny to see me and my mom in a line/waiting... we're moving and no one else is... but we're also happier looking than most non-rockers.


Wondering if it's more prevalent in the musically inclined...?
