For many of us, stress and anxiety are components of our everyday lives. Unfortunately, this stress and anxiety can cause insomnia and an increase in cortisol levels. Have you heard of a weighted blanket? If not, your life is about to change!
Weighted blankets have been scientifically proven to help you go from stressed and anxious to calm and ready for sleep. Created to help patients suffering from sleep anxiety, ADHD, OCD, Sensory Processing Disorder and more, these magical blankets help to naturally lower cortisol levels.
How does a blanket do this, you ask? When you sleep under a blanket that is around 7-12% of your body weight, it creates an effect called Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation. This DTPS reduces cortisol and increases serotonin and melatonin to help you happily drift off to sleep. You’ll find it easier to settle down and fall asleep which will leave you refreshed and rested in the morning.
The luxurious weighted blankets that we carry are perfect for all seasons. In the winter, they’ll keep you cozy and warm and in the summer cool and comfortable when you remove the outer shell and sleep with the inner blanket.
