HOW TO BETTER RELAX WITH A TRANQUILITY™ WEIGHTED BLANKET
2020 has definitely been a challenging year (and certainly one for the history books!). With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting our state hard, we’ve been under stay at home orders since the end of March. Our lives have been upended, and our routines have totally changed. I’m doing a lot of working from home (seeing patients via telemedicine visits), and on top of this I’ve been busy homeschooling the kids. There is still all the busy housework to do (the housekeepers we use haven’t been able to come in weeks) and now I’m spending my time homeschooling the kids. There are never enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do! But I am eternally grateful that I have my family, my job and my health. There are many nights I don’t get enough sleep and it can be hard to find time to exercise on a consistent basis, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have found though that setting aside time every day to unwind from the day makes all the difference in the world. I am a homebody by nature, and some of my favorite activities include: reading a book in my favorite calm space in my home, watching a movie with my kids, chatting with my husband, and relaxing with a good podcast. And all of these activities are enhanced with the calming pressure of a Tranquility Weighted Blanket.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE A WEIGHTED BLANKET?
A good hug seems to just melt your troubles away, leaving you feeling calm and relaxed. Maybe this is because before we were born we were in a constant “hugged” state in our mother’s womb. Babies love to be swaddled, as it makes them feel like they are in their mother’s womb. And that comforting sense you get from a swaddle doesn’t stop just because you grow older. I love using my weighted blanket not only to sleep, but to unwind with a good book or movie at the end of a stressful and busy day. And the deep touch pressure of a Tranquility™ weighted blanket can help ease mental stress and offer physical comfort during this time of heightened anxiety for so many people!
