Stress is the "wear and tear" our bodies experience as we adjust to our
continually changing environment; it has physical and emotional effects
on us and can create positive or negative feelings. As a positive
influence, stress can help compel us to action; it can result in a new
awareness and an exciting new perspective. As a negative influence, it
can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression,
which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset
stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease,
and stroke.

Negative Effects of Stress

In prehistoric times, the physical changes in response to stress were an
essential adaptation for meeting natural threats. Even in the modern
world, the stress response can be an asset for raising levels of
performance during critical events such as a sports activity, an
important meeting, or in situations of actual danger or crisis. If stress
becomes persistent and low-level, however, all parts of the body's stress
apparatus (the brain, heart, lungs, vessels, and muscles) become
chronically over- or under-activated. This may produce physical or
psychologic damage over time. Acute stress can also be harmful in certain
situations.

Stress-related conditions that are most likely to produce negative
physical effects include:

1. An accumulation of persistent stressful situations, particularly those
that a person cannot easily control (for example, high-pressured work
plus an unhappy relationship).

2. Persistent stress following a severe acute response to a traumatic
event (such as an automobile accident).
3. An inefficient or insufficient relaxation response.

4. Acute stress in people with serious illness, such as heart disease.

Relieving Stress with a Stress Ball!
Stress balls are wonderful for relieving tension and pent up frustration.
Many people will find that when they are going through a period of stress
they feel the need to do something with their hands.

For example some people play with the loose change in their pockets while
others make patterns and shapes with their fingers or tap them
rhythmically on the tabletop.

Stress balls are a cheap alternative to the incessant hand movements that
some people find annoying. They can be squeezed over and over again until
you feel your nerves calming down because most are made from materials
that regain their original shape when they are not being squeezed.

So what are you waiting for? We urge you to find out more about how
Stress Balls can benefit you today!
