Why do you need a weighted blanked?
According to scientists, the benefits of hugging go beyond that well-known warm feeling you get when you hold someone in your arms. Studies have shown that hugs can boost serotonin and dopamine- the two feel-good chemicals in the brain, as well as the hormone oxytocin also known as the “cuddle hormone”. Their levels rise up when we hug, touch, or sit close to someone else. You now may wonder why you need to know these undeniable facts but here’s the thing- a weighted blanket is a lot like getting a firm but gentle hug. We all need that from time to time, right? What’s even better is that you can get the benefits of it just about anywhere, from the sofa to your bed, while drinking your morning coffee or watching your favorite TV show. Considering the current pandemic situation with most of us having been mandated to self-quarantine in our homes, being alone can be a little daunting. So, what better time to invest in a temporary substitute for the hugs of your beloved one than now?
Weighted blankets provide this firm but at the same time gentle pressure while you are sleeping and thus promoting the release of serotonin which regulates and improves your sleep. Besides having a lot of blissful “Zzz-s”, simply wrapping yourself around with a weighted blanket can reduce anxiety, help you fight back against stress, and even boost your mood! Who knew how many health benefits a simple blanket can have?
We all have these days when nothing seems to go right. The kind of day where you accidentally oversleep, get stuck in the traffic on the way to work or school, spill coffee on your new white shirt, then go home to a messy room, feeling tired and being on your last legs… you get the idea. But picture this- although the chaos surrounding you, what you need in a moment like this one is a glass of wine (or two), delicious dinner, and of course- your weighted blanket to unwind and de-stress after the long day. The breathable material and the 7 layered design will improve the quality of your sleep, promote calmness, and make your stay in bed long-awaited pleasure for your senses.
