In today’s blog post, we are going to talk about an important topic – mental health. Sometimes life can be overwhelming, and it’s crucial to learn effective coping mechanisms to help us navigate through challenging times.

These small, squishy balls can be squeezed and manipulated, allowing us to release tension and stress!
