My name is Tyler Baruch; Founder of Huna Wristbands. I came up with the idea for this product when I was experiencing anxiety and panic attacks due to high levels of stress stemming from my job and also from a new long distance relationship. I had never experienced anxiety like this before. I was waking up in the middle of the night with panic attacks nearly every night and had anxiety from my relationship a few times a week. With my hair on the verge of falling out and relationship on thin ice, something needed to change. I searched for solutions online to avoid having to go to therapy or use prescription drugs. I tried some home remedies like lavender oil and other techniques but none seemed to work for me. That's when I came up with the idea for the Huna Wristband. Each time I would feel the anxiety starting or my stress levels rising I would simply snap the wristband a few times and take a deep breath. The snap from the band actually pulls your mind away from the emotional state while the deep breath gives you a moment to realize why you shouldn't be feeling anxious or why you are trying to change. Over time the conscious effort you make to direct your attention away from the issue, will strengthen your mind, and allow you to manage and or overcome your problem. After a few months of using the band consistently I noticed that I was no longer waking up in the night and that I felt much more secure with my relationship. I have no need to snap the band anymore because I have completely overcome the anxiety but I still wear it, as it serves as a subtle yet stylish reminder. It has been over a year since my last anxiety attack and I can honestly say the Huna band truly saved my relationship and gave me the mental strength to overcome my anxiety.
