Creature Comforts

Dr. Stephen Trudeau - La Plage Wellness

The reference to creature comforts pertains to simple familiar items or details which put a smile on our face or serve a specific purpose e.g. a favorite coffee cup at the office. This seems to be an unconscious self-care action that we humans engage with varying degrees of success. It is good to not simply endure the situations in life but to find pleasure in your state of being. Work is also your space. Traveling takes time so bring a snack, deck of cards, or rewarding book. Even the types of aroma can enhance your mood such as perfume, candles, incense, or diffusers.

There are times in our lives where this habit of acquiring things and nesting can be a bit much and begin to feel cluttered. Spring is the time of renewal and a perfect time to clean out and simplify our lives with a good purging of stuff. Take the time to evaluate the items you have gathered around you and decide if it is truly a simple pleasure/creature comfort or is it an unnecessary attachment. Letting go can be liberating and lighten the load physically, mentally, emotionally, and sometimes spiritually.
