Counting our CoinsJanuary 4, 2013
We like the textures of the metal coins and the engraved images and words. We like to count our coins too. It is a stress relieving activity. We used to do this more often when we were younger. It is/was one of several self-stimulating behaviors we have.
Now we don’t really do it because it puts us into a certain kind of relaxed state that also decreases external awareness by a lot. So we can’t do other things for a while afterwards. Even when we have lots of time it doesn’t cross our minds to play with our count coins much anymore. Perhaps it has served its purpose in our lives. We aren’t sure.
