Worry Stone

Worry stones are smooth, polished rocks used for relaxation or anxiety relief to help one feel grounded. The stone is meant to be kept in one’s pocket. The physical act of massaging a worry stone for several minutes is proven to provide therapeutic & psychological benefits that help soothe your nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety, and help clear your mind so you can focus and think clearly.
 On one side of the drawstring bag write an inspirational or calming word. Examples: hope, love, grow, breathe, dream, courage, wonder. Tip: Place a piece of paper or cardboard in the bag before decorating to prevent the marker from bleeding through.
