I was hesitant at first to post about my new found weighted blanket love because it seems like every d-list celebrity and reality TV star is currently hawking a weighted blanket on their Instagram page and I didn’t want to join the fray. However, I am such a huge fan of my weighted blanket I HAVE to share the news!
I personally purchased Dr Hart’s Weighted Blanket on Amazon pictured above (not the product the Instagrammers are promoter). I am a very light and fitful sleeper and so I am always eager to try out any product that promises to improve my quality of sleep. I must say, when I started sleeping with a weighted blanket, I noticed a dramatic difference the very first night. Since getting this blanket I find myself waking fewer times throughout the night and when I do wake up I am able to fall back asleep right away.
I know that sleep is necessary not only for my physical health but for my mental help as well. Because I am getting better sleep during the night I have found that I am having an easier time getting up in the morning, and I don’t start my day feeling quite as exhausted as I used to. It is so much easier starting the day off on the right foot when you actually feel rested! So to anyone who has contemplated getting a weighted blanket, I highly recommend taking the plunge. Pair your blanket with a silk pillowcase (my other favorite sleep accessory) and get ready for the best sleep of your life! Your body and mind will thank you!
