What is a Weighted Blanket?

A weighted blanket is a blanket filled with weighted materials – such as plastic pellets. These blankets can come in different sizes and weights. Most people use a weighted blanket for the calming effect it gives after being wrapped up in one.


Benefits of Weighted Blankets

It Lowers Stress

Stress plays a role in everybody’s life. Sometimes, even the smallest stressors can have a negative impact on our mental, emotional, and even physical health. Using a weighted blanket could help lower stress.


Reduces Restless Leg Syndrome

Patients with restless leg syndrome often complain about a tingling feeling or creeping sensation in their legs. This affects patients when they travel by plane or car but can often worsen when they lay in bed. Restless leg patients often use compression socks to help with the symptoms, but weighted blankets can also do the trick. Having the comforting feeling of weight on the patients’ legs helps reduce the symptoms.


They Help with Sensory Overload

Sensory issues can often lead to anxiety attacks. It is common for children with autism and adults suffering from anxiety. Anxiety attacks can often lead to emotional and behavioral turmoil. Placing or wrapping a weighted blanket over children and adults can have a calming effect and often feels like a hug.


Can Help Improve Sleep

If you are someone who constantly tosses and turns, keeping you awake, a weighted blanket could help. The deep tough pressure from a weighted blanket can boost your serotonin and melatonin levels. Serotonin helps you relax, and melatonin makes you sleepy. If both are at a high level, you can slip into a more restful sleep.


They Recreate a Hug

While it’s no secret that babies and children like to be hugged and cuddled, that warm feeling of hugs and cuddles never goes away. Even adults like the feeling the weighted blanket gives. It’s almost like you’re being wrapped in a warm, comfortable, bear hug.
