Gravity Blanket: The Weighted Blanket for Sleep | Premium Weighted Blanket with Removable Cover | Generation 2 with Button/Ties Fastening System | Navy, 15lbs, 48"x72"
  • Trouble sleeping? Gravity is a premium-grade weighted blanket that uses light weight on the body to improve sleep quality. The latest generation of Gravity's Original Blanket features internal upgrades while maintaining the blanket's signature look and feel.
  • WEIGHTS: Available in 15, 20, and 25lb options; we recommend selecting the one that’s about 10% of your body weight. Do not simply choose the heaviest option as "more heavy" does not equal "more effective"! You want one that's closest to 10% of your own body weight.
  • DIMENSIONS: Gravity is sized 72” x 48”, providing a grounding experience for ONE USER at a time. We designed it in this throw blanket size to allow the weight to be evenly distributed over the user and because each user requires a weight specific to their body weight.

总结

我本人平时使用的是 “Sleep Cycle” 这个软件 app,来记录睡眠状况,它与 Calm 类似,提供了帮助睡眠的白噪音、音乐和睡前故事,不过数量上无法与 Calm 相比。

期待各位读者在下方留言分享各种冥想体验,作为新人用户,我会试用 Calm 这款软件,将来定期在本文下方的留言初和大家分享体验。

  1. 我用 sleep sound 这个 app,免费,有音乐、各种声音,没有故事,一年 premium 会员$3.49,不知道加入会员有什么福利。每天的CNN新闻,中间都在打 Calm 的广告,看到我很烦,所以愈加讨厌 Calm。
