Plushies are soft, cuddly plush toys that come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They come in every colour and pattern imaginable, making them appropriate for any taste or style. Here we go through five reasons why you need a plushie!
- Forever your companion
- Feel at Peace
- Stay warm during cold nights
- Help with back pain
- From beginning to end
1. Forever your companion
Plushies always seem to be in a good mood, no matter what the weather or situation is! When you get home, no matter how bad your day has been, you'll always be greeted by a happy fluffy face. When things go wrong, you can melt your face into this plushie. How do I know you'll follow through? Let's just say I've been doing it for years and it's the best feeling in the world.
2. Feel at peace
Did you know that nine out of ten people say a spontaneous hug or any kind of affection boosts their self-esteem and sense of worth? Comfort hugs cause the release of the feel-good hormones oxytocin and serotonin in the brain. But there's more going on than hormones that make us feel warm and loving. Many studies have shown that having a comfort object, such as a plushie, improves emotional well-being, coping skills, resilience, self-esteem, and sleep because a plushie induces a self-soothing feeling.
3. Stay warm during cold nights
Have you ever hugged a cuddly plushie when the evenings are freezing in the winter or autumn? If you said no, you're definitely missing out. Hugging someone for too long causes discomfort, hair in your face, and you begin to burn like fiery charcoal. If you don't have anyone to hug in the moment, a plushie is the perfect companion to keep you warm.
4. Help with back pain
People have been sleeping with plushies since childhood, and body pillows are the next step in that evolution. Most of us sleep on our sides, which leads to hip and lower back pain in the long run. A body pillow supports your spine while you sleep, alleviating back pain and neck tension. Plushies come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses to suit your preferences. We would highly recommend getting a long or large plush to wrap your body around.
5. From beginning to end
Plushies, when properly cared for, can last a lifetime and hold memories as you grow and explore the world. Because of the relationship they form with their plushies, many children become more attached to them than to any other toy. Grab a plushie for yourself or a loved one, or even a gift for your niece or nephew, and watch them grow up with your thoughtful gift.
