‘Focus on softness: squeeze your hand, manipulate with your fingers, release tension and relax your body. Your body is ready to face the outside world again. ‘
When human beings were born as babies, our bodies were the most malleable. Our bodies react to invisible outside forces, which often cause our bodies to tense up and physically clench. To deal with these external pressures, we need another malleability that can be an extension of our bodies: an earplug, an everyday object which is soft, small and colorful, that is willing to adapt to our bodies and block external influences. By scaling up the malleable property of an earplug to a hand-held size, this earplug shaped anti-stress ball changes the relationship between our bodies and outside pressure from passive blocking to active release.
