Relieve Stress With Promotional Stress balls

Promotional stress balls can be used to get you through a stress full day. Sometime our days can be unbearable with stress, worries and pressure being a major cause of this. With the UK just coming out of recession money issues can be the most worrying thing.

During the recession business failed and many people were made redundant, stress levels were high. There are many ways to relieve stress, such as developing hobbies, relaxing to a bit of music and exercising. However most of the time our stress usually comes from the work place and obviously at work we don’t have time to relax with a bit of music or head out to the gym on our breaks.

One of the solutions to relieving stress at work would be to squeeze a promotional stress ball. Promotional stress balls are an effective stress management tool. You can use a promotional stress ball in meetings or throughout a stressful day in general. Promotional stress balls a small enough to carry them around in your pocket or keep them on your desk. A promotional stress ball is squeezed when the feeling of stress overwhelms you. It’s doesn’t lose its shape, so it can be squeezed as many times a day as you like.

So how does a promotional stress ball work to relieve stress? Well by squeezing the promotional stress ball you automatically take away some of the focus on the thing that is causing stress, as your brain has to think about squeezing the promotional stress ball and not solely on the thing that’s causing you to stress. A promotional stress ball provides a slight distraction for you mind to relax and focus more.

To release stress you squeeze the promotional stress ball, by squeezing it and stimulates nerves in the hand which improves blood circulation. This in turn supplies more nutrients such as oxygen and glucose and eliminates toxins such as carbon dioxide and lactate. The nerves carry signals to the brain which is particularly connected with emotions (*). With the hand nerves being used and so stimulating the brain it also helps to produce endorphins that are similar to natural pain relief (*).

So to avoid ventilating your stress by shouting, throwing or even crying, pick up a promotional stress ball to calm you down. Meditation can also be used to divert your attention from stress, using a promotional stress ball is said to work in a similar way, stabilizing both mind and so the body relaxes (*).

Getting a company logo, name or a phrase printed onto the promotional stress ball, could provide two benefits, stress relief and a bit of promotion for a company. So why not give a promotional stress ball a squeeze today.
