How to get that comfy Christmas feeling?
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Ah, is it really? How could we spend a stress-free Christmas this year? Why is Christmas the most stressful time of year? Well, is it really even? Or is it just in our heads? This is the Matrix and you can now decide if you want to kick off December with a chill pill and slide into a comfy Christmas or if you want to pick a pill full of Christmas stress (we don’t recommend this one).
So, you decided to take a chill pill with us and let go of the harmful stress. We have perfect solutions for that: COMFY TIPS! And we are not just talking about getting comfy on your home sofa, but wearing a trendy pyjama suit when attending a pre-Christmas party. Oh, and a matching face mask of course! Sit down and find out how to maximize your comfy level with us.
TIP 1: Pyjamas at home, pyjamas at the city
The pyjama trend is still going strong! After you have woken up you might feel that you just don’t want to put your jeans on for the workday. Good news! You don’t have to. Take that relaxed feeling with you when you leave your home. Some are already arguing that sleepwear is replacing sports luxe for all-day comfort dressing.
How to not look like you just forgot to change clothes? Layer your silk slip-over T-shirts and turtlenecks for a dressed-down daytime look. If you decide to wear just the pyjama top, style it as you would a silk shirt: roll up the sleeves and team with jeans or a leather skirt.
TIP 2: Massages from the loved ones
Why don’t you ask your friend to come over? Oh, she is busy? Maybe you can change her mind by promising a massage night! A good relaxation massage relieves stress and muscle tension and will leave you oozing with a sense of wellbeing. Order a pizza, watch a good movie, and give each other a good neck massage while arguing who is the real hottie in the cult movie “10 things I hate about you”. And if your friend is REALLY busy, you can try a massaging neck pillow. It’s our new best friend at the Zadaa office and the perfect Christmas gift idea for any introvert.
TIP 3: Cats, dogs, and other pets
It’s not a coincidence that we use this many animal pictures in one blog post. Several studies show that touch can help heal people and boost their immune system. Most dogs, cats, and other furry animals are petted, or touched, often, but also birds and even reptiles often enjoy physical touch. Some pets will return touch to their owners in the form of a lick or by snuggling up tightly next to them. What’s more relaxing? Forget your Christmas baking plans and just buy the cake. It’s time to give some love to your furry friend! If you don’t have one, we can maybe borrow one of our office dogs.
TIP 4: Blankets, socks and everything else warming
Yes, Christmas is stressing us out. No, it doesn’t have to be like that. Drop everything! Christmas comes anyway, you don’t have to be 100% prepared. Just make sure you have enough soft things around you. A pile of pillows on your sofa and a huge knitted blanket is a good start. Level up by wearing a pair of wool socks or super cute slippers. Turn off your phone and read your favorite book from cover to cover.
