What is a weighted blanket?
A weighted blanket is far from a “regular” blanket. It’s not just a blanket with a little more weight to it–it’s a blanket that has a true effect in children and adult’s lives.
Weighted blankets are engineered to increase serotonin and elicit a calming effect. This relaxes the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.
Weighted blankets also help to decrease cortisol levels which improves your mood and promotes restful sleep at the same time. Like we said, it’s not just your typical blanket.
