This Sunbeam Heating Pad from Amazon is one of the most useful things I have bought recently. As I have mentioned before in posts for a standing desk and back support, I have been having back problems.
My back has been getting better though, and I think it has been a combination of stretching, exercise, standing desk, and a heating pad (the latest addition).
There are many possible options you can buy for a heating pad. For example, there is a heating pad that you can throw in the microwave and heat up manually. This one works ok and is cheap; however, it is difficult to get the heating pad to stay at the right temperature for a long enough time. When it comes out of the microwave, it is boiling hot, but then it quickly gets cold as well; this means that you only have the optimal temperature for a couple of minutes.
This Sunbeam Heating Pad is a better option in my opinion because it is electric. This allows you to choose the heat that you want, and it will stay at this temperature for the entire time. It takes 5 minutes or so before it heats up, but once it does it will stay hot as long as you have it plugged in. It also has a strap that allows you to adjust where you are heating, and is useful if multiple people want to use it (and are different body sizes).
Overall, I think that heating my back on a daily basis has really helped; I can often feel some relief immediately after I have used the heating pad!
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!
