30 Ways to Create Comfort in your Daily Life!

30 Ways to Create Comfort in your Daily Life!

Comfort is defined as “a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint”.

When we were babies and sought comfort, we cried and screamed, and bottles or pacifiers made us feel better.

Growing a little older, we skinned our knees and cried, and Mom provided comfort with a bandage and kissed our booboos.

As adults, sometimes there’s no one nearby to kiss our booboos, so we must find other sources of comfort.

PsychCentral says that “Self-comfort is important for emotional well-being and can be implemented easily by developing a few skills. Comforting yourself can help you cope with stressful situations and life challenges. Practicing self-soothing and comforting techniques can also help you manage stress levels and boost your emotional health”.

Refer to the List!30 Ways to Create Comfort in your Daily Life!

A few years ago, I made a list of 50 things that created immediate joy.

When I’d get stuck in my head or in a thought loop about something unpleasant, I pulled out the list and referred to it often.

It made me feel so much better.

Getting thoughts out of our heads and onto paper or writing what were grateful for into a journal is a great way to comfort ourselves.

Listen to the Focus Your Time Podcast episode #51 about the benefits of journaling.

Having ways to provide that needed comfort, makes us able to think more clearly, and we’re less likely to feel overwhelmed by everything that’s going on around us.

Next time you’re feeling stressed, ask yourself what you can do make yourself more comfortable?

If you can’t think of anything, refer to your list!

Comfort can also be created by setting boundaries.

If you’re not sure what boundaries are or how to set them, please download the Beyond Boundaries Blueprint.  It’s free for a limited time!
