Lets face it, anxiety can take a hold of us in our daily lives. We might find our legs bouncing up and down when we are sitting through an important lecture or our hands scratching our arms, or the jitters when we are constantly shifting in our seats. Shaking, along with panic and uneasiness are all feelings of anxiety and while there are multiple other symptoms including chest pains, dizziness, and shortness of breath; these two symptoms seem to be the most common.
While science says that anxiety can be good for us and that it is your body's fight or flight response, it gets to a point where excessive shaking can be a problem. The problem is not the fact that you are shaking, but that you cannot control your shaking. While there are multiple ways that teach you how to curb your anxiety, the method that I am about to share is quite underrated because you don't really see this tip in many self-help websites. This tip is quite different because it does not require the use of drugs, mood stabilizers, exercise, or a change of diet. This tip requires the use of products whose goal is to relisseve stress and anxiety.
1. Stress Cube
This popular cube has received a lot of attention in the past year. Originally started as a crowd-funded project from Kickstarter, this cube has gained a lot of attention and has quickly become Kickstarter's 10th most crowdfunded product ever. Although there are knockoff products that have hit the shelves and are being sold on Amazon and other eCommerce sites, the official Fidget Cube that was conceived by Antsy Labs has not been released yet. With an expected release date scheduled soon, the knockoff products are a cheaper alternative compared to the official unreleased product made by Antsyy Labs which is expected to cost a moderate price of $25.

2. Dammit Doll
More of a stress relief toy, these wacky dolls are perfect for releasing your anger and stress. The instructions that are sewn on its torso is pretty self explanatory: just whack it against the wall and yell, "DAMMIT." Pretty comical and they comes in a variety of colors.

This magnet toy is pretty amazing when it comes to molding and shifting it tinto different shapes and sizes. Perfect for taking your mind off of daunting or stressful moments. Please keep out of reach from children for the small magnetic orbs are labelled as a choking hazard.
This toy is quickly becoming a fad. People use these to swing around their hands and palms, which is quite entertaining and captivating. However, there tricks take a lot of practice. Begleri are Greek toys that are made when two heavy objects are tied at the ends of a short string.
