2020 has definitely been a challenging year (and certainly one for the history books!). With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting our state hard, we’ve been under stay at home orders since the end of March. Our lives have been upended, and our routines have totally changed. I’m doing a lot of working from home (seeing patients via telemedicine visits), and on top of this I’ve been busy homeschooling the kids. There is still all the busy housework to do (the housekeepers we use haven’t been able to come in weeks) and now I’m spending my time homeschooling the kids.  There are never enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do! But I am eternally grateful that I have my family, my job and my health. There are many nights I don’t get enough sleep and it can be hard to find time to exercise on a consistent basis, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I have found though that setting aside time every day to unwind from the day makes all the difference in the world. I am a homebody by nature, and some of my favorite activities include: reading a book in my favorite calm space in my home, watching a movie with my kids, chatting with my husband, and relaxing with a good podcast. And all of these activities are enhanced with the calming pressure of a Tranquility Weighted Blanket

A good hug seems to just melt your troubles away, leaving you feeling calm and relaxed. Maybe this is because before we were born we were in a constant “hugged” state in our mother’s womb. Babies love to be swaddled, as it makes them feel like they are in their mother’s womb. And that comforting sense you get from a swaddle doesn’t stop just because you grow older. I love using my weighted blanket not only to sleep, but to unwind with a good book or movie at the end of a stressful and busy day. And the  deep touch pressure of a Tranquility™ weighted blanket can help ease mental stress and offer physical comfort during this time of heightened anxiety for so many people!

Tranquility™ is the affordable weighted blanket brand from American Textile Company designed to help adults and children relax and recenter, so they can rest, feel replenished, and sleep more comfortably. Tranquility™ blankets are made up of a combination of recycled polyester fiber fill, manufactured using recycled plastic bottles as well as thousands of tiny glass beads.  The box quilting design prevents shifting to ensure the beads are evenly distributed. And the fill and beads are surrounded by a micro-plush fabric that is luxurious and soft to the touch.  They are available in weights ranging from six to twenty pounds, so you can easily find the weighted blanket that is perfect for you. Tranquility™ recommends a blanket weight that is around 10% of your total body weight, although many people use a heavier or lighter blanket, depending on your personal preference.

And  premium  Tranquility™ weighted blankets feature a removable cover, unlike many weighted blankets that are spot clean only. This removable cover is machine washable and dryable, which allows for easy care.  With current evidence suggesting that COVID-19 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces, including fabrics, Tranquility’s weighted blankets with a washable cover are a must! Finally, these blankets are definitely suitable no matter what the season, since they come with temperature balancing technology.
