Stress Balls as a Study Tool
New studies have shown that stress balls can increase attention and memory. They can also help with fidgeting when sitting in class or trying to study in the library.
Most people chew on a pen cap while studying or bounce their legs out of nervousness or anxious habit. Squeezing a stress ball while studying can take away these other bad habits and replace them with something productive.
Squeezing the stress ball can also increase a student’s attention and memory, which means that using the stress ball while studying could make them better prepared for that test that is coming up. Advertising the stress ball as a study tool will also drastically increase the chance that the college student will use it after grabbing it from you and heading home.
Focus on the Health Promotions
Giving out stress balls is a fantastic gift at the university health clinic, health events going on at campus, or to have at the counseling center. Students will be more likely to take them if they know of the added health benefits as well.
Of course, they help with stress, but what else can they do? Stress balls can drastically help with carpal tunnel syndrome. This may not be a huge concern for young students, but with all the typing and texting, using a stress ball can take away some of the nasty symptoms associated with the disease.
All in all, stress balls at college are a fast and effective way to promote stress awareness and teach students how to effectively manage the side effects of stressful college life.
