Stress balls look like a little funny play toys at first, and for a long time everyone but the highest achievers on the cutting edge of new stress relief techniques considered them to be exactly that – nothing but a toy that was really, really easy to ignore as a legitimate solution for washing away stress, pressure, and anxiety.
Today, however, pretty much everyone dealing with stress and anxiety – especially those in office situations – understand that stress balls are very much the “real deal” when it comes to effectively combating these often times overwhelming feelings.
It’s all about using stress balls correctly and really maximizing the benefits that they are able to bring to the table. Hopefully by the time you’re done with this quick you’ll know exactly how stress balls relieve stress and how to make the most of them going forward!
Relieve The Pressure And Tension By Working Out Your Muscles
Believe it or not, stress and pressure can physically manifest in the body – and if you still aren’t sure of that, just feel your neck or your shoulders when you’re feeling really stressed out – and you need to do everything in your power to melt that pressure out of your body ASAP before it builds and builds into something unstoppable.
By squeezing stress balls on a regular basis you’re going to be able to promote better circulation in your body by activating the muscles in your hands, your wrist, and your which are connected to the muscles in your shoulder and your neck. The stress balls provide just the right amount of resistance and tension to give you a quality workout without fatiguing your hands or your body at the same time.
Stress Balls Are Also Effective As a Physical Therapy And Recovery Tool
You don’t only have to squeeze stress balls to get the highest possible use out of them when it comes to melting away pressure and anxiety.
Most stress balls are also designed to be placed down on the ground and then laid on top of, with the ball contacting your shoulder or the very bottom of your neck. Then all you have to do is roll yourself around on top of the ball to release the facia that has built up because of stress and anxiety.
Just be prepared that this is going to hurt a little bit the first few times you do it, especially if you have been feeling really overwhelmed and anxious. But after a while that pain will be gone completely and you’ll feel totally refreshed.
