Krista: I had been hearing good things about weighted blankets for a while, but was pretty skeptical about whether or not they would actually help me get a better night's sleep. However, now that I haven't been sleeping well at all and my anxiety is at an all-time high with the pandemic, I decided to finally try one out. And, surprisingly, it helped – I slept so much more soundly and felt more refreshed in the morning. Alternatively, if you're not sure if mom will want an entire weighted blanket, a company called NodPod sells weighted, micro-beaded sleeping masks!
