Who needs weighted blankets the most?
Anyone who wishes to sleep better
If you have trouble getting to sleep, weighted blankets are a great way to help you feel cozy and comfortable at night so that your body can relax into a state of rest. They can even help with any pain issues you might be experiencing—the weight helps hold in heat and compress muscles, which can ease pain by reducing tension in the body.
People who experience anxiety and stress
Weighted blankets are an amazing tool for people who experience anxiety and stress. They have been shown to help people fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and feel more relaxed while they are sleeping.
The weighted blanket is made up of micro-glass beads that are evenly distributed throughout the blanket. These micro-glass beads create a feeling of pressure on your body and help you relax by simulating the feeling of being hugged or held tightly by someone else.
Helping with ADHD and autism (and other developmental disorders).
The benefits of weighted blankets for those with developmental disorders are well-documented: they can encourage children to sleep better and engage in calming activities like reading or listening to music.
They can help calm a restless body, reduce feelings of anxiety, and improve sleep troubles.
Anyone with high blood pressure and unstable heart rate
If you have high blood pressure, or if your heart rate is unstable, a weighted blanket can help. They are designed to provide pressure and massaging to help lower your heart rate, stabilize your blood pressure, and relax the body.
