In a society based on constant external pressure to succeed, Getting COMFY is an internal method that thwarts these pressures right when you wake up. It is a 5-step voyage that soothes the mind and energizes the body as you approach the rest of the day. We may have un-COMFY feelings with our bodies, our jobs, or our schoolwork. This has happened to me too. But the way we respond to these situations is what we can control, what ultimately leads us to the people we strive to be, and what leads us to Getting COMFY.
Why did Jordan write Getting COMFY?
57% of Americans are snoozers, 76% wake up abruptly, and only 33% define their waking up experience as “good”. More than 41 million Americans experience some type of mental illness in any given year, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a branch of the US Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C. Up 16% since 2000. Millennials in particular are the most overstressed generation, with 1 in 5 experiencing some sort of depression, anxiety or mental illness.
This movement is geared toward the millennial population because there is nobody writing about it from a peer-to-peer perspective. Millennials want what is COMFY for us, we do not like being told how to live by older generations, and the majority of literature based on how to handle transitional life periods comes from non-millennial sources. I need to carry this message because nobody is. Thinking positive, not caring about what others think, Getting COMFY in your own skin, waking up earlier to better yourself, is viewed as a more mature mindset that may come with years of experience. But that is absolute horseshit. We can all start bettering ourselves now, and I am determined to guide you in doing so.
But even further than just being geared toward millennials, Getting COMFY is geared toward anybody with a growth mindset. Somebody that is constantly looking to improve the way they live and improve the lives of others. It is for anybody looking to get better in any aspect of life be it emotionally, physically, relationally, socially, athletically, or financially.
