Promotional Stress balls for the most stressful time of the year

Spending so much time with family leaves most people reaching for their promotional stress balls. Recent research has shown that Christmas is the sixth most stressful event in life with 56% of people stating they find the 'most wonderful time of the year' the most stressful.

Psychologists state that most of us suffer from Christmas stress but don't even realise it. An overload of family, shopping and spending can leave most of us with increased stress levels. People worry for months planning one day, which goes too quickly. Experts state this can have an effect on your health.

Stressing about Christmas for weeks can leave you with a lower immune system which makes you particularly susceptible to colds and viruses. This can then cause more stress, which makes it a vicious cycle.

Christmas is also considered the season of divorce, as more couples part in this period than any other time of the year. It is believed that 1.8million couples will have contemplated divorce during the Christmas period. Again this is due to increased stress as well as spending more time together than usual, which can cause arguments. There is also the financial worry of the holiday which contributes to arguments.

There are a number of ways you can reduce stress over the holiday period. First of all you can plan ahead. Some people start their Christmas shopping very early, whilst most start in November and the final run-up to Christmas. This can cause all sorts of stress, as the present may not arrive in time or it may be sold out by the time you go to buy it. If you plan ahead all your Christmas shopping this will not only relieve the stress of the Christmas crowds but it will also help you to spread your spending. As well as planning your spending you can also plan your food and cooking. This again will minimise pressure.

If all else fails then a promotional stress ball will always come in handy. Knowing Christmas is such an issue for so many people, we have created specially designed Christmas theme stress balls. Stress balls are medically proven to relieve tension and stress just be squeezing the ball. Plan ahead for Christmas and purchase your promotional stress balls today.
