Let’s talk about self-care. Everyone is dealing with a certain level of stress these days, and developing a self-care routine has become more essential than ever. Whether you like to just throw on a pair of yoga pants or PJ’s when you get home, or curl up on the couch with your favorite book or binge your favorite TV show, spending some time to regroup is something I look forward to at the end of each day.
I’ve been looking for another way to unwind for a few months now, and when the creators of Ostrichpillow reached out to me about their new Heatbag, I couldn’t wait to try it out. This huggable companion has two therapy functions whether you prefer heat (like me for stress relief and anxiety) or a cold therapy option for sore muscles after your workout or run after work.
The Heatbag features a natural clay double-sealed hot and cold pad that can be removed from its washable zip cover to heat up in the microwave (all it takes is 60 seconds) or placed in the freezer (for an hour) for the most relaxing self-care routine. After all, who wouldn’t love a nice cozy warm hug at the end of the day?
I recently used the Heatbag for the first time while dealing with some serious period cramps, and the heat therapy option was so soothing. I’m also planning on using it as the nights continue to get colder to keep me nice and toasty underneath the sheets!
It also makes the perfect traveling heating pad too if you’re going on a long car ride. I just heat up the removable clay pad just before I’m ready to head out the door, pop it in the cover and buckle it in with me. The heat releases slowly so you’ll enjoy the comforting warmth long into your drive.
