“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Did you know August 10 is Lazy Day? We don’t really know where this holiday came from, but we’ll take it!
The fact is, all of us deserve a day of nothing to do every once in a while. Quite a lot of research shows that many Americans do not get the rest and sleep they need, which has led to a surge in sleep disorders in the past few decades.
Therefore, “laziness” can be a good thing. Our minds need time to relax and rejuvenate. And sometimes our most important life decisions are made after taking some idle time to reflect. Not to mention, having arthritis requires a certain amount of rest to allow joints or inflamed tissue to heal.
Sure, we shouldn’t be downright slothful, but being lazy every once in a while never hurt anyone. Here are some ways to stay lazy on this special day:
Read a novel in bed
We all do a lot of reading that’s not exactly fun — email, apartment leases, taxes, billing statements, text messages from people we don’t even know… The list goes on and on.
So on this Lazy Day, why not lie back in bed and leisurely read a romance novel or legal thriller? The Contour Wedge Flip Pillow is perfect for this purpose. This soft pillow is actually two pillows connected together that can be folded for a variety of comfortable positions for sitting up in bed, lying on your stomach, or propping up your feet.
Take a nap
Perhaps the most obvious thing you can do on Lazy Day is take a nap. Napping is actually a healthy daily routine for many people, assuming their nighttime sleep patterns are normal.
For daytime napping or even nighttime sleeping, you may consider the Contour Side Sleeper L Pillow. The benefit of this large, very cushioned pillow is its L shape, which allows the user to sleep on their side more easily by providing head and arm support, all in one pillow.
Stay comfortable wherever you are
No matter what you do on Lazy Day, you should be comfortable while doing it! With the Contour Twist Pillow, you can stay comfortable whenever and wherever. This unique pillow twists and turns into a variety of shapes to support your head, neck and shoulders in many different positions
Although you probably cannot afford to be lazy every day, Lazy Day is as good a day as any to find the best way to get comfortable in spite of arthritis.
