You don't need me to tell you why you could use some comfort right about now. Just pick your favorite thing to worry about. Some of our comforting activities are too fleeting to make a real difference. Others can get boring after a while. (I think we've all discovered that there actually is a limit to how much time we can spend curled up on the couch watching television.) But there are comforting things that we can weave into our lives in a way that keeps the comfort coming.
