Weighted Blankets: Give Yourself A Hug During Stressful Times

Being a single mom and raising my son on my own is easy.

Add COVID, Quarantine, masks, distance learning, assessments over zoom, assessments at school and now I’m finally feeling the stress. Everything seems to be happening at once. I found that weighted blankets will help! Give yourself a hug during stressful times!

Weighted Blankets: Give Yourself A Hug During Stressful Times
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Last year, I received a few weighted blankets that I was very grateful for. I loved the idea of a removable cover, so I could wash them whenever I wanted. However, I quickly realized what a hassle it can be to remove the cover and then try to put the cover back on. And even when I got the cover back on, the insert would pull to one side or even end up at the foot of the bed. The blanket rarely stayed in place inside the cover!

Now that winter is coming up, I am thinking about weighted blankets again! Also, dealing with quarantine, distance learning, and a lot of other things, I find myself extremely stressed out! If you’re like me, you are searching for ways to cope with everything. I highly recommend finding the best weighted blankets for your lifestyle!

Now, when it comes to weighted blankets, I want simple and easy to clean! I want lightweight too! I just want a gentle hug!

Ease the aches

When I saw the Huggaroo Microwavable Heating Pad with Washable Cover and Lavender, I knew I could benefit from this! 

I’ve never used a heating pad before, but this product stood out to me. I love that it is infused with lavender, a calming scent! I use the Huggaroo Microwavable Heating Pad with Washable Cover and Lavender after a long day!

The Huggaroo Microwavable Heating Pad with Washable Cover and Lavender is easy to use. I pop it in the microwave for a minute and a half and the gentle heat feels good on my shoulders. The added weight and the lavender helps me de-stress.

I can’t wait to use the Huggaroo Microwavable Heating Pad with Washable Cover and Lavender when I have headaches. I also get tension headaches. I try not to use OTC medicine, so the heating pad will come in handy!  

Gentle weight on the lap

When I think of weighted blankets, I never thought to consider other weighted products. But when I saw the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad – Plush Puppy, I knew I had to have one!

As you can see, the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad – Plush Puppy is cute and cuddly! He is so soft and a gentle weight on your lap. I use him in the evening while watching television or throughout the day.

I also put him on my son’s lap during school zoom sessions. My son has Autism and can easily get distracted. The Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad – Plush Puppy gives him something soft to keep on his lap. The lap pad easily keeps him calm and grounded.

I love the Huggaroo Weighted Blanket for Kids. My son can easily use it on his lap watching television or during school sessions.

However, I find myself using the Huggaroo Weighted Blanket for Kids in the evening too! The blanket is definitely kid size, so I use it on my lap. When I’m feeling stressed, I have it on my lap. It just naturally helps calm my nerves! 

Sensory Sheets

With my son’s Autism, he seeks sensory touch, such as hugs! I notice he sleeps with two fleece blankets at night and I believe it’s because he likes the soft touch on his skin! 

Huggaroo Pouch Sensory Compression Bed Sheet

When I saw the Huggaroo Pouch Sensory Compression Bed Sheet skeptical but curious! When it arrived, I was super excited for my son to try it. However, it was so difficult to get on his bed. Being a single mom, I am one person, so it would have been easier if I had another set of hands to help me put it on the bed. With one person, I’d get one corner on one end and then go to the other end to try to put it on and the other side would slip off. It was so frustrating because I was trying for a few minutes! 

Overall, make sure you have another person to help you with this. 

I am glad I finally got the Huggaroo Pouch Sensory Compression Bed Sheet on his bed. They now incorporate it in his daily therapy. 

The Huggaroo Pouch Sensory Compression Bed Sheet is lightweight, soft, and smooth! It is very gentle on the skin. My son loves laying in his bed under his bed sheet!

Sleep Soundly

In addition to feeling grounded and safe, you can add humidity to your indoor air. 

It never fails! When the weather cools down, our skin starts to suffer. I feel itchy, my skin looks dry and cracked.  Even our lips are drier!

My son and I also suffer from the occasional eczema breakouts all over. We usually have small spots or patches. I knew I wanted to add humidity to our dry air. Plus, the humidifier would benefit my houseplants!  I am also a fan of using oil diffusers to add humidity for houseplants

I love the PureGuardian H4810AR 2-Gallon Warm & Cool Mist Humidifier for the huge tank! Not only that, I can adjust the level of humidity! I use this one in the main living area, where most of my houseplants are and also my son sleeps in the living room. So it benefits our main living space overall! 

I find myself cleaning the Warm & Cool Mist Humidifier at least once a week. I use plain water and a little splash of white vinegar! I love that there are no filters to replace. 

The Warm & Cool Mist Humidifier is easy to maintain!
