How does a weighted blanket for anxiety work?
Our weighted blankets are carefully designed to deliver even, soothing deep touch pressure stimulation (DTPS) – in other words, a feeling of being hugged or cuddled. Crafted to be around 10 per cent of your body weight, our non-toxic, environmentally-friendly blankets are filled with specialty glass beads dispersed across seven layers.
When under the blanket, the comforting weight triggers the release of chemicals in the brain that are related to feelings of happiness and calm, resulting in an overall sense of rest and relaxation. This helps us settle down faster and sleep more deeply.
Why invest in a weighted blanket for adults?
Adults are under constant pressure, whether that comes from their boss, their family, their friends, the pile of bills building up on the kitchen counter – the list goes on. Finding the time to relieve built-up stress is vital if we are to remain happy, healthy, and vibrant.
Weighted blankets for adults can provide a much-needed sense of relaxation. They can assist with tension release, mindfulness, and, perhaps most critically, sleep.
Remember, you cannot pour from an empty cup. Providing for others starts with looking after ourselves. A weighted blanket delivers a whole host of incredible benefits – benefits that encompass stress relief, reduced anxiety, improved focus, insomnia support, and more.
The benefits of a weighted blanket for kids
Adults aren’t the only ones that struggle with stress, anxiety, and poor sleep quality. Kids, too, grapple with these issues, and the effects can be far-reaching.
There are many significant benefits to buying a weighted blanket for kids. Improved sleep can boost your child’s mood, promote positive behaviour, and help them focus in the classroom.
