When you’re feeling tense, you need to give yourself a break. Take time to play. Because doing so not only takes your mind off what you’re doing. It also relaxes your body. As well as calms your mind. Here’s an easy way to play at any time, in any place. All you need is a Quad Ball. With four bright colors, each in its own quadrant, it’s a feast for the eyes.
Begin by tossing the ball back forth between your hands. Vary your speed. Listen to the sound of the ball as it bounces off your hands. Observe how the sound changes as you toss lightly, then harder. Notice how the slightly tacky yet smooth, ultra soft skin makes the ball easy to hold. As well as how the soft, springy beads inside respond to touch. Squeeze. Listen to the gentle whooshing of the beads as they move around. And keep on squeezing and tossing. As you do, you’ll feel your muscles relax.
Gradually all your tension melts away. That’s because active play promotes a sense of well being. Focusing on the activity itself calms the mind. Tossing improves eye-hand coordination. Squeezing not only increases flexibility but also builds finger and hand strength. Quad Ball makes an appealing distraction toy. As well as an ideal fidget toy. Latex free. This irresistible thermoplastic, elastomer ball measures 2 1/2″ diameter.
Quad Ball 12-pack, sold separately, makes purchasing in quantity more affordable.
