Stress Relieving Balls
Make your own stress balls at home. Creating your own stress ball can be a creative way to release pressure and have fun making a squishy and playful item. You can even customize your own by choosing your favorite color (or a calming one, such as blue) and adding stickers or colored patterns.
A stress ball is a fun and malleable toy that's a great tool for portable stress relief. Both adults and children can squeeze the toy in their hands, moving their fingers around to relieve muscle tension, stress, and to exercise the hand. Beyond being a toy, stress balls may help make you feel relaxed and lower your blood pressure. Toss one in your bag before you start a busy day or keep one at your desk for convenient stress relief.
These little balls are indeed a simple and harmless way to have an outlet for stressful emotions rather than letting them build up and manifest in some other way we might regret later. With a few simple supplies and a few minutes of time, we can give ourselves some DIY stress relief. Yes, this solution is more appropriate for all ages. To make our own stress balls we’re going to use some pretty basic supplies.
You will need:
- An empty water bottle (or other bottle with a small neck opening)
- Sharpie Marker & Small Amount of Yarn (If you want to add a face and hair)
