Sleeping was never SUPER easy for me. Often times I overhear people say how they can hardly stay awake the second there head hits the pillow and I sit there in pure jealousy. I have tried many "natural" remedies such as melatonin, messages, and even meditation. To be honest I even started to work out (which I guess is a good thing) but it still did not lead to a better sleep.
My sister in law actually sent me a link to an article suggesting that weighted blankets may hold the key to all my sleep problems. Although skeptical at first (very skeptical) I figured I would give it a try. After reaching out to a few companies, Hush was very eager to assist me and help me choose a weight and even answer any lingering questions I had.
Lucky enough they had a few in stock and I was able to receive my blanket within just a couple of days.
When the blanket arrived I was super excited (isn't everybody these days with packages?) The blanket took about 10 minutes to set up and I could not wait to have my first few nights of sleep with my new Hush Weighted Blanket.
The first couple of nights were a little interesting, to say the least. I found that I was waking up much more relaxed and calm. Something I am not used too as I do have 2 kids who tend to carry a LOT of "morning energy" as I like to call it.
The next 3-5 days is where everything CHANGED. I am not kidding, it was the first time in months that I was able to sleep without my mind racing, my anxiety making me uncomfortable and my stress causing me to sweat.
I was able to just SLEEP.
Relaxed, calm, and hugged. It was pure bliss. The soft material they use and the weight just feels like somebody is cuddling you just enough so that you slip away into a beautiful sleep.
Until now, I didn't believe that anything would work. But I was wrong.
If you are reading this, and you need help getting a better nights rest don't think twice, get yourself a Hush Weighted Blanket and get your sleep back!
