Why Are You Always So Cold?

Cold AF all the time and wondering why? Turns out, there are plenty of health-related reasons you might be shivering. If you've recently lost weight (not as much insulation!), you're deficient in iron or B12, or your thyroid is out of whack, you could be feeling colder than usual.

But the most likely scenario? It's cold outside, your office is drafty, and your heater hasn't quite caught up with the dropping temps yet. Regardless of the reason for your chills, there's a convenient solution that doesn't require cranking up the heat everywhere you go: weighted blankets.

Touted for their anxiety-calming qualities, these heavy blankets (usually filled with plastic or glass pellets), are also amazing for those who just can't seem to warm up no matter what they do. Here, eight of the best weighted blankets that'll warm you right up.
