It’s true lying down on a bed with a needle in one arm may not be the most exhilarating way to spend time, but you need to go through it to donate plasma. However, your B Positive Insider found some interesting and anxiety-relieving one-handed activities to keep you entertained while you donate:
1. Play with Fidget Cubes
The adult version of Fidget Spinners! Don’t worry, we won’t judge you if you bring in the spinners. But this stress-relieving cube is meant for one hand and perfect for keeping you calm and your blood pressure leveled. Spin, roll, flip, glide, and click your way through a successful donation.
2. Read a book
Readers are leaders and knowledge is power. Bring a book on your list, a magazine, newspaper, or your kindle to delve into another world or inform yourself while sitting back. Or study for quizzes, tests, or exams, for you college kids. You’re getting paid while you do. BONUS: Kindle has a free app and offers free downloads that you can read on your smart phone using B Positive's FREE Wi-Fi!
3. Listen to music
4. Meet someone new
We have awesome donors and staff members. Chat and get to know one another!
5. Get educated
