Calm Cuffs: A Kickstarter and a Giveaway

I received an email from Elizabeth Paulson with news of an innovative new product. Here’s the scoop, and thank you, Elizabeth!

Our mother is a saint.

Except when she gets too hot. It’s always been like this. This sweet woman would be lovingly sewing our Halloween costumes one day, and then the next, she’s hurling a spatula across the kitchen because the oven is on and the pasta is boiling and it’s too hot. Guess what menopause was like in our house? Yeah. Bad.

One day, instead of fleeing, we raced to the freezer and put a bag of frozen peas on our mom’s wrists. It was as if we’d switched the “off” button. She felt better instantly and was back to her old self in seconds. “Someone should invent ice packs for wrists,” she said.

So we did!

Calm Cuffs are perfect for quick relief from discomfort related to:

  • Hot flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Overheating

Based on the science of using temperature to change your emotional state and body chemistry, Calm Cuffs are cooling wrist bands to help you calm down and reach your zen place, even when life gets heated.

This product may just help your family as much as it’s helped ours. Our mom is now one cool woman, we’ve been enjoying peace from life’s stressers, and we hope you’ll help make our dream of Calm Cuffs a reality by supporting us on Kickstarter. This is the link to our Kickstarter campaign:

Giveaway: We’re giving away a pair of Calm Cuffs to a Friend for the Ride reader. For a chance to win, please enter a comment by November 1. We’ll ship the Calm Cuffs once we go into production.

  1. I’m in! It seems like that hot flash switch never turns off. I am really, really, really trying to deal and accept that this is a part of a woman’s life but gosh it is difficult.


  2. Wow, the wrist cuffs sound fascinating! It seems like the hot flashes and bouts of irritability never go away completely – even after years! Thanks for the chance to win a pair!


  3. I’m so excited about the Calm Cuffs! These look perfect for helping with so many symptoms I’ve been navigating. It’s been pretty overwhelming lately. Thanks for sharing this info and for all the great resources on your blog.
