Even as adults, we have comfort objects
I very quite likely transitioned from my blankie to my cat, Sunshine. She was always there for me. Is that why I have such a need to have a pet? Has it become ingrained that cuddling with a pet is my method to soothe myself down to neutral?
I am intrigued with the insight that adults use comfort objects all the time but just aren't completely aware of it. Our purses? A necklace? Ring? And for goodness sake, now our phones!
Take a moment to think about this. Do you feel wound up? Do you feel you take time to unwind yourself? Do you think you have any objects - or even rituals - that you go to perhaps because they help to unwind you, even if just a little bit? What if you did take time to unwind yourself every day?
