Should you get a weighted blanket? That’s the question I kept asking myself as I saw countless articles, blog posts and testimonials swearing by them. I chalked it up to being the latest fad, after all, who would want a heavy blanket draped over them when they were feeling anxious? It wasn’t until a friend of mine shared her experience with weighted blankets in a Facebook post that I decided to give it a try. I did a little bit of research and saw the major (natural) benefits of weighted blankets. Not only are they known to help ease anxiety, but they’ve been known to help with autism, ADHD, Insomnia and even Fibromyalgia. Granted, the blanket doesn’t work in place of medication, but it helps to relax your muscles, ease your mind and centre you and if you know me, you know I’m all about that.
I picked up a blanket from the brand Weighted Idea on Amazon. I admit, they’re on the pricey side but I absolutely do not regret my purchase at all! Check out my full review in my video and let me know your thoughts about weighted blankets in the comment section!
