I need a stress ball quickly
We have a dart board in the office and it's amazing what a difference it makes. Stress balls are the best!
Fidgets !! We have fidgets around the house, to help with stress, but before those became popular, also have so called balls in different colors, bought at the hospital gift shop. Was a good idea, been around for a long time.
Great reminder - I need to do this.
Great idea I do have stress balls they were stored away since my hand surgery They are now out and i am using them starting today.
I actually have several different stress balls located all over the house and they double as my OT exercise equipment for my hands. They will only work if I use them and I have trouble remembering to use them.
Here's a youtube video I found on how to do some good exercises using the stress ball. Just sharing - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLgyubFK-BM
I have an apple-shaped one on my desk at work, and I always used assorted ones as a warmup for my piano students.
The folks in the exercise, PT room at the nursing home I was in for awhile, passed out puddy in a plastic cup with a lid. These are also great! I don't know if it is Silly Puddy or what but it shouldn't be that hard to find. Just DON'T STRESS OVER IT! :D
Businesses often pass out stress balls with their logo at job & health fairs. One can make their own small hand held bean bag using scraps of materials and beans! Just remember to give the beans some room to move (do not over stuff) and that will give you a squeezable stress ball!
I need to know where to get one of these balls.
Who knew a stress ball could be beneficial. I have several - I'm going to start using them. one at home, one in the car, one in my desk, etc....Thanks for the advice.
Will get one ASAP! Great idea!
