WHAT IS A STRESS STRAW?
These bamboo straw necklaces are not just pieces of beautiful sustainable jewelry, but also can be used as a practical and useful wellness tool. Stress Straws are a happiness hack that use simple science to help provide all-natural, drug-free and affordable stress relief for everyone.
HOW DO STRESS STRAWS WORK?
Stress Straws help reduce stress and anxiety by extending your exhalation to instantly overcome the unconscious biological “fight or flight” response constantly engaged by today’s endless barrage of news, social media and politics. Slowing and extending your breath using a Stress Straw may have the effect of stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system to help create the feelings of calm and relaxation. When you take intentional and proper long breaths, your body signals the analytical brain that there must not be any real danger and you can relax.
WHAT DO STRESS STRAWS DO?
Most of us are too busy or distracted to even notice our shallow breathing habits, especially when nervous, anxious or scared. Stress Straws are that reminder that teaches and forces you to breathe slower and longer by restricting your exhale.
