Note: This giveaway is now over. Thanks to everyone who entered!
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I started a new job a few months ago, and that – while I LOVE it – it has been very demanding. Fun, but fast-paced. Super interesting, but stressful. You get the idea.
Currently, my days are passing in a WHIRLWIND. Often, I will look up and realize that it’s 3 pm – and I haven’t left my desk for hours. (I know, this is so bad!)
Obviously, this is terrible for my body. My goal over the next few weeks is to be much more conscious of going to the gym at lunchtime, but in the meantime, I am looking for little ways that I can relax and de-stress while I’m at work.
Incredibly, in a moment of perfect timing, T Spheres reached out to see if I wanted to review their portable massage and aromatherapy spheres. Honestly, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. T Spheres are aromatherapy-infused massage balls that you can roll over different pressure points on your body to alleviate stress and release tension.
T Spheres come in four different scents: Inner Beauty (rose geranium), Peace and Quiet (lavender), Pep-Up-Mint (peppermint), and Perk Up (peppermint and grapefruit). I chose Peace and Quiet, because I could definitely use some of that in my life right about now.
The T Spheres arrived packed in a little burlap sack.
They smell amazing because they’re infused with aromatherapy oil; a small spritz bottle of the oil is also included. You can refresh the scent on the T Spheres as needed (every few weeks).
The spheres are about the size of a large rubber ball. In fact, if you’re a parent: beware. My 9-year-old son ended up swiping one of them to use in a marble maze he was building.
I brought the T Spheres to work. Verdict: I LOVE THEM.
I’ve been placing them in a bowl of water and putting them in the microwave for a couple of minutes. When I take them out and roll them along my neck and shoulders, it feels like a hot stone massage, right at my desk. If you’re someone who finds cold things refreshing, you could also pop them into the freezer for 30 minutes – the cold technique would be fantastic for headaches or sinus pain.
I’m also planning on using these on long flights to massage the tightness out of my muscles as I sit in my seat. I love how packable and portable they are.
If you’d like to order your own set, check them out here.
If you are wishing you had a set right about now, you’re in luck, because T Spheres would like to give away a set to a Points and Pixie Dust reader!
Just leave a comment below and tell us: how do you find ways to relax or reinvigorate at the office or on long flights?
Please also let us know which scent you would prefer – Inner Beauty (rose geranium), Peace and Quiet (lavender), Pep-Up-Mint (peppermint), or Perk Up (peppermint and grapefruit).
