I unfortunately know a thing or two about stress.
Raising a cancer survivor.
Having a spouse in graduate school.
And the list goes on.
But, as a former healthcare worker, I am also acutely aware of the negative effects that stress has on the body. I realized last year that I needed to take concrete steps to manage stress so that I could be a more effective mother and wife. I’ve created a few small, yet productive, habits in my weekly routines that have helped enormously. Eight months ago I began regularly meditating. While my schedule may not allow me to exercise everyday, I deliberately exercise multiple times a week and participate in outdoor sports-like activities with my kids on the days that I am not able to visit the gym.
Although these habits have helped to make a great change in daily stresses, there are still times when a crazy schedule makes me want to fall back into unhealthy habits like stress eating. If this sounds familiar, Stressballs Day and Night Gummies may be a solution.
Look for Stressballs at your local Walmart or hover over the image below to shop online!
This NEW stress management product found only at Walmart features natural ingredients that help keep stress levels in balance day and night. Stressballs Gummies are habit-free, drug-free, and caffeine-free. Stressballs contain all natural ingredients of ashwagandha, lemon balm, valerian root, lavender, ginseng, and melatonin. Stressballs Day helps destress, focus, and reenergize. Stressballs Night helps with sleep, relaxation, and night time destressing. I am a fan of the natural herbal blend, and the Stressballs Night Gummies help during those times when I just can’t seem to get my mind to “turn off.”
Find both products in the vitamin aisle of your local Walmart.
Another natural way to relieve stress is the classic stress ball. I did a quick Google search and discovered that stress balls have been around since at least 1988. While I’ve received a few stress balls over the years, they always seem to be lost when I need them most. Now that I’ve learned to make my own with water beads, I will always have one around.
Supplies to create a DIY Stress Ball:
- Water beads
- Translucent balloon
- Clean and dry disposable water bottle
For this DIY, I am using water beads that are already in their full bead form. If you have beads that have not yet been soaked in water, follow the instructions on the package to complete this step. Of course, save a step by purchasing ready made water beads.
Fill the disposable 16 ounce water bottle with water beads.
Slightly inflate the balloon, and place the balloon over the top of the bottle.
Turn the bottle until all of the beads are in the balloon.
Slowly remove the balloon from the bottle. Remove all air from the balloon.
Tie the balloon to close it.
Use the stress ball as needed!
