I support the websites and podcasts that I like by, to the extent possible, buying stuff from their sponsors. Harry’s Shave, Casper mattresses (pillows), Quip. But I would have never bought a “weighted calming blanket.” Sounds like a gimmick. Doesn’t sound comfortable. Wouldn’t it be too hot to sleep in?
The Lovely And Talented Mrs. Mongo bought me one for Christmas. She did it because there are few people with as many and as big sleep dysfunctions as I have. Just trying to help. I kind of rolled my eyes–internally, after about 137 years of marriage, I’ve learned that ensuring the eye roll is solely internal is key to maintaining domestic tranquility–and kind of thought “yeah, whatever.”
Okay. Now I gotta come clean.
I am sleeping every night like someone hit me over the head with an axe handle. Unbelievable. Sleeping so well I’m waking before the alarm goes off (usually at/about 0530) and just waiting for it, enjoying the blanket.
If your sleep is jacked up, you might want to give this a shot.Published in
