A Weighted Blanket That ‘Hugs’ You, Helps You Relax And Fall Asleep Faster
By Dorothy Tan, 28 Apr 2017
It may sound a little odd, but a blanket that is a little heavy can do wonders for your mind and body—the Gravity weighted blanket “harnesses the power of deep touch stimulation” to improve mood and promote better sleep.
Stimulating the feeling of being held or hugged, this therapeutic blanket evenly distribute pressure across the body and serves as a natural stress reliever—by increasing levels of serotonin and melatonin, while reducing cortisol levels, it helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
A user who has tried the blanket have described it as “Advil PM for your whole body”—another one claims that it took it just seven minutes to fall asleep when it usually takes 45 minutes.
To suit the user’s unique anatomy, Gravity comes in three weights—15, 20, and 25 pounds. The blanket should be around 10% of your body weight for it to offer just the right comfort.
Made of ultra-soft micro plush fleece on the outside and 100% cotton on the inside, Gravity blankets are filled with High Density Plastic Poly Pellets that are odorless, non-toxic and soft to provide a nice texture.
Find out more about the gravity blanket on its Kickstarter page.
