Keeping Your Cool With A Surfing Stress Ball
A stress ball can come in all shapes and sizes. A surfing stress ball is a hand sized ball that has some surfing logo on the ball. It is made of rubber or some other squeezable material and is squeezed by the owner when they feel stressed or anxious. It's a way of getting the stress out of the system by some form of physical activity. Of course a stress ball is not only about physical activity. The various shapes and sizes of stress balls give a psychological aspect to the stress relief. For instance, you can get animal or cartoon figures to use as a stress reliever. Not only can you squeeze away your stress but you can think about the humorous cartoon character and this helps you to relax. The surfing stress ball is much the same. Apart from squeezing out the anxiety, you will also see your 'aloha', palm tree or long board logo and be reminded of the times spent down at the beach. Or maybe you've never been to the beach but can imagine that it will be relaxing, pleasant, sun shining and you are sipping a cocktail. These pleasant associations will add to you sense of relaxation and help to relieve stress.
Stress balls also work in a tactile and auditory sense. You can put different types of material inside a ball or just have a foam rubber type ball. If you have things like rice, dry beans, oatmeal or small beads inside the ball this will give more texture to the hand when it is squeezed. This can have a massage affect on the hand and be soothing. The sound of the rice, beans or beads being squeezed can also be relaxing and soothing.
The stress ball is really a modern adaption of the worry beads or rosary that some catholic people carry around. It helps a person do something to get the frustration out but also helps them to change their focus. These are two great strategies for stress relief. Physical activity helps to get the affects of stress hormones out of the system. People often use exercise or sport to relax after a stressful day at work. And the iconography or imagery of the rosary, or in this case, the surfing stress ball can help a person redirect their thoughts from a busy day at the office.
The medical profession is unsure whether a stress ball actually works. For instance, many doctors believe that deep breathing is a better way to relief stress than squeezing a stress ball. Studies have shown mixed results with stress balls. In reality it seems that it depends on the type of person and the frequency that the stress ball is used. Some people respond to meditation rather than a game of squash as a means of relaxation. These people may not find a stress ball useful. And, if the stress ball is used all the time, it's effectiveness may become diminished or it may become a source of stress in itself.
