Stress Help To Comfort and Soothe Anxious Professionals
Don’t lose it! Helpful Tools to Combat Stress, Fatigue, and Boredom
Sitting jobs are stressful and challenging-especially for those (of us) who have trouble sitting.
Now and again, we all need something to distract us from a mundane or tedious task. Because we can’t all just get up and walk away from the computer screen, or set aside a project with a deadline, it helps to have a stress gadget handy to stay focused and provided a much needed break to bring our thoughts back to what we need to accomplish.
It’s okay to become distracted. Sometimes when we stop the thought process and take a mini break, it gives our minds a chance to take that, ‘deep breath.’ And, who knows what kind of genius we can come up with once we’ve had a chance to give our mind that freedom.
If changing careers isn’t an option right now then these specially designed stress relief gadgets are one option – And a short term solution – For what could be . . . just a much needed break!
A minute or two using some of these stress tools can mean the difference between stress management and stress melt down. Battling stress sometimes means we have to look for those things that help us to think outside the, “Box.”
Stress Management Tools and Gadgets:
1. The Dammit Doll
The dammit doll even comes with its own poem. These not only make great stress relief if you happen to work at home as a Day Trader and either; 1) Made a bad trade that day, or 2) Are forcing a trade that just isn’t working, then right NOW you need to take a second and grab this little doll and do just like the poem says, . . .
“Whenever things don’t go so well.
When you want to hit the wall and yell,
Here’s a little Dammit Doll that you can’t do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs
and find a place to slam it.
And as you whack the stuffing out,
Yell, “Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!”
Right now our Dammit Doll has so much stuffing popping out of it that it looks like a mop, but does it work . . . Yes!

2. Squeeze it Stress Balls
Smash it, squeeze it, throw it, crush it, sometimes a great ball is exactly what we need to get our task at hand back in focus.

Stress Ball varieties include, but are not limited to:
A ball – Stringy Ball Stress Ball – A Ball on a leash – No chasing after this one if it slips from your grasp and falls to the floor, or behind a cabinet.
