Stress presents in different ways, it could be emotionally, psychologically or physically – when our body can’t contain it anymore. One time, I was shocked when my hands got so numb and it kept on recurring. When I had it checked, it was due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome(CTS). This is an illness affecting the median nerve of the hand causing numbness, paresthesias (a tingling feeling in the skin) and pain. I was advised to go on therapy and that was when I got an anti-stress ball. It was then that I realized how stressed my hands were because I am always in the computer.

Now that I’ve already resigned from office work, I now have control as to when and how long I should be in the computer. But due to the current number of clients I have now, it’s really long long hours of work,lol.

Pardon me for getting a photo in Google. My hands are swelling and reddish as I write this and kinda embarrassed to show the “real hand”, lol. I even dropped a friend’s HTC new incredible s mobile phone coz my wrist suddenly went numb one time. 🙁

Stress balls have different shapes and textures and it is best to get something that is of good quality. There are promotional products available that are so cheap yet, effective. We often think that low price means low quality, but this does not apply all the time. I always look forward for promotions of products because it is my way to try the products and see its effectiveness. Once it passes my liking, I would get it even if it is no longer under promotional price. When it comes to health and wellness, I think we are all willing to spend money. I would say that this is a must-have for us, most especially to those who are in the corporate world or those that are always busy typing on their computers. The best thing about this is, it is so light and handy that could be brought anywhere and can be used whenever we need to give our hands a break. Just like all the other parts of our body, our hands deserve also a break once in a while.

There are plenty of anti-stress balls as promotional products and I am planning to buy a few more. I just thought that this would make great presents to all my close friends. They are just as busy as I am and just as addicted to Facebook as I am. I love the different shapes and molds of the products that are being offered and I’m sure my friends would love it. I just want to share the kind of relief I got from having these anti-stress balls and I don’t want them to experience the pain I’ve suffered due to CTS. I always bring my anti-stress ball with me and I use it whenever I need to relax my hands and improve the blood circulation, too. I would say that this is just the greatest ballgame for me, not asking too much of an energy, but de-stresses bigtime, just like any sports 🙂
