The past two years have been seriously stress-inducing. As we adjust to this new normal, we still sometimes feel on edge. We’ve tried meditating, exercising and journaling, but those self-care practices don’t always succeed in calming Us down. All we want in moments of isolation is a warm embrace from a loved one. Now you can get that same sensation on your own!
Research suggests that weighted blankets may contribute to stress relief and healthy sleep habits.* According to Healthline, weighted blankets may benefit people with anxiety, insomnia and other conditions. The extra weight mimics a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation to relax the nervous system and reduce symptoms of anxiety or depression.
