When life takes an unexpected turn and circumstances change rapidly, it is easy to become overwhelmed with worry. Feelings of uncertainty or anxiety increase and imagination, left unchecked can easily conjure up a million unfounded fears.
Faced with difficult or challenging situations, the body craves security - a space that offers warmth, cosiness and especially a feeling of safety. The bedroom and our beds, that very private and familiar space, the place that you end up most days whether it was a good day or a bad day, a triumph or a disaster, is a space that many would consider their 'safe space'. MiniJumbuk Logistics Manager, Alison, agrees and shared with us her thoughts on the importance of her bed and bedroom in her life and the responsibility she feels to our customers who allow MiniJumbuk to create the products they choose to use in their special space . . .

'Well, primarily beds are for sleeping, but what else do you do in a bed? Well I have day dreamed and I've cried, and laughed and raged. I've run away from the world, pulled the covers over my head when it's all been too hard. I've crawled in and curled up when I've felt sick or sad. I've laid with my sisters wee babies singing them to sleep. Lay awake for hours rejoicing over some glorious event or reliving a wonderful experience in my head. I've spent nights with lovers. I've spent long nights watching over sick kids. I've squeezed myself into the space around a frail aged loved one, watching the rise and fall of long laboured breaths. So many experiences that are not sleeping!

Beds are in bedrooms, which is such a personal, intimate and comforting space. And people buy MiniJumbuk products to put in that space - the space where they spend time on their own, or with a partner, or with their children! They choose our products for their beds. They choose our products to put on the beds of their most precious belongings, their children. They trust that our product is safe and won't harm them or their families. Which means they must trust us, the people of MiniJumbuk, the people that sell MiniJumbuk. What an amazing privilege that is. Complete strangers trust me to do my job and order raw materials that make the products that they buy and put on their new born babies beds. They trust that the product that leaves our factory is 100% safe. That's a pretty awesome responsibility.'
Create a little certainty in your bedroom with a touch of MiniJumbuk for that extra sense of warmth and comfort.
