Day 192: Squeeze Away Stress

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM

Today's Positivity activity: Use Theraputty as a stress-relieving aid.

Do this instead of:  Letting stress build up

I recently injured my hand in a rather silly mishap, and my doctor recommended that I use the Silly-Putty style stuff shown here for hand strengthening exercises. (I got the pink. Yay!) When I gave it a try, I found a side benefit--it wasn't only physically therapeutic to work with the putty, but it was mentally relaxing as well. So today, I'll be focusing on the stress relieving benefits of Theraputty while I'm at work. If you don't have any, you can try this out with Play-Doh, Silly Putty, a plain rubber ball, or even rice stuffed in a sock. 

The Results: This really does work for letting off a bit of excess "stress energy". I would have used it quite a bit today if my hand hadn't decided to behave rather badly. (If only I could have given it a time out!) But if you can get your hands on a rubber ball or some putty, I highly recommend this.
