Sleep is precious. It is probably the best thing I can do for myself. Health wise, energy wise and sanity wise, sleep helps me recharge for my busy life. But, let’s face it, we all have a million things on our mind all the time. I, for one, can be cozily tucked into bed, tired and ready to sleep and a thought can enter my mind and keep me up for another hour. Whether that thought leads to anxiety or just the inability to settle, it can be hard for me to settle back down after that. Enter the weighted blanket that is my new sleep saver from Weighting Comforts! I L O V E this thing!! It makes me feel like I am sleeping with the biggest hug I have ever gotten.
I was lucky enough to get a twin sized weighted blanket to use and try out. Immediately as it came out of the package I knew this was a game changer. The kids tried to take it because it is soft and pretty and really cool feeling. But I laid it on my bed to test out.
- Reduces anxiety
- Feels like you’re being hugged or held gently
- Helps you relax
- Improves your sleep
The first night I thought I would feel anxiety from having a weight on me. But I actually felt calm. Like I was actually protected.
I do tend to move a lot at night. I have dogs on me bed and I wiggle and move around to accommodate them. However, the first night I slept with the weighted blanket I slept right through. I don’t remember getting up at all, in fact and it has been that way ever since.
Each Weighting Comforts blanket is handmade by a refugee woman in Nashville, Tennessee, creating income for her family. We use high quality 100% cotton fabric and 100% polyester thread for added strength and durability. The weighted beads inside each 5” pocket are made from an FDA-approved, non-irritating PVC compound.
Of course, the weighted blanket is not magical. My mind still goes 90 to nothing at bedtime. But I somehow feel like when I lay down and pull the weighted blanket up, I suddenly just feel calmer. It helps me feel like it is bedtime and that I will sleep well.
So far, the Weighting Comforts weighted blanket has been a complete asset to me! If you have never tried one this is the time!
