What are your comfort habits? Comfort habits? You may think what is this chic talking about. Well we all know we have "comfort food" (mine is potato soup, & chocolate pie, my husband likes banana pudding). Well I was reading an article tonight while I was trying to clean out the magazine rack, an interesting page in People magazine from the Dec. 29 2008 issue caught my eye. The 2 page lay out was titled "What's Next? Reasons to look forward to 2009".
It listed several celebs and had them guess at what trends they thought we would see happen in 2009 with the economy the way it is. Martha Stewart thought " people will be interested in cooking and entertaining at home, looking for ways to live richly without spending alot." Dr. Oz said "What's really happening is we're simplifying life. Less financial freedom will result in things like fewer nannies, so you'll spend time with your kids, which will lead to more connected families."
What do you think???? What trend or habit do you find yourself doing when you hear the news regarding our economy???
I find myself nesting... thinking of ways to make my home more comfortable, and doing crafts from the stores of supplies I have in drawers and cupboards. It makes me feel productive to use the things I already have. For example, after watching Desperate Housewives the last 2 weeks and loving the aprons that Bree has been wearing. I have pulled out my fabric and starting working on attempting to make some cute aprons. I will post pics later of completed projects.
So after thinking about what activities I find myself increasingly doing after hearing too much of the evening news, I have decided to coin this activity "comfort habits". I know after a death in the family I have the greatest desire to clean my house from top to bottom (yep, that includes dusting the baseboards) I have learned that this makes me feel like I have some control of my life as I gain control of at least the area around me. I guess if you can have "comfort food" you can also have "comfort habits". I would love to hear from you.
