Worth The Weight
The past few months have been a trying time in two ways: first, in the basic sense, i.e. it’s been stressful; and second, in that, it’s been a time for trying new things to keep yourself from going stir crazy.
Maybe you’ve baked more. Maybe you’ve cooked more meals at home. Maybe you’ve walked more. Maybe you’ve done some home renovation or redecorating projects. Maybe you started a garden. Maybe you put up feeders and got birding book. Point is, you’ve been throwing the metaphorical spaghetti against the wall and seeing what sticks for a while now.
And that’s great. You’ve taken a difficult time and found some personal enrichment. The problem? It’s not over.
So we say: new year, new approach.
The flour, the walking shoes, the paint, the spackle, the trowel, the binoculars–take them all and shove them in the closet. Then, turn on some British reality television, lay down on the couch, pull your Sharper Image Plush Velveteen Weighted Blanket over yourself, and do like the bears do this time of year: hibernate.
Okay, we’re exaggerating here. But the point stands, after 2020, everyone deserves a little extra relaxation. And what better way to relax than under the soothing heft of a comfy weighted blanket?
