What is a weighted blanket?
A weighted blanket is a blanket that one can purchase to use for varying needs. The weight of the blanket depends on the size and even the needs of a person. For instance, a person that struggles with anxiety may find that at night they become restless.
The person’s legs at night move, they notice their heart rate accelerates and often moves to different positions until hours later falling asleep. The weighted blanket can provide a sense of pressure which works to relieve the bad or unwanted symptoms. The symptoms that can be reduced include restlessness, worry, feeling on edge, unwanted movement, and more.
