“It feels like a hug!”
Weighted blankets make it feel like someone’s holding you without having to actually be near anyone. “This blanket feels like you’re receiving the most comforting hug without feeling constrained and hot”
Improve sleep quality
When you’re stressed, your heart beats too quickly. When this happens, lowering your heart rate can lead to overall feelings of calmness. Pressure calms you by activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which lowers your heart rate when you’re stressed. A lower heart rate leads to the overall feeling of calmness that the blanket provides.
A weighted blanket uses “pressure therapy” — using a calm-inducing amount of pressure on your entire body, similar to the feeling of being hugged, swaddled, stroked, or held.
They have a calming effect
A weighted blanket is a safe way to lower your stress level and help you reach a relaxed state. The “relaxed state” results from serotonin production, which is necessary to release melatonin – the sleep hormone, which helps determine when we go to sleep and wake up based on our circadian rhythm.
Deep Pressure Touch
Deep pressure touch triggers the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, which are the two major feel-good hormones for your brain. Both these beneficial compounds can combat stress, depression, and anxiety, giving you an emotional pick-me-up after a quick snuggle session.
Information for you
The general rule of thumb is to go for 8% – 13% of your body weight, so someone who weights 70 kilograms should get a 7kg weighted blanket.
For the first few nights, you may feel it is too heavy or too light-weight. Getting used to a weighted blanket takes about 2-7 days.
