Warmth from the little things

Updated: 2007-01-05 14:46

In winter it can feel like the entire world is cold. People complain about the weather and are constantly looking for new ways to keep warm, but in doing so, many overlook the small things that can keep in the heat.


Everyone loves a cushion. Whether at work, reading, or watching TV, sitting on, or holding cushions can make you feel warm and comfortable. Here Citylife has compiled a list of the best cushions to keep you warm this winter.

The Changeable Cushion

Just as its name implies, the shape of this cushion changes when pressed. The special material inside the cushion conforms to your body shape, keeping you toasty warm.

The Memory Cushion

This kind of cushion can function as a mattress or pillow. The special 'memory cotton' inside automatically adjusts the height of the cushion according to the user's temperature and weight.

The Massage Cushion

A vibrator inside this cushion turns on when the pillow is pressed. It can help relieve tired backs and necks. It's small and portable, so you can treat yourself to a massage wherever you go.

The Health cushion

Health cushions, including herbal cushions, spice cushions and antibacterial cushions, can do your body good. They can regulate the nervous and blood systems, but it's a good idea to consult your doctor before buying one.

Cleaning Tips

1) Wash the cushion jacket every six to eight days.
2) Air the cushion in the sun for an hour every few days to kill any bacteria.
