Take The Stress Out Of Ordering Stress Relievers

Updated: Apr 8

You go online and want to order a stress reliever for an upcoming trade show. Fine, it’s a nice enough handout - but price is driving the decision and not quality. And the absolute price of buying something that is sure to end up in the trash, is 100%. Note: Not all stress balls/relievers are the same! Like any product, they come with their own set of considerations. And because they’re generally low cost, those need to be considered more than just the price. A few of these considerations include:

1. Durability and Wear: Some stress balls may not withstand prolonged use. Over time, they might tear, lose their shape, or develop cracks. Opt for high-quality materials to ensure longevity.

2. Resistance Consistency: Not all stress balls offer consistent resistance. If you’re seeking a specific level of firmness, test them out before purchasing. Some stress balls may feel too soft or too hard, affecting their effectiveness.

3. Scent and Allergens: Scented stress balls can be delightful, but they might contain artificial fragrances or essential oils. Be cautious if you have allergies or sensitivities. Additionally, some people find the smell distracting or unpleasant.

4. Toxic Materials: While most stress balls are safe, there have been concerns about certain materials. For instance, some slime-filled stress balls contain phthalates, which are added to maintain pliability. Ensure that the stress ball you choose is free from harmful substances.

5. Complex Stressors: Stress balls are excellent for simple stress relief, but they may not effectively address complex or multifaceted sources of stress, such as work-related stress or relationship problems.

Lastly, think outside of the ball!

Been there, done that. With technology and molding capabilities there has come an increase in designs available. Here’s an example of the variety you can get in stress relievers - making them a great tool for you to target specific audiences in your business and a keepsake, not a throwaway!
