The Ultimate Bean Bag Relaxation Guide

Apr 9 2022 • 4 min read

Bean bags are for everyone. From toddler bean bags to bean bag chairs for teens and adults, you can find one of these cozy seats in any size. If you haven’t used one since your college days, you might not remember just how comfortable and relaxing a bean bag chair can be.

Choose Your Bean Bag

Start by choosing the right model for your needs. There’s the classic round bag filled with pellets that you can sink into as it conforms to your shape. Since the first model arrived, you can now choose from a lot of other types:

  • Bean bag chairs come in a range of sizes, from those that fit toddlers and small children to double bean bags and models that you can comfortably sleep on.
  • There are square bean bags and those with a back to provide a little more structure.
  • The standard fill for bean bags is polystyrene beads. Another fill type is polypropylene, which provides a little more structure.
  • You can also find memory foam bean bags that many people find the most comfortable and supportive.

Consider how you plan to use the chair when selecting a style. For fill material, you might want to try out a few models to choose which type is most comfortable.

Rest with Support

A bean bag can be a great way to relax because it’s so cozy and comfortable. With high-quality materials, a bean bag also provides adequate support and distributes pressure evenly. This means you can rest in it for an extended period of time without discomfort. Use your bean bag on breaks from work or for a quick cat nap.

Reduce Anxiety with a Bean Bag Chair

Sinking into a bean bag and letting the comfortable material form and envelop your body can truly soothe anxiety. When stress and worry creep into your mind, take a break in a bean bag to relax your muscles and mind.

While researchers have yet to study the impact of bean bags on mental health, there is evidence that weighted blankets relieve anxiety. A bean bag chair can provide a similar experience.

Bean Bag Meditation

Meditation is one of the best things you can do to relax, reduce stress, and improve overall mental health. A bean bag chair can enhance your practice by providing a cozy, comfortable place to focus. If you haven’t meditated before, try guided audio meditations to get started.

Ease Muscle and Joint Pain

Nothing tenses your body more than pain. If you sit a lot during the day or struggle with injuries or joint aches, a bean bag is a great way to soothe those pains. Downtime in a bean bag will help you feel more relaxed and comfortable to reduce overall stress.

Add a Bean Bag to Your Relaxing Bedtime Routine

Good sleep begins with a healthy routine. If you struggle to sleep at night, create a set of relaxing steps to prepare your mind and body to drift off. Whether you enjoy a hot beverage, a good book, or a meditation, do it in your bean bag to get comfy and relaxed for sleep.
