Pinch Me Therapy Dough (with giveaway)

This was brought to you by AdvertiseWithBloggers.com

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. 

The plastic container keeps your Pinch Me therapy dough fresh.

My husband is off work today, and with no prior warning, tells me he needs my Windows computer. It has a program he can't access on his Mac. Cub Scout patches have to be sewn on before 6pm; two writing deadlines are looming (both need a computer); hubby's wondering where his big breakfast is; and my school advisor is phoning, upset that I can't make it to Nebraska during the school year (after his dates and mine for availability already did not match up in the summer). I need to get that dissertation presented live, and I'm worried. A lot of time has passed and every semester costs me money, in tuition, to stay actively enrolled (ugh!). It's already noon and I've got a ton of things to do, but I feel derailed and nothing has been done at all. You all know this day, well not this day exactly, but I'm sure you know of one that has produced similar feelings for you.

Life can get a little stressful, most definitely when you're working, but also when you're a stay-at-home/work-from-home-mom. One way to naturally decompress and relax is for me to sit down and knead my Pinch Me Therapy Dough. The pliable, subtly scented dough cleverly redirects my attention as I knead through it for a minute or two and physically feel the stress around me start to melt away. It may not seem like much, but at times it can be exactly what I need... just a little re-balance and restoration to help me be able to aptly re-focus...to bring me back to my center.

Pinch Me Dough comes in six pleasing fragrance selections

The Pinch Me dough comes in thoughtful scents, carefully designed to redirect your thinking to something pleasant. I selected the Tropics dough, and it's light spa-quality oils produce a coconut-y aroma that really does make me feel better instantly.   Tropics is not the only scent offered though, Pinch Me actually has a variety of six to choose from: Tropics, Beach, Ocean, Earth, Spa, and 'For Men.'

Proceeds Help Soliders

As an added bonus, every Pinch Me Therapy Dough purchased buys 1/2 day of stress management training for soldiers via the BootStrap USA program.


It's a Great Gift Idea!

I'm thinking this dough would be a great gift idea too for everyone from the secretary, to the teacher, to the principal, to the CEO. Who couldn't use a little time-out to relax and refresh with this aromatic, pliable stress-relieving dough?

You can learn more about Pinch Me Therapy Dough by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

One lucky winner gets to choose a Pinch Me Therapy Dough of choice to call their own. US entrants only.

I have never heard of this. What a neat idea! My life is full of stress. I might have to look for this product.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

What does 'For Me' smell like? (Just curious!)

mail4rosey said...

For Men (as taken from their website): The rugged aroma of rich leather captured in a truly masculine scent. It evokes a subtle machismo without all the swagger. FOR MEN: We think it's absolutely strapping.

Masshole Mommy said...

I might get some of this for Chris for Christmas. It sounds like a really cool idea. And I especially love that the proceeds go to help the Soliders since Chris is a vet!

Courtney Dyson said...

alissa apel said...

I learned that the more you squeeze, the better you feel.

Why is it that husband's come in and demand things? My husband has a show coming up, and signed up for this thing called Artist Inc. Does he have time for Artist Inc? No. He signed up for it anyhow. Now he's gone on Tuesday nights - all night. I don't know how he'll get his stuff done.

The last time this happened he needed something opened, changed, and saved for his computer. I did it. He didn't have all the files first. I called him to let him know. He was grinding metal, so he was annoyed. He sent me the file. I got the email, but it contained no attachments. I called him again. He was even more annoyed. It was the wrong file. I called him again. He was even more annoyed. He acted like I wasn't getting his job done. I was helping him, but he wasn't getting me the right files.

The psychological effects of color have been studied extensively as they relate to body and mind. Pinch Me's color palette was professionally designed to calm with each subtle hue.

I could use something like this. Sometimes I deal with stress by eating...a lot. I would rather have my hands kneading some Pinch-me-therapy dough rather than stuffing my face. :)

Ashley B. said...

What I learned new is how colors can coincide with the reduction of stress. I never realized this until I visited the Pinch Me Dough website! It's a very cool fact.

This sounds like such a cool product. I think my college age daughter would love it.

Debi Gerhart said...

Looks like a great product. I need to look into it for my desk.

There are six tranquil formulas that the average person can choose from when ordering! I would love to take this with me when I get super stressed by my aunt in law. lol

Farrah said...

I learned that there are six formulas to chose from. I also have to say that I love this is a holistic way to relieve stress. Lately, we've moved, my husband is starting a new job, we've bought a new car, and of course...the kids! I definitely need some stress relief, so I'd love to win this giveaway!

Erika Awakening said...

It's great to have some kind of ritual to turn to for releasing stress. I love yin yoga, I can see how this could serve some of the same functions ...

Great scents and those scents should trigger something in the brain to help with stress. Love the concept of this.

Lois Alter Mark said...

This is such a great idea. I can see how it would be totally relaxing.
