Mental health tends to be something that a lot of people don't want to talk about or choose not to talk about. It's a hard subject but it's something that everyone needs to take care of.
Mental health comes in many forms. For me it's taking time out of my day to work out or play in the mud aka make pottery. For others it can be reading, listening to music but for some it's much harder to maintain.
I come from a family with a long history of mental health struggles. My mom is manic depressant/Bi Polar and my little brother is Bi Polar and Paranoid schizophrenic. Needless to say my childhood was very interesting. These are hard core mental illnesses. As I kid I didn't understand the illness or why my mom couldn't get out of bed or why she would freak out at me for no reason. Most days I felt like she hated me and honestly, some days she probably did because her mental health wasn't being taken care of. I have watched my little brother struggle with drugs and bounce in and out of jail his entire life because he doesn't understand that he needs to take better care of his illness.
I know weighted blankets are no where near a cure for mental illness but they can certainly help with your mental health. I've seen it first hand with my mom and my brother in the daily anxiety and stress that they feel. This is another reason I started Moxie Blankets. Weighted Blankets have literally changed our lives. I know they are an investment but I truly hope that you make that investment in yourself and loved ones.
