Weighted blankets are a soothing and comforting way to relieve anxiety and sleeplessness. I just got this one from Weighting Comforts and it’s great! It’s like a regular blanket but it has little pellets sewn into it to give the blanket a little bit of weight (10 pounds total for the size I got) that feels like a hug or massage (actually it’s kind of like there’s a cat sleeping on you haha). This particular brand is handmade by refugee women in Nashville, Tennessee. 🙂
Oh wait, there is a cat sleeping on me…
