About Mikey Goldman:

Growing up with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Quiet Mind founder Mikey Goldman has always struggled with ways to calm his mind and quiet that pesky internal monologue we all have. After trying a weighted blanket, he noticed its benefits, but found it difficult to move around at night and during the day.

He needed a better solution, but couldn`t find one. That`s when he decided to create the world`s first weighted pillow—Quiet Mind. It was all-natural, convenient, and personal. He wanted to share his invention with other like-minded individuals dealing with the stress and anxiety of living everyday life, struggling to focus with ADHD, finding ways to help their children cope with autism, or who need to quiet their overwhelmed minds.
