What happened during the whole process?

Whenever I try something new, I always try to keep the rest of my routine pretty much the same. If I start altering too many things at one time, it’s hard to discern what’s working and what’s not. To keep things as controlled as possible, I was diligent about wearing my blue-light glasses in the evening (I like to watch one hour of TV while I eat dinner around 7 p.m., so blocking that blue light is important!), and then, I kept lights low, read for about an hour before bed, took my normal before-bed supplements (Solluna by Kimberly Snyder’s Feel Good Detoxy 2.0, $30, and one capsule of “sleep support” I found at my local Whole Foods store), and turned out the lights between 10:00 or 10:30. I also love the Calm app. I’ve found its sleep stories work better than relaxing music or white noise for lulling me to sleep.

Any challenges?

Not really! I run super hot at night, so one reason I avoided weighted blankets in the past was for fear I’d get overheated and wake up in a sweat. But since the blanket I have from Bearaby is specifically designed to be cooling, I had zero issues. 

Any surprises?

Honestly, I was surprised after my very first night. I’d read that it can take several weeks to really notice a difference while sleeping under a weighted blanket, (the brand says it can take up to 10 days to fully adjust), but I slept like a rock that first night. In fact, I woke up in the exact same position I fell asleep in, and I’m not sure if I even moved!
