A Weighted Blanket That Can "hug you" And Allow You to Evaluate
Weighted blankets are on the market, sparking the love of sleep-impaired people in many big cities like China and the United States. Weighted blanket manufacturers are already in short supply, with many orders scheduled until the spring of 2019.
When it comes to dealing with anxiety and stress, it can often feel like you're completely alone in the world.
No matter how much you try to calm yourself down, it's hard to express what you're feeling to anyone, and instead you'd rather just be held tight in a cozy embrace.
Something about the strength around you and the calming external reminders that there is more than what's going on in your head helps your heart rate slow back down and your mind to relax.
The problem is, it's not like there is someone who can follow us around all the time, hugging us until we are calm. But lately, a new trend in self-care has taken over and it's perhaps the best invention ever.
They are called weighted blankets and they've been proven to be very effective to help manage anxiety.
It actually has two main benefits. First, it helps keep people from tossing and turning at night, letting you get the rest they need, and second, people who have used them claim it makes them feel calmer and less anxious because it does actually feel like a big hug.
The general rule for weighted blankets is to get one that is about 10% of your body weight, but the only downside is that they can be expensive. But luckily, this Black Friday, there are a few deals to help you take advantage of this stress-reducing technique.
The weighted blanket has fallen far short of its peak, and the Chinese market has just begun in 2018, and the U.S. market needs more time to prove its influence. Countries such as Russia and Japan are also springing up sleeping blankets.
