Anxiety in the modern world is becoming increasingly common affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. While there are various strategies and therapies to manage anxiety, sheepskin has gained attention for its potential to provide comfort and relief. The 100% Australian sheepskin FLATOUTbears have emerged as a cuddly and soothing companion that offers both physical comfort and emotional support.

Sheepskin is known to have qualities that help alleviate anxiety and promote a sense of calm.

Just read this message from Angela:

I absolutely love these bears. Where to start… I know they are marketed for babies and children, but I am a 46 year old woman and I have two! Everyone loves a teddy bear right. Thing is I get anxious sometimes when I’m out and about, and my little baby bear, because he’s flat, fits in my handbag. He’s like a comfort blanket, and it makes me feel better knowing he’s there. We all have a little child inside us still that just wants comfort sometimes. They are so so soft and exceptionally well made and cute. This company is amazing and I love that it’s family run. Can’t recommend them enough. ❤️❤️❤️

At first glance, the FLATOUTbear might just appear as a flat teddy but it is designed with intention. It’s size and shape and flatness, make it easy to hold, cuddle, carry which provides a focal point during moments of anxiety. When anxiety strikes, focusing on a comforting object, like our flat bear, can help redirect racing thoughts and provide a sense of stability.

The soft and plush texture of the flat bears provides a sensory experience that has been likened to a warm hug. It has been found that sheepskin’s tactile appeal can simulate the sensation of physical touch, thus triggering the release of oxytocin and effectively calming the nervous system.

The other side of sheepskin that should not be underestimated is the connection between the sheepskin bear and nature. In this crazy world we live in dominated by tech and screens, the sheepskin of the bear provides a grounding sensation – a link to the outdoors and nature.

The sheepskin of the FLATOUTbear serves as a reminder that a little bit of softness and simplicity can go a long way in soothing the mind and brings much-needed calm.
