    I Rock Back and Forth While Listening to Music.

    I've been rocking back and forth to music all of my life. As a little kid, I used to rock back and forth to any music that I heard on the t.v or the radio because it would really comfort me and make me feel secure. I'm so glad that other people...

    Shock!

    I know how you feel and thought I was the only one to do this! I was worried a little since I'm 16 now and I have been doing it since I was 8. I'm happy my parents didn't stop me or punish me. I love doing it! I sit on the couch, put my headphones on and listen to it while...

    The Reasons I Rocked

    From age 3 until 20 years old I was a rocker. I sat on the couch usually listening to music rocking rapidly back and forth for hours a day. It was addictive, I hated when people came in the room because I was embarrassed and would have to stop rocking. My mother asked my doctor...

    I Don't Know Why.

    I will sit in front of my computer and without realizing it I am rocking. So many people ask why I do and all I can say is ''I don't know.'' So does anyone know what cause this or is it just a habit? I would really like to know.

    Yeah so I guess it never occurred to me to

    actually google it, or explore if it's an issue for others because much like most people- I really thought I was the only one. I put my headphones in, get in the Indian style sitting position, and listen to music. I normally go through a wide range- depending on my mood or what...

    It Calms Me

    I first started doing it 21 years ago when my daughter was born because it seemed to calm her down. Years and years later, I guess I never stopped, only it's me that calms down now.

    Yep...

    I am 44 years old and have been a "rocker" all my life. Like the other posters, I do this unconsciously & am not necessarily anxious or depressed. If I can't rock, I usually jiggle my foot. I also wiggle my foot while falling asleep. My "rocking" was just...

    This is what I learned

     Since I was a very small child.  Sometimes, as an adult, it can be embarrassing.  I do it without thought or even noticing. I have asked several health care professionals, they have all told me the same thing.  It's a nervous habit.  Since it began at...
