I do not remember when I first heard about weighted blankets. However, I often have trouble sleeping, so I am always looking for things to improve my sleep quality.
This particular weighted blanket is from Costco, and it is the only one I have ever had (so I cannot personally recommend any others). I do not know what the differences are between other weighted blankets, but I am sure they all work similarly. I personally like the feeling of a weighted blanket, and I think having it on me helps me feel more relaxed and tired (although I do not know whether this is a placebo or not).
The one downside of buying a weighted blanket is that there is no way to really test whether you like it or not, other than to buy and use it. I am sure there are plenty of people who would not like the feeling of having extra weight on them while they sleep, but it is hard to know without actually using one.
If you are already satisfied with your sleeping habits and you do not need an extra assistance, then I would recommend against buying a weighted blanket. However, if you are like myself, and will try anything to help you sleep, I would recommend giving a weighted blanket a try. It is not a sleeping cure, but maybe it can give you a little peace of mind and make you more comfortable when trying to fall asleep.
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
