Weighted Blankets for Anxiety

February 21, 2020 2 min read

Do you have problems falling asleep? Tossing and turning in bed thinking about your anxieties and worries? Weighted blankets are therapeutic blankets that weigh between 5 to 30 pounds. They are filled with plastic or glass pellets that make them heavy. The blanket gently presses on the user keeping them still and supported until morning. Also, this soothing pressure reduces cortisol the human body’s main stress hormone. Which encourages the production of serotonin, a hormone associated with feelings of happiness and well-being. It mimics the feeling of being swaddled. For many people who have disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, or autism, weighted blankets may provide a safe alternative to medication or other types of treatment. Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. Also, a feeling of fear or worried about what’s to come.

Some symptoms of anxiety might be:

  1. Increased heart rate
  2. Rapid breathing
  3. Restlessness
  4. Difficulty falling asleep
  5. Increased irritability
  6. Concentration difficulties
There are several exercises and actions to help a person cope with milder, more focused, or shorter-term anxiety disorders.

Including:

  1. Stress management
  2. Exercise
  3. Relaxation techniques
  4. Maintain a healthy diet
  5. Reduce caffeine intake
In conclusion, stress management techniques and meditation can help people with anxiety disorders calm themselves and may enhance the effects of therapy. Therefore, have you seen our Therapeutic Weighted Blanket? Whether for relaxation, anxiety, or therapy the Benefab® Weighted Blanket can leave you calm and revitalized. As a result, the weight of the blanket has pressure that pushes the sleeper further down into their mattress, triggering the release of serotonin and melatonin, hormones that calm and relax your body. As a bonus the blanket fabric is infused with far-infrared emitting minerals which keep muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments supple and relaxed and ultimately reducing pain and stiffness. It is weighted with evenly distributed glass beads with temperature regulating fabric. Learn more here! >>> https://benefabproducts.com/product/therapeutic-weighted-blanket/
