In 2010, 24 percent of Canadians age 15 or older reported that most of their days were quite or extremely stressful. Daily stress levels were highest for people aged 35 to 54, the core working population. Stress is also a large issue in the U.S., with 54 percent of Americans reporting concern about daily stress levels. Companies do their part to keep stress in check by providing promotional stress balls.
A Small Product Can Make a Big Difference
Sixty-six percent of North Americans say they are likely to seek help for stress and 75 to 90 percent of primary care physician visits in Canada are for stress-related issues. These statistics reveal that stress has become a major issue. Stress plays a major role in the daily lives of people of all ages, affecting both physical and mental health.
There is no universal cure for stress and it is nearly impossible to eliminate it from our lives. However, promotional products like stress balls, calming music, and relaxation exercises can go a long way. A stress ball offers big benefits because it allows a person to squeeze away tension and frustrations, transferring them from the body to the ball.
Giving Stress Balls to Other Professionals
A company can help reduce stress in the workforce by providing working professionals with stress balls. This is a great way for clients, customers, and prospects to improve their health at no cost. Stress in the workplace reduces productivity, increases absenteeism, and can lead to major health issues like cardiovascular conditions.
Promotional stress balls come in many shapes and designs, including a bright yellow smiley face that will make anyone feel better. Companies can have caption bubble, cruise ship, dice, football, and even brain stress balls imprinted with their names or logos. Each time users squeeze these, they will thank the business for making their day easier to handle.
