MENTAL HEALTH PORN: [CHEWING FORKS]

DRUG FREE PRESCRIPTIONS!

Some of us are anxious, all/most of the time. We’ve got busy brains, busy bodies, lots to get done and we’re trying to change our worlds. It’s not a simple stress free process and even if it were we’d find something to panic over.

One solution is to suppress and subsidise these feelings with mind-altering narcotics, this, as effective as it can potentially be, can also lead to LOTS MORE anxiety when your not using them; creating a reliance on such substances, costing dolla and robbing your sanity.

Another solution is something I have found myself doing over and over again. Chewing, fiddling, twiddling, picking, sucking and tapping with plastic straws, toothpicks, swizzle sticks, teaspoons.

It may look odd to an outside observer but you’re probably a bit odd anyways and quite frankly we don’t need to give a fuck what that other person thinks as long as we aren’t harming them or ourselves and we’re proceeding with love.

Straws, sticks and plastic cutlery are usually pretty accessible in public spaces and cost nothing. They are particularly prevalent in bars and “Pret a Manger’s” across the world which is handy if you’re out and about and particularly if you aren’t drinking and everyone else is.

It’s probably NOT a good idea to chew on metal ones so you don’t damage your teeth; and ideally they wouldn’t even be plastic, but made of wood chipping and kale or something but these kinds of things are less readily available ATM, (please can someone invent these thanks ;p).

So instead of drugs, grab yourself a fidget stick of some kind and, like a steam valve on a kettle, let some of the extra out with a bit of fidgeting, and “fuck whatcha heard”, from the people pointing fingers.

Here’s a visual list of chewable, twizzlable items that can help relieve your anxiety…

1. SWIZZLE STICKS:
