Shashibo Health. Benefits of play. 

Everyone has a body. Everyone has a brain. So why not do your brain and body some good? Learn about the mental and physical health benefits of playing with or using Shashibo as part of your daily lifestyle.

Benefit #1

Happiness

One of the best ways to combat the blues is to get up and get moving. In fact, research has shown that people who exercise ten to feel less anxious, more positive about themselves, and have an overall better quality of life. Getting enough exercise isn't as hard as you think by simply having fun with fidget toys like Shashibo. 

Benefit #2

Focus

Everyone’s attention drifts at times, but being able to reign it in and concentrate is not only important for completing the task at hand, but for better comprehension, planning, and decision making. One way to improve your focus is to practice mindful movement, or bringing your full attention to your body, your breath, and the present moment. Mindful movement has been proven to improve focus for those who are neurotypical (those without a developmental disorder) and also those with ADHD.

"My son is highly active and rarely can stick with 1 activity or toy for more than a few minutes. He spent all morning with this. If you have a child with special needs or just needs a fidget toy, this is it. It's awesome how many different shapes and patterns you can make with this thing. Love it!"
- Danika C.

Benefit #3

Brain Boost

Your brain’s ability to change and adapt in response to stimuli is called neuroplasticity. It’s what enables you to learn, to remember things, and to develop from infancy through to adulthood. It’s also what helps you recover from a brain injury, such as a stroke. Research has shown that there are certain things we can do to exercise our neuroplasticity. These include seeking things that are new or novel, being challenged, working on skills that build, and engaging in activities with your non-dominant hand. All of our toys here at Fun in Motion aim to exercise your brain. Our toys offer infinite possibilities and challenges to master, meaning you can continue to feed your brain every time you play!

Benefit #4

Stress Relief

While a little stress can be healthy, many people experience chronic or consistent stress. This prolonged feeling of anxiety can negatively impact your immune system, your cardiovascular system, and it can lead to depression. Psychiatrist Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play, has done extensive research on how play is an important tool for alleviating stress and improving our overall well being. This is true not only for kids, in which play also helps develop key motor skills, creativity, and self-expression, but also for adults. Here at Fun in Motion we are all about play, and our range of toys ensures everyone can dive into the type of play they love most.

"This toy is everything! My son has aspergers and has not put this toy down since he received it for Christmas. Not only would i recommend this. I will be buying more also, normally my son gets bored easily with toys. However not this one, I cannot say enough about how amazing it is."
- Sandra B.

Benefit #5

Being in the Zone

Have you ever been so absorbed in what you were doing that time seemed to slow down, distractions melted away, and you were totally at one with the task at hand? Some people describe this feeling as being “in the zone”, or as psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined, being in a “flow state.” Research has proven that achieving flow state can leave us feeling happier, more motivated, and fulfilled for days to come. So, what is the best way to get into the zone? The answer is simple - do something you love! By engaging in an activity you are passionate about and good at doing, you can achieve the magic of flow state. Lucky for you, our wide range of toys has something everyone can get absorbed in to achieve this state.
