List down are the top 5 relaxing tech and non-tech gadgets help to cool down like Himalayas.
Tech Gadgets: #1. Fidget Cube
The Fidget Cube is a small hand-held device (known as a fidget toy or stimulator toy) designed by Matthew and Mark Mclachlan, brothers and co-founders of the Colorado-based design studio Antsy Labs.
The faces of the fidget cube carry one or two features intended to stimulate different senses. The features include buttons, discs, balls and cogs, switches, joysticks, and dents. The faces are named based on their intended use.
Click: One face has five buttons, with one button at each corner and one in the middle of the face, like the “5” side of a standard die. Two of the buttons are silent, two are loud, audible clicks, and the middle button has a quieter click.
Spin: A rotatable disc with a small indentation to help to spin the dial. The disc makes a subtle clicking sound as it spins.
Roll: Contains captive metal ball (similar to a trackball) and three ridged cogs (similar to a combination lock), all of which can be rotated. The ball also produces an audible click if pressed down upon.
Flip: A colored rocker switch. On some fidget cubes when the switch is moved quickly it makes a sound whereas if it moved slowly it does not make a sound.
Glide: A joystick similar to those found on some gamepads.
Breathe: A (usually oval) indentation approximately 2–3 mm deep. Intended to be used similarly to a worry stone.

#2. Fidget Spinner
Fidgeting is the act of moving about restlessly, often as a result of nervousness, impatience, or boredom. ADHD experts have suggested that fidgeting is associated with the level of stimulation we receive. If something is not able to hold our attention, fidgeting increases attentiveness by distracting the part of the brain that is ‘bored’ in order to allow the other parts to focus. Fidgeting is also a natural response that helps manage high levels of stress.
Fidget spinners are marketed as a way to help relieve stress and cope with anxiety and ADHD.
