  • Looking for something to drown out the stress-inducing sounds of a noisy office or home? Check out the SOUND+SLEEP system by ASTI! As the name suggests, this device can be used as a sleep aid, but its soundscapes can also be used in a relaxing, stress-relieving context.

  • The Aduki ni Light by Mathmos is one of the most relaxing light gadgets I've ever seen. When turned off, it looks like a hand-sized teardrop of mercury or hematite (which is cool enough as-is). When turned on, however, it either shines a color of your choosing or cycles through the entire color spectrum. Definitely recommended if you're seeking visual relaxation methods!

  • Bucky Balls and Bucky Cubes are both great standbys to have sitting around your desk within reach. They're tiny magnetic balls/cubes that allow you to form really awesome shapes. Needless to say, they keep you focused on something completely unrelated to stress the whole time you're fidgeting with them. I especially recommend these for those of you who have to be on the phone fairly often at work. If you're like me and you doodle on a notepad or something similar, give one of these a try sometime!

    That head massager looks like something out of a horror movie. No way I'm putting my cranium anywhere near that thing.

    Doc has a lot of stress and so needs quite a bit of stress release. I'm putting in my order for all ten of these devices and cancelling my prescription for Xanax.
