A comfortable environment is important to one’s overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. This involves being in a physical space that allows you to achieve a state of physical and emotional ease, a feeling of safety and contentment, and ability to rest, or focus. Often, comfort can achieved be through privacy control, temperature control, external and internal light control, furnishing, bedding, and noise control.

Warning Signs

Indicators of warning include:

  • Inability to achieve contentment, or feel rejuvenated and refreshed
  • Constant stress
  • Impacts on work, relationships, or personal well-being
  • Feeling “uncomfortable”


A comfortable environment allows for rejuvenation, innovation, creativity, and safe and healthy experiences. When our environment is uncomfortable, it can lead to a decline in health, work and relationships. Ask yourself: Do I know what makes me comfortable? What type of lighting do I enjoy? Do I have privacy? Do I feel safe? Do I like my furnishings? Are there smells or sounds that I enjoy that make me feel at ease? 




  • Explore lighting, sounds, smells, furnishings, furniture arrangements, and security measures that make you feel comfortable
  • Clear the energy of the environment with sage or a blessing


Making your environment comfortable is an important part of overall health and well being. In some cases, you may need assistance. 




If you are unsafe in your home, or have active thoughts or intentions of harming yourself or others: 

  • Dial 911; or
  • Go the nearest hospital emergency room
