40 Things That Make Sitting Around More Comfortable & Enjoyable For Less Than $40


There is a real art to the practice of relaxation. For instance, laying around on your couch all day watching movies is great — but laying around on your couch all day watching movies while you're wearing fuzzy slipper socks, wrapped up in a heated throw blanket, and have an electric scalp massager working out all the tension in your head is (chef's kiss) pure artistry. And since I aspire to be the Michelangelo of relaxation, I've put together this list of comfortable things on Amazon that elevate the art of sitting around to museum-level greatness.

Of course — the first thing to emphasize is that all these items are available on Amazon. That means you can get started on your lounging around right now, since you can just do all your shopping from your couch or bed.

The next thing to mention is that I've made sure to include products that will help you relax no matter where you. So while there are certainly a good number of items that'll level up your at-home spa night or movie marathon, there are also tons of cozy products that'll help you feel more comfortable and relaxed on airplanes, in cars, and at work.

For product picks that'll turn your relaxation practice into art — scroll through.

Give yourself plenty of lighting options with this ingenious color-changing light bulb. It comes with a handy remote control that lets you toggle between eight brightness settings, flash and strobe modes, and 16 colors — including a warm white light, in case you decide to play it neutral.


A Wobbly Seat Cushion That Strengthens Your Abs While You Sit

This balance disc seat cushion is a lot more low key than a big balance ball chair, but it still gives your core a good workout. Sitting on the wobbly cushion forces you to engage your abs, which can also help strengthen your back muscles, improve your posture, and enhance your balance.

An Acupressure Mat That Will Boost Your Physical And Mental Wellbeing

Reviewers say this "clearly evil but extremely effective" acupressure mat and pillow "provides great relief," and I'm apt to agree.

This reviewer writes "We literally couldn’t stop playing and didn’t end up quitting until we had exhausted every single meme in the stack ... we couldn’t breathe from laughing so hard!"


A Mug With An Indentation To Keep Your Hand Warm

I'm obsessed with this hand warmer mug that features an indentation that wraps around your fingers to keep them warm while you sip. Each extra-large mug is handcrafted in Oregon and features a totally distinctive glaze pattern. And while the one-of-a-kind mugs feel super special, they're still dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Choose from right-handed and left-handed versions.


The Insulator That Keeps Slim Bottles Of Beer And Cider Cold

Keep your slim bottles of beer and cider chilly in this can cooler made with double-walled stainless steel and copper.

Just flip up the magnifying screen, place your phone in the holder, and voilà — you've got a 12-inch screen.


A Folding Chair That Makes It More Comfortable To Sit On The Floor

If you can't get through a full meditation session because your back starts aching (raises hand), this folding floor chair is for you. The padded foam chair offers stability and comfort, and features an adjustable backrest, so you can angle it back and recline as much as you'd like.


This Water-Resistant Picnic Blanket For Outside Lounging

If you plan on doing your lounging outside, you'll want to take this picnic blanket along.

And when you're not using it — it rolls up into its own handy little carrying case.
