The Truth About Weighted Blankets
Ever had a masseuse cover you with a heavy blanket? Did you wonder what all the extra pounds were for?
Research over the years shows hat deep touch pressure helps to release serotonin in the brain (produces feelings of well-being and happiness but also plays a key factor in learning, memory, and other important functions of the brain). Weighted blankets are also used in hospitals for patients with autism and anxiety.
For me personally, ever since I was little I could never fall asleep without a big puffy blanket on me. No matter how hot it was, I just did not feel safe without some sort of weight on my entire body.
For the past month I’ve been trying the Comfitude therapeutic weighted comforters & blankets. I have to say, my sleep quality definitely has seen improvements. There are specific weighted areas within the comforter that activate pressure points within the body that help mood and relaxation. It’s pretty amazing! The plus side is that the blankets are all so cute and chic! Check them out below:
