How to Bust Stress with Stress Fighting Promos

Funny Stress

Memorial Day has come and gone and now we are all back reality, back to our stressful lives. In a day and age where everyone is on the go and there really is no time for rest and relaxation, stress in our society is something we all suffer from. We have to fit stress relief in where ever we can otherwise we may lose it!

6 Stress Busting Practices and Promotion Ideas that Help Fight Stress

  1. Plan ahead: Plan ahead and get organized. Being organized will make you less stressed and will also put you in a positive space so that you will have better days. Positivity will help you get more tasks accomplished. There are great  tools and gifts to facilitate organization such as custom note pads, memo pads and padfolios, just to name a few.
  2. Use your imagination: Daydreaming, who doesn’t need a mental vacation sometimes? By simply visualizing anything that keeps your thoughts away from current stressors we can immediately become relaxed and less stressed throughout the day. Visual aids often help us to mentally escape if only for a little while. Logoed office items such as calendars and printed frames with your favorite vacation photo can help to mentally transport you to your favorite vacation spot.
  3. Give a little love: Love encourages your body’s natural relaxation response. By cuddling and snuggling even a teddy bear we can just for an instant forget all of the stresses of the world. The color red in many cultures is associated with invoking positive feelings. Fung Shui regards the color red as the color of arousal and is regarded as bring joy and excitement. Stress ball hearts can help to bring happiness to our day. What better way to think about the one we love than with a photo frame keychain. Nothing makes us feel loved more than the ones we love.
  4. Listen to relaxing music: Soothing sounds are known for being one of the best things we can do to relax. From different types of music to CDs with nothing but ocean sounds we use sounds all of the time to relax. What better way to promote your business then by offering portable speakers, while offering some stress relief? Not only can they be used in the home or office, but they can also be used out on the go or at a picnic. I can’t think of too many other things that would give your business better exposure.
  5. Get exercise: Working out is one of the most effective stress relievers. Workout gloves, exercise kits, pedometers, water bottles, food and fitness journals are all wonderful ways to promote your business. All of these promotional products are the type of things you use on the go. What can be better for a company than constant advertisement? These are things we see at the gym, in people’s cars, homes, offices and even walking down the street.
  6. Laugh a lot! How many of us have heard that laughter is the best medicine? Well it’s true and there’s a plethora of advertisers at Garrett Specialties to make you laugh no matter how old you are. Too often we underestimate the power of laughter. Stress balls are a lot of fun too!

Everything evolves and so have promotional products. Long gone are the days of just putting your company logo on pens and pads only. Specialty gifts can be used in every facet of life and stress relief is not exempt.

What better way is there to promote your business then by using stress awareness giveaways? There are all kinds of stress busting promo items and at Garrett Specialties we offer an array of them.

How have you incorporated stress fighting promos and marketing into your business?

  1. All of that is true. To key is to do it… LOL. Just like anything else that is worth while in our lives these things will yield awesome results but it does take a certain amount of discipline to to them every day. As for me, some days I do better then others… 😀

  2. These are all great tips. I tend to turn off the pc and get out of the bus and take long bus rides to get a new prospective and gather images for future use.

  3. Yes getting rid of stress is essential for all human beings. Good suggestions. Would like to add yoga and meditation:-)

  4. These are great tips Arleen. A few years ago when a lot of my work focused on engaging government I put together “less stress” packages for members of parliament. We had a minority government at the time so thought that they would end up having long uncomfortable sessions in the House, so we included amongst other things, a little pillow for their seats to make them more comfortable, stress balls in the shape of little pharmacists (the group I worked for), eye gel pads, chocolate etc. We also included tips for keeping stress down. All of it had our logo and organizational colors. It was a lighthearted approach to acknowledging the challenges they faced and letting them know that we cared.

    Months later when we were visiting for meetings we kept seeing the little pharmacists in the offices, sometimes on desks, sometimes on shelves. It kept us top of mind in a positive way. In many cases the MP used the gift as a conversation starter.

  5. Dessert spelled backwards!! Awesome, I like it.
    Stress is something we all have to come to terms with. I seem to be lucky and am rarely affected by it, only at works sometimes when people get stressed around me. But exercise is my biggest relief (and heavy music – which is kinda similar) as it gets out the frustration :>

  6. This is a really creative post. I really like how you offer great stress relief ideas and were able to tie it in to promotional products. I love exercising when I am stressed out. I actually just had this conversation with a friend the other day when I was really feeling stress and he suggested I start going on my afternoon walks again to clear my head. I had forgotten how much I liked them.

  7. I’m a big proponent of planning ahead. It helps me to have things written down so that I can stop worrying about them. On paper, out of mind is my motto.

  8. I enjoy your blog so much, Susan! So I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check out my blog post (it won’t let me post it here, but I posted it in the website option above!)

  9. I have recently discovered how much more creative and productive I am when I’m not stressed. I intentionally take 10 minutes each day to do nothing but drink a glass of tea and stare at my fish tank. This helps me switch gears from full time mommy to working from home in the afternoons while the kids nap. It is also when I come up with some of my best ideas, ironically! Something about taking that pressure off! Great advice, good article!

  10. I agree – and would add … Plan Ahead but leave room for spontaneity 🙂

  11. One of my favorite ways to reduce stress is to take a walk – to the post office, the bank, the library – the best part is the walk.

    Speaking of promotional items and stress, when I was taking care of my elderly father (he sadly is no longer alive), we received a squeeze ball from the elder care services company we used. I squeezed it a lot.
