Glass Beads, Sleep and How It Saved My Family

Overwhelmed, feeling helpless. I didn't know what I was going to do.

The other day I snapped at my children and they’re now afraid of their mother. I quickly realized it’s because I’m exhausted, working from home and making sure my children are also handling schooling from home. I feel absolutely stressed out from all this pressure to not only do well with my work, but manage my household. I didn’t know what I was going to do

Exhausted. But my racing thoughts wouldn't let me sleep.

My partner recently lost their job and so I wasn’t getting enough sleep. It’s not for lack of trying. I can’t seem to turn off my brain at night, and all I do is worry about how I’m going to feed my son the next morning, or if I’m going to suddenly be laid off. I was quickly spiraling out of control…

In retrospect, self-medicating with alcohol was a bad mistake.

I found myself having more than one glass of wine each night. It helped me get to sleep, but I was waking up even more exhausted and hungover. And things only got worse…

Unable to Focus- My life was a mess.

I was starting to miss important deadlines, and not really caring as I watched my partner also fall into a pit of depression. They weren’t helping me out, just sleeping in all day. At least they could sleep. I couldn’t, not when my children needed me. My boss became concerned and I realized I had to quit the drinking and try something new…

Trying to solve my problems with some pills.

I was becoming desperate. I knew all I needed was more sleep, and yet I couldn’t get the amount of sleep I needed on my own, and I wasn’t going to keep using wine. So I decided to try some sleep supplements. They worked for a bit…

Side effects made things worse.

But in the end the side effects were worse. I was even more groggy in the morning and didn’t want to deal with the stress of getting my son focused and ready for school. I felt like a terrible mother and an even terrible partner and didn’t know what to do. Nothing was working, until one of the other moms suggested I try this one thing…

Another Mum suggested this...

She talked about how she was also dealing with stress and lack of sleep and suggested I try investing in these glass bead filled weighted blankets. She talked about how the weight of them calmed her nerves at night and was able to quiet her mind so she could sleep. I had to give it a go. I was desperate…

Magic. Absolute Magic!

Magic. All I can say is magic. I feel like I am in love with sleeping again. For the first time, in a very long time, I find myself falling asleep and staying asleep. I fell in love with the magic of my weighted blanket so much that I even bought my partner one. All of a sudden our lives completely changed for the better…

My life changed for the better.

I can’t believe it, but my relationship with my family has completely changed since using my weighted blanket. It’s like night and day. Even my sex life with my partner has improved and my kids have noticed a happy change in their mum. This is why you should get your hands on a weighted blanket…

Like being wrapped in a warm hug!

They honestly feel like being wrapped in a warm hug. The evenly distributed pressure feels just like when you were little sleeping under all of your gran’s quilts. When I wrap myself in my weighted blanket I begin to feel more calm. Supposedly this is because it releases the same kind of happy hormones in your body that a hug would. The glass bead filled weighted blankets are the best. Here’s why…

Why Glass Bead Weighted Blankets are the Best...

The glass filled weighted blankets are made to be the most comfortable because they aren’t as clunky as the plastic filled ones. The glass filled weighted blankets are more smooth because the glass beads can be as small as a grain of sand. They’re also way more silent then plastic filled weighted blankets when moving or turning over. If you’re in the same boat as me, and feel like you just can’t get to sleep and are lashing out at your family, here’s what you’ve got to do…

Invest in a Weighted Blanket.

Invest in a weighted blanket. Make sure it’s a glass filled one, and start enjoying sleep again.
