Metatalktail Hour: Aid and Comfort

Happy Metatalktail Hour, chat fans! This week I'd like to ask you about your comfort food(s): what are they, and why are they comforting? Something from your childhood, or just a taste / texture that is somehow soothing or reassuring? Are there rules for comfort foods? Only certain colors? Is crunch allowed? Required? Do you ever acquire *new* comfort food, or is it The One True Nosh forever? [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: Everybody needs a Pug

I don't think anyone feels lighthearted at the moment, but we could all use a little comfort right now ... so maybe this is a good time to share our cute pet pix or favorite animal shots, stories, or videos. [more inside]

Remembering the Shire

This is a hugely stressful time for everyone and I'd like to propose a thread in which we celebrate ordinary beautiful things and good moments - something not meant at all to diminish the terrible things happening but to be a small comforting place away from the doomscrolling and arguments and fear for those in, near and watching the war. (There is a great thread on ways to help Ukraine and for mefites directly affected as another positive place)

MetaTalktail Hour: Stories of courage and comfort

This week's prompt comes from MonkeyToes: Huron Bob's stories were so often humane and comforting. In his memory, let's have a story MetaTalk? One where we tell a story about something encouraging that's stuck with us over the years, or about someone telling us just the right and comforting thing at a difficult moment, or something to give courage and comfort? This is not meant as a minimizing everyone-must-be-happy way... but it might be a good time to share stories that sustain us. [more inside]

MetaComfort

Let's talk about stress-relief. When you're faced with stress, what do you do to provide yourself a bit of comfort? Do you cook a familiar meal? Do you listen to a song? Is there a television show/series you re-watch? Maybe you exercise or you drink your favorite drink. Or it's as simple as calling or visiting with a friend or a loved one. What are your comfort hacks? Let's share our methods of dealing with stress. Be well my fellow MetaFilter friends. Remember to take care of yourself and know that you matter.
