Thumb stones, also known as worry stones, are our top recommendation for anxiety relief. The calming properties of these healing stones have been used for thousands of years; by the Tibetans for chanting mantras, by the Irish to "free their life from all worries and bring good luck", by Indigenous peoples from generation to generation, and almost every culture across the globe.
Worry thumb stones are believed to have been created by the monks. They held a stone as they meditated and only achieved true enlightenment once the stone became indented.
Using thumb stones for anxiety relief is a great option. They work through a process called acupressure. You rub the worry stone with your thumb, fingers or in your palms and can stimulate different nerve endings that promote calmness, release endorphins, and have an overall euphoric effect.
You can also use thumb stones to distract the brain away from your anxious feelings, and they can double as a fidget tool as needed.
