How Rubber Bands Relieve Stress

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Stress is like taxes or traffic jams. We all endure it at some point in our lives. In fact, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, seven out of 10 adults say they experience stress or anxiety daily. And just like taxes and traffic jams, you can’t just make it go away. You can, however, implement tactics to help manage it. Even five minutes of aerobic exercise can stimulate anti-anxiety effects. If you find yourself stressed at the office and unable to break out the jumping jacks in your suit, a rubber band ball is your answer.

The soft texture of a rubber band ball soothes our sense of touch. Simply squeeze the rubber band ball in your hand. The squeeze and release motion helps release some of that stress energy, and you will begin to feel the stress fade.

Rubber band balls are also handy if you or someone you know is in a fidgety mood. Having the rubber band in hand can help release all that nervous energy.
