According to legend, Guatemalan children tell one worry to each doll, then place them under their pillow when they go to bed. In the morning the dolls have taken their worries away.
I don't really know how or why these dolls work, but what I can say is that I discovered and bought my first Guatemalan worry doll decades ago, and to my surprise I had the best nights sleep I'd ever had. I use mine till they literally fall apart on me.
I would recommend that if you use yours as frequently as I do, and they start to dull (or not work as well) do as I do and simply remove your worry doll from under your pillow and hang it out on the clothes line through the day to cleanse it of all your worries. Then just start fresh, telling it your worries again and replace it back under your pillow.
I adore these dolls and hope you find them as helpful as I do!
