Do you fidget with anything while you work?

Do you fidget with anything while you work? When it comes to work or anything really. Have you ever fidgeted with anything while working? For me, I carry around a loose string, one from an old hoodie I had. I don't know what it is, but I like fidgeting with it while I work. It eases my stress to have around, as weird as that sounds. 

I know fidget spinners were created for those who need them, but I just like to use a string. I like to scratch it with my nails as well, so that my nails get caught in the string. Does that make sense? I know it all sounds weird, but I imagine others fidget with stuff while working, or in general. Do you have a weird thing like that yourself? I don't think it's weird, but I can see some people finding it weird.

I recently got a squishy toy that I keep fidgeting with while I work and it really keeps me entertained. I suppose it would be even more helpful for someone with sensory issues.

I will sometimes shake my leg up and down when I am sitting still for a while. It was a habit I started because my knees and legs feel pain if I don't move enough. I will also chew on pen caps now and then if I am really concentrated on something.
