Chunky Knit Home Décor With A Purpose
For Margie, founder of Get Cozy with Emme, rest wasn’t always her priority.
Prior to the pandemic, she jumped from role to role; employee, mother, wife, and friend, all with an expectation to honor everyone else before herself. Margie realized, however, that even her best efforts were causing harm to herself.
The constant hustle and grind of everyday life brought irreversible stress and pain to her body that could no longer be ignored. Margie needed to create her own lane.
Fibromyalgia Symptoms To Pay Attention To
According to the CDC, Fibromyalgia affects about 4 million US adults, about 2% of the adult population. Symptoms include, but is not limited to, pain and stiffness all over the body, fatigue and tiredness, depression and anxiety, sleep problems, problems with thinking (memory and concentration), and headaches, including migraines.
The CDC also reports, “You are more likely to have fibromyalgia as you get older.” However, through research, this does not exclude the fact that anyone at any age can experience fibromyalgia.
If there is one thing we have all learned from post 2020, it is that our health is of utmost priority. We need to take care of ourselves in order to take care of each other. With this being top of mind for Margie, Get Cozy with Emme was born.
Get Cozy with Emme
Get Cozy with Emme is a black woman-owned home goods company that aims to increase your quality of rest and relaxation. Offering throws, pet nappers, scarves, scented oils, and candles, each product is hand-made and designed with your well-being in mind.
Made from 100% Polyester Chenille Yarn material, all of their throws at Get Cozy with Emme, as well as scarves and pet nappers are custom made to order.
The brand offers complete with color and size customization, as well as a proprietary scent for each throw, meant to induce complete tranquility as soon as you open the box.
Why Start A Home Decor Comfort Brand?
Margie has expressed the difficulties of living with the disease,“I live with fibromyalgia, and there are days when I cannot show up with 100 percent of my physical ability. I have to force myself to work through pain created by a perfect storm of symptoms,”
Margie continues, “The stress of health coupled with a pandemic was motivation enough to try and create my own lane.” The owner of Cozy with Emme strives for her hand-made throws to be a part of the journey for herself and others in their self-care routine.
Care Behind The Brand
With each intentional stitch, she urges mothers, sisters, and friends, including herself, to slow down and prioritize their rest even when no one else will. “I think it is so important for us to honor our bodies and rest. As mothers, friends, and sisters, we carry the weight of others and forget about ourselves,”.
Giving a remedy to others in need of a soft reminder, Margie states, “I want to reach out to them as a reminder to focus on self-care.” Start prioritizing your rest.
