Sorry, but I’m about to go on a tangent. Since I’m perpetually sleep-deprived, I’m always on the hunt to find the one. And by that I mean the one magical product that’s going to ensure I fall asleep in 10 seconds flat and stay asleep until a respectable time of the morning. (There was a spell where 4 a.m. was my norm!) For years, I assumed that the aforementioned antidote would come in the form of a pill or tincture or chew, but as it turns out, it came to me in the form of a blanket.
This weighted blanket has changed my life, and I am so obsessed that I don’t even know where to start. The second I pull it over me, I feel a wave of serotonin hit me, and within a few minutes, my eyelids can’t stay open. Then, when I do fall asleep, I quite literally don’t move the entire night. It’s that deep! There are tons of weighted blankets on the market, but I highly recommend Bearaby. All the materials the brand uses are natural, organic, and sourced ethically and sustainably. Plus, as someone who gets absurdly hot at night no matter what I’m wearing (or not wearing), I appreciate that the material is cooling, soft, and silky. So yes, I will be gifting one of these to everyone I love most this season.
