Have you ever heard of beta blockers?? In case you haven't here's the low down...

"Beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenergic blocking agents, are medications that reduce your blood pressure. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of the hormone epinephrine, also known as adrenaline. When you take beta blockers, your heart beats more slowly and with less force, thereby reducing blood pressure."-source

Ok now that we're clear on that, these little wrist devices do the same thing, just without pills! And I'm down with anything that keeps us from taking unnecessary drugs.

These little guys work by sending vibration pulses through your wrists, which effects your brain's fight or flight response, which is essentially that deep feeling of stress and anxiety... for me it's the one I get at the dentist, I'd love to try these out tomorrow when I have to go for a visit!

While stress is usually a healthy response to a dangerous situation, I could see these as being hugely helpful for someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, or even for kids with autism.

Super win in my book!
