Use the weighted blanket to ease stress and improve sleep!
If you feel extra stressed or you’re simply looking for a better night’s sleep, a weighted blanket is a solution. It’s both cozy and functional, mimicking the feeling of being hugged. Weighted blankets put the right amount of extra weight on your body to simulate light pressure. It provides just enough physiological calm to help you relax or get a good night’s rest. Weighted blankets are clinically proven to help increase the amount of feel-good hormones such as oxytocin and serotonin in the brain. Plus, they promote a decrease of cortisol, which is our stress hormone. This comforting feeling really affects our mood, making us feel happy and calm. It’s a great therapeutic means for anxiety-suffers, insomniacs, or just bad sleepers.
The benefits of using a weighted blanket:
- gives a warm feeling of wellbeing and security
- helps reduce or relieve anxiety
- helps with insomnia or sleep disturbances
- treats symptoms of autism, sensory processing disorder and depression
A weighted blanket is like a regular blanket, except it has glass microbeads stitched inside to give it some added weight when you pull it around you. The blanket is constructed with a quilted cotton cover and provides excellent breathability to keep you cool in the warmer months. But it also provides decent insulation when the outside temperatures drop. Grid-like stitching helps keep the glass beads evenly distributed throughout. The weighted blanket comes in 2 sizes for individual size and shared use (120x180cm / 48×72 inch, and 150x200cm / 60×80 inch). You can also choose from three weights (7, and 9 kg / 15, and 20 pounds). The weighted sleep mask comes as a bundle with your blanket purchase.
This blanket can be used not only during sleep but also when reading or watching TV. Throw it over your bed or couch when taking a nap, or just cuddle up with a film.
