Promotional Stress Balls Can Help Relieve Work Stress for Your Clients

On a day-to-day basis, thousands of people sit at their desks at work with their head in their hands, fiddling with stationery and biting their nails whilst thinking about the amount of work they should be doing, the demands that they are unable to cope with and the deadlines they are struggling to meet. Stress is a big part of everyone’s life. In small doses, stress can motivate people to perform under pressure to the best of their abilities, however, if left to get worse, stress can induce serious physical, psychological and behavioural problems, which can lead to people taking sick leave from work and not being able to finish work tasks.

Because of this, employers everywhere lose millions of pounds every year without realising that the solution is so simple: stress balls. There are many ways of relieving stress but they are generally time-consuming and often do not work. Issuing employees with stress balls means that they all have a stress reliever at their desk whilst they’re working; they can even use them whilst working!

Stress balls improve blood circulation (which also means people who use them are less likely to develop repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome) and allow people to regain energy when feeling drained. Stress balls also help people to focus on something other than the source of their stress. Using a stress ball is a short-term reliever of stress which can be used for as long as necessary and therefore, is one of the most effective relievers of stress.

Other ways of relieving stress include taking regular breaks, eating healthily, exercising, sleeping well and organising and prioritising your workload before starting tasks but these should be done everyday, whether stressed or not. Other ways of combating stress are generally temporary solutions and may not make a difference to a lot of people such as interacting with others throughout the day and using spare time outside of work to relax and find something enjoyable to do.

In extreme cases, people turn towards therapy to relieve stress. Stress balls have not been medically proven yet, but there are many testimonials from people who use them on a regular basis that say that they are the best way to relieve stress, especially when used along with the other stress relievers previously mentioned.

When thinking about stress balls, it is easy just to imagine a foam or gel sphere covered in a rubber-like surface, but nowadays, stress balls come in all shapes, colours, textures and sizes and if you can’t find one you like, you can get one made up. You can also have stress balls personalised with a company logo or name which is a popular choice because it means that companies can give out stress balls to clients as well as employees for promotional reasons.

Overall, stress balls are one of the best options when attempting to relieve stress; they are cheap and effective and everybody loves them! Next time there’s a stress ball in front of you, try not to give it a squeeze, you will find it almost impossible!
