Sleep Soundly With A New Weighted Blanket

Do you struggle to get a good night’s rest? Are you waking up in the morning still tired? You’re not alone. Sleep can be an elusive time for many, which is why introducing the powers of a weighted blanket into your life could change the way you sleep, for the better.

Weighted blankets offer comforting pressure that brings a multitude of benefits not only to the quality of your sleep but also your health and wellbeing. Read on for all you need to know about these amazing sleeping aids.

How Do They Work? 

Not really sure what all the fuss is about, think of a weighted blanket in the same way as a hug or a baby’s swaddle. Weighted blankets take inspiration from a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation which relaxes your nervous system. It uses firm and controlled pressure to induce a feeling of calm, making it easier to fall asleep.   

In more scientific terms, the blanket’s deep touch pressure stimulates serotonin, a chemical that regulates sleep, which helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and feel rested in the morning. Sounds pretty good, right?

If you're worried about having to give up your peaceful sleep when summer rolls around, there's no need! Weighted blankets can be used year-round. If you think you’ll get too hot, open a window, or wear breathable clothing to bed. If you have the option, you can also turn on a fan or air-conditioning. You can feel confident snuggling under your blanket in summer and getting the restful sleep you need.

When it comes to picking your weighted blanket, it's actually pretty easy. The general weighted blanket guidelines for adults is 10 percent of your own body weight. Usually, a weighted blanket should be between 7 to 9 kilos for adults.
