From street shoes to slippers: the psychology of comfort when coming home

Why do we love taking off our shoes and slipping into cosy slippers when we get home? This is exactly the question we ask ourselves in the following article.

There is something pleasant about taking off our shoes and slipping into a pair of soft, cosy slippers as soon as we get home. From a psychological point of view, taking off our shoes means switching from the outside world to our personal refuge. The feeling of warmth and softness that envelops our feet provides an immediate sense of relaxation and comfort, signalling to our brain that it's time to relax and let go of the stresses of the day. This simple act can help alleviate anxiety and provide a sense of calm, making it a favourite ritual for many.

In addition to the psychological benefits, the ritual of putting on slippers also fulfils a practical purpose. By creating a boundary between the outside world and the home, slippers can help to keep our living spaces clean and free from dirt. This can contribute to a sense of order and cleanliness in the home and add to the feeling of relaxation and comfort. In addition, the support and cushioning provided by slippers can help to reduce foot fatigue and improve posture so that we can fully relax at home.
