- Weighted Blanket
Whether you are laying on the couch, in bed, or you have found yourself in a blanket fort, we hope that lots of blankets and pillows are involved. If you want a blanket that is going to be the cheery on top, though, a weighted blanket is the one for you. It will be the key to relaxing your entire body, in no time. Weighted blankets are proven to reduce stress and anxiety by using “deep pressure stimulation” which simulates the feeling of being hugged or held. This increases serotonin and melatonin all while decreasing cortisol levels. It will also majorly improve your sleep quality, which will help you to finally get the rest you deserve.

We hope that whatever you decide to do to help your relaxation, that it will truly help you to feel better, take a much-needed break, and get you back to feeling great and in tip top shape! Remember, in order to perform at your best, you need to take both small and long breaks from work and other stresses. So, try to incorporate a routine that allows you some breathing room.
