Top 10 Things We Seek Comfort In

The Top Ten
1 Music

Playing the guitar, fingerpicking simple chords with eyes closed, is really relaxing, especially if done in that colder part of the afternoon outside. Unless it annoys your neighbours.

Maybe not everyone does, but I certainly do! Music is my Heaven and my relaxation. It's my way to be free and feel untouchable. The real world can take a break when I listen to my music.

I play the trumpet, not too good at playing it, yet. It's not too comfortable to play because you have to buzz your lips a certain way. If you're talking about me playing the piano, I'm horrible.

2 Films / TV Shows

A really funny film or a comedy box set cheers me right up and makes me forget that I needed comfort in the first place.

3 Food

Ice cream is the thing that can lift your moods instantly, if you're not allergic to milk, of course.

Comfort junk food... Burgers, chips, cakes, cookies. The more greasy and fattening, the better.

4 Doing Nothing
5 Soft Toys / Cushions

I'm forever cuddling mine. If my father's not around to give me hugs or I'm missing someone terribly, I hug my huge teddy bear and I'm instantly calmed.

Nice thought-provoking list, Britgirl! Anyway, I am 13, and I still sometimes sleep with a stuffed animal when stressed.

I like cuddling with my pillow or punching at it. Laugh out loud.

6 Reading

Some of the lives of the characters in the book you're reading make your own life seem bearable.

7 Old Photographs

I adore looking at old photos of my childhood with my family. The memories instantly lift me.

This list is spot on to what relaxes me and what comfort is to me, especially this one.

8 Family

I'm lucky I come from a large family. I'm never alone. There is always at least one family member who I can turn to, even if it's my younger brother.

9 Pets
10 Research

Distracting myself with an interesting subject. Excellent.

The Contenders
11 Love

18 Memories

It's what I live off of! Memories comfort me!

19 Writing

I agree that writing is a very excellent activity. I enjoy creating posts on this website as well.

I often take notes on things that are stressing me. Really helps.

20 Kindness
21 Baby Blanket

I have two of them, and I wouldn't get rid of them for anything!
