Weighted blankets, also known as gravity blankets and anxiety blankets are definitely game changers. Weighted blankets hit main stream media a few years ago and since them have become much easier to get your hands on. Not sure what the benefits are? weighted blankets are great for restless and anxious sleepers. Studies have shown that the extra weight prevents excessive movement throughout the night, thus allowing you a better nights sleep and enabling you to remain in deep sleep longer.
Many anxious individuals also benefit from the additional weight. Since the blanket offers deep pressure simulation it can help in alleviating anxious thoughts or feelings. For many individuals the extra weight provides a more calming and secure nights rest.
Now on to the reason you need this specific weighted blanket. If you have seen a weighted blanket before many look identical, dark toned blankets with a quilted pocket design which insure the weights do not gather in one location. However Bearaby’s has just released a weighted blanket like no other. The Napsicle the limited edition pop-inspired weighted blankets.
These blankets are made from 100% organic cotton and come in three weights, 15 lbs, 20 lbs and 25 lbs. How do you determine the correct weight for you? Easy, your blanket should be roughly 10% of your body weight. For example if you weight 150 lbs then you would choose the 15 lb blanket. If you fall between two sizes they recommend going up to the larger weight. Each blanket is hand knitted so final size and weight can vary.
