Quiet Mind Reviews
I have only had this pillow out of the box for about 5 minutes, and Im honestly shocked by how soothing it is to hold it in my arms or on my lap. I was skeptical, but have had good success with managing anxiety and stress with weighted blankets, though that usually ends in a nap due to having to lay down, so the idea of a similar effect that's not a blanket was appealing. This pillow is a lovely soothing green color with a cozy almost boucle cover. It appears to be well made but does have a slight chemical odor out of the box (Im sure this will dissipate quickly). I do think that the MSRP of $189 is high, and would probably wait for a sale if I wanted to pick one of these up as a gift. I'll update in a few weeks/months with info on efficacy during meditation or high-stress moments.
everything was amazing, really helped with my anxiety THANK YOU
I fell into the weighted blanket craze a few years back, and have not touched or used them since because they’re such a pain to clean and fold. So, I was excited to try this out. From the moment I unboxed it (the packaging is great btw!) I really, really liked it. It feels nice to hold and have in your lap. It’s like a little baby tbh. Love that the cover comes off so you can wash it- that’s a HUGE plus for me! I like hugging it when I’m just chilling and watching TV, or putting my laptop on top of it on my lap while I get some work done. Surprisingly, when I showed my mom and my boyfriend, they didn’t understand how to use it at first. They both thought you’re supposed to lay down put your head on it, which I mean, you can? But the primary purpose of the pillow is to hug and hold it. I had to teach them that it’s supposed to be used similar to how a weighted blanket would be. Just a surprising moment of product education I found interesting! Lastly, I know it’s quite pricey, but I think it’s comparable to what most weighted blankets cost. So I get that. In the future I think different shapes would be great! I’d love one that’s more rectangular.
I love it. I’m a big fan of weighted blankets because I want to be pressed like a panini. It’s very soothing to hold. However, I got the thingtesting discount. I cannot possibly imagine this being worth more than $50. It’s a nice heavy pillow. But the retail price is close to $200? That’s seems out of the range of most people.
Anything to calm your mind is in my household. This huge pillow cuddle you like a teddy bear- as design- with good feel. A bit pricey.
