Over the past few weeks it’s started to get cold out here in wine country (great living choice when you are a bit of a lush right?), that combined with the lurgy I had the other week means that I’ve taken to doubling up a king size blanket and putting that over me at night.
Now I’d heard the theory that a weighted blanket can help you sleep better. And after a couple of weeks,I’m kind of inclined to believe it’s true when combined with laying off the booze. I’m sleeping better than I have in ages. Mind you, I also gave up worry, that’s probably helping a bit as well, and I’ve taken some steps to fix the major issue that was keeping me up (more on that in another post, all I’ll say is not spending your days hungover makes you more proactive!)
Last night I didn’t use the doubled blanket, I used a cat instead. It was cold and the girl cat decided that my chest needed to be stood on while she dribbled on my chin – restful right? LOL. Anyway as I drifted off to sleep with her deep purring vibrating through my body and a light stream of cat drool dripping of my chin I thought that life is pretty good, I’ve got nothing to complain about, and that she was doing a great job keeping me warm.
So, my advice is don’t waste your cash on a commercial weight blanket, get a cat and save the “pay rise” you’ve given yourself by quitting booze, your life will be better for it.
