About weighted blankets
Weighted blankets are a scientifically proven solution to improve your sleep. They have been used for over 15 years to support people with autism syndrom, anxiety, and OCD because they help our nervous system to relax. They also are a natural weapon against sleep disorders like insomnia.
Weighted blankets have been scientifically proven to provide a much better sleep quality to the average sleeper. By increasing the number of hours slept and reducing the number of movements during the night you will feel less stressed and anxious during the day, while also noticing an overall increase in happiness and energy.
You will also regain that "ah-a!" feeling of sleeping well.
