How to make love with your weighted blanket

I was deeply resistant to both purchasing and laying under twenty pounds of tiny glass beads.

Some part of me didn’t want to be okay on my own. I clung to wanting someone beside me to sleep. It became clear this resistance had something to teach me and I certainly needed to sleep better, so I forked out $120💚.

Here’s what I learned.

  • If you enjoy solo duvet cover wrangling, you’ll absolutely adore the additional challenge of an insert with the dead weight and agility of a 5'×7' sleeping cat

If you have difficulties sleeping, are struggling with depression or loneliness, or just want to try a new, calming sensation on your body… experimenting with a weighted blanket is highly recommended!
