What Does Comfort Mean to You?

By DiAnn Mills @DiAnnMills

The meaning of comfort intrigues me, especially with the stress so many people face each day. No point going into the many stressors bombarding us, or this post would be 6,000 words long. If you’re like me, we want to help others in a way that’s healthy and beneficial to them. Other times we want to be comforted when life tosses a curve ball.

Comfort means freedom from physical, mental, or spiritual pain. The concept soothes the weary, ushers in rest, and seems to lift the burden from our hearts and shoulders. Providing love and encouragement to someone who needs aid blesses them and us. Small things. Large things. Definitely a worthy gift for the recipient and giver.

Here are 20 thoughts.

  • Comfort food
  • Comfort zone
  • Comforting aid
  • Comforting embrace
  • Comforting music
  • Comforting story
  • Comforting words
  • Comfortable bed
  • Comfortable car
  • Comfortable chair
  • Comfortable evening
  • Comfortable fire
  • Comfortable friend
  • Comfortable home
  • Comfortable hotel
  • Comfortable jeans
  • Comfortable pajamas
  • Comfortable ride in the country
  • Comfortable slippers
  • Comfortable walk in the park

Here’s my challenge. While we can identify with the list above and add more ideas, how can we best offer comfort to someone else?
