Does anyone know where I can get free handouts for a stress management fair?
something like stress balls or information of the sort? any help would be greatly appreciated.
I would go online and see what you can find- there is tons on the web!! Just be sure to cite your source. I'm doing an internship in the ICU, and chose to do a project there on aromatherapy. I found so much great stuff online. I also remembered that when I went to new employee orientation at the hospital a couple months ago, they gave us these cute little bottles of aromatherapy lotion for stress relief. I called HR and was able to get a bunch of them to go with my project.
There may be a local business in your area that might donate stress balls- a lot of time they have their logo on them, for the advertising. Good luck!

yeah thats what I thought if I get told one more time "NO we don't do that" I am going to puke! lol one guy even told me "THATS A NO!" lol anyway I have tried everything hopefully the AHA can help me tomorrow! Thanks for your suggestion!
Contact drug reps. We jsut finished a huge health fair. My dbf was in charge of the group that was covering glaucome...He managed to get a load of donations from drug reps.
Another group did something on stress relief. They mentioned color therapy, and had strips of blue felt. It was cool to sit there and play and pull with it, but the actual purpose was to look at the color and relax.

You can also draft all your buddies to help you make your own stress balls. Fill balloons with cornstarch. It's not free, but it's cheap.
Good luck with your project.

I understand how, as nurses, we were taught to "manage, and relief, pain". Therefore to "manage, and relief, stress" seems like the next logical step, doesn't it. After all, us compassionate people want to help others, by all positive means possible, to succeed happily.
Already you know about "managing time, money and other valuable resources". And experiencing the feeling of stress can be a valuable resource also, like if a critter were to attempt outdistancing us, and we rev-up our adrenalin-motor so we can safely escape danger, possible harm, and pain or worse. Then, after safety is assured once again - our mind naturally tends once *you allow it* to return to a state of equilibrium, and internal peace.
Iow, including context-dependancy, already we have the power within us for 'simply letting go, of stress', at the time of our choosing as we have proven to ourselves before. I mean, why "stress management" when there's no need for it. Quite a self-empowering awareness, when you allow yourself to think of it in this process, eh?
While balls, drugs, felt, fragrances, etc. are nice too, should you forget to take any of these driving to work, or school, or church, or where-ever, then what. Will you need to wait until you can get back home? That could get inconvenient in a hurry.
What if there are methods, that you can be taught in several sessions, allowing you easily and quickly accessing your own internal resources, including peacefulness, or any other constructive helpful internal state-of-mind as you choose. Would that interest you, Lisa?
In fact, in select contexts we have been guiding people for over a decade in similar advantages
Now, allow me to make you aware as well, that once you begin to start playing around with these latter methods, you will notice increasingly how you are getting brighter, living happier, staying healthier, and enjoying such wanton fun - that other nurses, around you, will start asking questions like "What do you know that I don't, yet?" ... And then, you can share this good news with them also. ah yes Lisa, imagine more fun possibilities :balloons:...
what ????? lol :chuckle
ooops, this got sent twice - please accept my sincere apology. Anyway,
my offer to explain further, remains active :)
Are you asking, in response to my brief Introduction ? If so, what part of it, did you not understand as well as you might like ?, or what part of it did I not explain, that I can now explain better ?
