How Does Stress Ball Help To Relieve Stress?
They distract you
While you are squeezing a stress ball, you can concentrate on what your hands are doing instead of on the source of your tension. This can help to shrink your worry down to a manageable size because it won’t be the only thing occupying your mind.
They Provide a mini workout
Squeezing the ball is a form of exercise for your arm. It helps to improve your circulation and increases the flow of oxygen to the brain. This can relieve a racing heart rate and help to steady your breathing: two common physical symptoms of a heavy amount of stress.
They can make you happy
Whether stress balls have novelty shapes or whimsical sayings on them, they can cheer you up, at least for a brief period of time. This mood boost can help to calm you down.
They can help you meditate
If you squeeze the ball tightly and then let go, you’re actually tightening and then relaxing your arm muscle. This can be a good source of meditation if you keep your focus on the movement and squeeze and release for at least 5 minutes. Meditation has long been known as one of the most effective ways to relieve stress.
Thanks for the ball, Paul!
It’s almost 5AM. Gotta love vacations. In fact, between you and me, I miss being unemployed…
So, here’s this girl’s story:
Being mouthless was some sort of an irrelevant, purposeless incident. However the tiger pattern on her upper body was an experimentation. It didn’t work, so I had to remove it and explore the idea of this un-washable redness on her hands. I figured if I add veins it would look a bit stronger.
So, this red-handed (i’m calling her that for now! ;P) started taking form and stuff.. posing and taking pictures with her iphone while trying out some red on red..!
