Anxiety and Stress Relief Items

Postby TheHiveMind » Thu May 27, 2021 8:00 pm

There are so many different places this could go. Hopefully it may help others being here. Please change as needed.

We use a lot of different items to help relieve anxiety stress, anger and other emotions. Often we are fiddling with something and have to keep our hands busy.

We have a soft rubber crackle toy that helps with anger because of the sound it makes. Harder stress balls to squeeze. We quite like soft squishy things.
We also like playing with chains or metallic things like sequin covered books which help keep us engaged.
We have a large collection of fake fur blankets and soft toys for comfort.
We did have a fidgit cube but we broke it very quickly.

Recently we brought a adult pacifier as we do chew and suck our fingers alot and grind our teeth when angry. We heard they also help with sleep and relaxation.
I do feel silly with the idea of a pacifier. it's a baby toy and I was disturbed to read it did have sexual uses to. But I am willing to try it.

Has anyone tried any other items they found sucessfull? Or had experances with ones mentioned above?

A deep breathing (or probably sighing) and massaging the knotted muscles in my forehead. :mrgreen:
