Help Boost Staff Morale With Promotional Stress Balls

Every day a quarter of a million people are off work with stress and with work being the third most common cause of stress it's time to boost your employee's morale with promotional stress balls.

The British economy loses over thirteen million working days a year due to stress-related absences. Unfortunately, stress is also linked to many other more serious illnesses, so it is important to combat stress as soon as symptoms develop. So what exactly is stress? Stress is defined as a condition or emotion felt when an individual feels they are unable to cope with the pressures and demands which have been given to them.

There are three different types of stress; acute, episodic acute and chronic. The latter being the most serious condition. Acute is the most common type of stress as it can happen to anyone, it is important to treat and manage the condition whilst it is at this stage to ensure it does not develop any further. Stress is a part of everyday life and whilst some don't suffer as much as others we are all affected by stress at some point in our lives. Just think about how many times you heard someone complaining about the stress or pressures they are under.

So how can you help your employees to cope with stress? The simplest answer is by providing them with stress balls. This may seem like a very easy answer for such a complex condition however stress balls are medically recognised to help deal with stress. The simple process of squeezing a stress ball enables your muscles to tense and then relax. The Stress, Anxiety and Depression centre state the 'process of acute muscle tension and relaxation' flushes out muscle tension thus relieving stress.

Whilst there are other ways in which stress can be relieved including yoga, pilates, and social events, stress balls are the least time consuming and most cost-effective way of dealing with stress.

Providing your employees with stress balls can show them that you really care about their well-being and health. It is also the most cost-effective way to boost morale within your office. Stress balls are entirely customisable meaning you can choose your own design making it personal to your business. Designs can be very corporate and simple or fun and creative designs.

So if you want to boost morale and try to reduce absenteeism, give promotional stress balls a try.
