We are a family of snugglers - well at least the younger kids. We take snuggling very seriously around here, I often find the children under a soft blankie enjoying some down time. While we tend to spend quite a bit of time snuggled, it looks like we are in the minority.
A recent survey revealed that Canadians aren't allowing themselves time to snuggle, throughout their day.
- Canadians spend more than three times on their electronic devices, then they do snuggling with their loved ones
- As Canadians age they spend less time snuggling (ages 18 - 34 snuggle for 44 minutes/per day, ages 45 - 54 only spend 20 minutes/per day)
Time to take back Snuggling, Canada!
Check out these helpful tips from expert Kathy Buckworth, who is parenting expert.
Host a mock sleep-over in the living room. Put on a family favourite movie and snuggle up with sleeping bags and pillows
Make sure clothing is Snuggle soft and fresh smelling. Let kids bring along their favourite blanket and pillow when leaving the house, so you are always ready to snuggle
Be prepared with a soft towel for when kids come out of the lake or swimming pool. Wrap the towel around your child for a summertime snuggle
Make a corner of the couch a digital-free snuggle zone
Washing with Snuggle Fabric Softener and drying with Snuggle Dryer Sheets is the first step to ensuring your home is always ready for a snuggle.
Snuggle will keep your clothing (and blankies) soft and fresh-smelling. It will also reduce wrinkles in clothing and neutralize static cling.
Now, get ready to snuggle this summer!
