The Coping Kete

No. 41: Snug

This week, to attain, maintain or regain my sense of wellbeing…

I will spend 10 minutes each evening, somewhere comfortable, wrapped in a feather duvet or other really snuggly blanket. I might turn the lights down or light some candles and play some quiet, relaxing music or enjoy some silence. This is ten minutes for comfort – I will focus my mind on all of the sensations of comfort in this moment by observing and describing them to myself. When my mind wanders onto concerns of the day, I will gently turn my thoughts back to the sensation of being enfolded in the warm blanket and each of the places where it touches my body.  No matter how I have been feeling, I will allow myself this time of calm and comfort.

By giving myself regular, unconditional comfort, I will create a more nurturing relationship with myself.

Once I am comfortable with giving myself regular moments of comfort, I will add it to my Personal Coping Kete as a strategy for self-soothing when things get tough.
