Top Ten Things We Seek Comfort In

The Top Ten

1 Music

Play 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! - Curti2594

Music is great whatever emotion you're feeling. If I'm feeling in need of love or comfort, Bing Crosby's voice is like balm to my wounded soul. - Britgirl

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. - funnyuser

2 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. - Britgirl

Nice thought provoking list britgirl! Anyways, I am 13, and I still sometimes sleep with a stuffs animal when stressed. - Turkeyasylum

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

I love my stuffed animals!

3 Films / Sitcoms

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

Funny and action films are the best!

4 Food

Ice cream is the thing that can lift your moods instantly. If you're not allergic to milk, of course. - PsychopathicSissyPants2

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

It is bad to eat when you're depressed because you gain extra weight. But admit it, we do it anyway.

5 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. - Britgirl

I often choose to be with my dad to make me feel better. ;)

6 Old Photographs

I love my photos!

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

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

"Long ago, it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you. …" - PetSounds

7 Doing Nothing

My favorite activity!

It is only comforting if you're exhausted.

8 Writing

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

If I just want to forget who I am for an hour, creating characters and new situations to put them in is a real pick-me-up - Britgirl

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

I don't always write, but when I do, I make up fun stories!

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

Oh, man...what happened last night? - SoongeBill
