If you haven't heard about weighted blankets yet, you're behind on the trend. These blankets can be very heavy, weighing anywhere from four to 25 pounds. They are made heavier usually by having glass beads or plastic pellets inside. Weighted blankets have actually been around for years with the special needs community, but they are starting to become more mainstream as all people realize that they can benefit from a weighted blanket, especially people with anxiety issues. They can be simple and soft like a regular blanket, or if you need something with even more sensory input, they can be a minky dotted blanket. Whatever your needs, if you feel like you might benefit from burrito-ing yourself in one of these, check out the best weighted blankets on the market right now.

Honestly, once I get married, I'm looking forward to the honeymoon way more than the actual wedding. Weddings are beautiful ceremonies, but can be very stressful to plan, and even more so if you're going the DIY wedding route. But the honeymoon is where you finally get to relax with your new wife or husband and just let the stress wash away in the ocean waves. That is, of course, if you go to the beach for a honeymoon, which you absolutely should. Beach honeymoons are the most popular type, and for good reason. There's literally no greater feeling than sitting in the sun, one hand holding your partners', and the other hand holding your favorite tropical drink. What else could you need in life? There are a lot of beautiful beaches out there though, and it can be hard to rifle through travel websites to find out what you're looking for. So we've got a general list of the best beach honeymoon destinations for you so that you can narrow down your options to the perfect place.
You know 'em, you love 'em, and you prefer them over clowns: Mimes. You typically think of mimes as a dude in a black and white outfit and makeup, trapping themselves in an invisible box, and trying to lasso you with a rope and pull you towards them, all without speaking.
Anxiety is never fun. A lot of people might think that you're "nervous," but anyone with anxiety knows it is so much more than that. Your heart is pounding, thoughts are racing through your head, and you can't focus on anything but trying to get through your day without completely breaking down. What's worse is when that anxiety crawls into your bed with you and prevents you from sleeping. You lie in bed just begging and pleading to finally make it stop so you can get some rest. For me, when I try to go to sleep, thoughts of what went wrong that day start playing in my head like a review of a bad performance in a movie. Then I started having anxiety over the fact that I haven't fallen asleep yet, only keeping me more awake, and the cycle perpetuates itself all night long. It's insufferable.
Arriving at home should be a relaxing experience, but if you're finding yourself coughing more indoors than outdoors, there might be something wrong with your indoor air quality. You might just think you're sick at first, but if you notice the moment you step outside you instantly feel better, there's something wrong in the house. You have smoke detectors and maybe even a carbon monoxide detector, but they aren't going off.
