A design student in Hungary just came up with what could possibly be considered as the coolest stress ball ever.
Dénes Sátor gave the old-fashioned globe map an exciting twist when he incorporated it on this project. It may simply look like a very colorful stress ball but when squeezed, the egg map zooms in and shows Budapest’s street names.
Sator points out that his invention is relevant despite the widespread use of modern technology. Sure, smartphones and GPS can be a big help but he argues that his stress ball doesn’t need any batteries or WiFi coverage. Also, he says that traditional maps can be torn while the egg ball is sturdy and even waterproof. It fits just right on your pocket and apart from helping you navigate a place, it even helps relieve stress.
Currently, Sator is hoping he could sell the maps plus create designs for other cities, too. You can check out his official page over at Facebook for additional information.
Health Benefits of a Stress Ball
Stress balls can be extremely easy to find. You can buy them at stores or you may also get them for free since many businesses have them as giveaways for customers. What’s great about them is that they bring significant health benefits.
According to HealthGuidance, that the “simple act of squeezing something in your hand can help you ease a few of your concerns, release some built-up tension, and make you feel like you are at least doing something rather than brooding upon everything that has you down.”
The LiveStrong website, on the other hand, emphasized that squeezing a stress ball allows you to decrease tension and stress. On top of that, it may even help with improving blood circulation.
Most of the time, stress balls are also used for meditation purposes plus it can be a useful tool for strengthening hand and wrist muscles. Decreased stress can eventually lead to better sleep.
