My new weighted blanket helps my anxiety, sleep and restless legs and my kids calm down and fall to sleep easier with it. I think I need to by another one.
“Gravity is a premium-grade, therapeutic weighted blanket that harnesses the power of deep touch stimulation to gently distribute deep pressure across your body.
Engineered to be around 10% of your body weight, Gravity helps relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.
This increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep at the same time. All without ever filling a prescription.”
I use the cozy 20-pound blanket and could see adding more weight with the 25-pound blanket. It also comes in 15-pounds. Basically, I want this soft blanket to be on my lap at all times. I use it while I am sitting and writing on my computer, if I am watching TV and of course when sleeping.
The pressure helps my leg pain and restless feet and the weight is meant to increase ability to fall asleep faster. I’ve noticed my kids’ settle down and fall asleep much easier when I allow them to use my weighted blanket. My children also benefit from the proprioceptive input.
