How to Feel Good

You deserve to feel good.  It’s a simple idea really, but one that can get overlooked in the midst of everyday life.

The Pajama Company was founded because we love to make people happy and help them feel good. Of course, we think one of the best feel-good pleasures in life is relaxing in your favorite jammies.

But, there are lots of other ways to add more “feel-good” to your life.  So today we’re sharing some of our favorites…

1. Have designated “Me” time.  Put some time aside just for you where you can do just what you want to do.  Maybe it’s time to relax, go out and meet up with friends, or get a massage.  The idea is that it’s all about you.

2. Take walks.  Whether you work in an office or from home, movement during the day can really help you to feel refreshed.

3. Treat yourself to something beautiful.  A bunch of fresh flowers.  A beautiful new bracelet.  A gorgeous journal.  Surrounding yourself with beautiful and meaningful things will go a long way in boosting your good mood!

4. Engage in regular random acts of kindness. Here are 10 easy ways we’ve shared to spread kindness.

5. Take a nap.  Feeling sluggish or groggy?  Even just a 15 minute power nap can work wonders!

6. Wear something you love.  Nothing helps you to feel good than wearing something you love and that you know you look good in. Make a point to dress in your favorites each day!

Now over to you…what do you add to your everyday life to feel good?

Pajama Spotlight: bSoft

We love our line of bSoft women’s pajamas because of their versatility: they keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.  The fabric, made of a mix of viscose and bamboo, is soft and snuggly and feels a lot like a luxurious cashmere or silk.  Bamboo is also great because it wicks moisture away from the skin, and is anti-microbial – the perfect fabric for the allergy sensitive.

We carry these PJs in beautiful prints as well as classic solids!

10 Things you don’t know about pajamas

We might wear our PJs every day, but how much do you really know about them?

1. Coco Chanel introduced lounging pajamas in the 20’s and revolutionlized pajamas for women.  After that, they became a totally acceptable and fashionable alternative to the traditional long nightshirt.

2. People in Africa and South Asia call their PJs “night suits”.

3. The traditional pajama set of a jacket-style shirt and pants came through Britian, but orginated from Muslims in India.

4. Before 1950, it was common for pajamas to have a drop seat to make it easy to use the the bathroom.  We see this feature on our Flapjacks as a novelty, but who knew it was a regular thing?

5. In Japan, it’s totally acceptable to wear a set of silk PJs out in the day or evening!

6. The World’s Largest Footed Pajama Party was held in Austin, Texas on March 11, 2012 where 309 adults were dressed in their footies and broke the Guiness World Record.

7. In eastern China, it is not unusual in the late afternoon or evening, for adults to wear their pajamas in public around their local neighborhood.

8. It’s thought that footed pajamas came about to protect people’s feet from bed bugs and termites.  Eek!

9. In the roaring 20’s high society men and women would wear their PJs to the beach.

10. Nightcaps were popular to wear to bed in the 19th century.  The were intended to keep people’s heads warm, but got their long pointy shape so that they were long enough to wear as a scarf, but not long enough to pose a choking hazard.

Who knew?!
