Weighted Blankets my Experience and the Research
A healthy dose of scepticism is fair when talking about natural aids. I have anxiety and it has caused me issues in sleeping for most of my life. I would be awake for what seemed like forever immersed in my thoughts, and by the time I have had an opportunity to fall asleep, my alarm would ring and it would be time for me to go to school or work.

Like a nimbus cloud, it is heavy but covers your body evenly. I wish you as well as everybody in the NIMBUS Team best wishes and sweet dreams.
