Weight! Don't pressure me too much!

Weight! Don't pressure me too much!
I thought weight and pressure/compression did the same thing – put additional force on the body so the force triggered the body/brain to engage and regulate.
I thought the results (regulation) were the same regardless whether weight or pressure was used to create the regulation.
I thought it was mostly personal preference that determined which method was the best suited to obtain regulation.
For at least one person, I thought wrong.

The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. 
~Marcel Proust

The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand. 
~Frank Herbert

Action Ideas
A wonderful young lady explained that she needed both pressure and weight to help her function at her best. Each item produced a different result.
In the morning, when her alarm went off, before she got out to bed, she grabbed a very snug t-shirt and put it on. It helped her to focus on one behaviour at a time of her morning routine. Without doing that first step, she claimed she would’ve been ‘madly off in all directions’ and late for every day of school and work.
At night, her weighted blanket quieted her critical woulda/shoulda/coulda voices that chorused in her head. With a weighted blanket, it was easier to relax and fall asleep.
Great feedback of her experience! It also shows that when trying to find solutions, there are lots of variables to consider.

Enjoy a focused or quiet mindset this week, depending on what you need at the time.

P.S. Our new order of pressure vests have very tiny perforations to help with heat regulation. The durable neoprene centre still provides a strong resilient stretch for those who need it to focus or whatever other wonderful things it does for you.
Our new shipment of children-sized weighted vests has arrived! We are now restocked with hundreds of vests in indigo, black and khaki (a brown-based khaki) as well has deep purple and turquoise for a splash of spring-time colour.
