Being in pain all the time sucks, there's just no getting around that fact. But even the smallest thoughtful tweaks to a person's daily routine can make a world of difference.

The key? Aim for maximum chill.

Weighted blankets have earned cult-like reverence in the last few years. That's because warmth and a bit of gentle compression make for a tension-easing match made in heaven. The even distribution of that weight makes these blankets comforting like nothing else.
