The next time you’d like to catch some serious z’s, snuggle up with a weighted blanket and wake up on the right side of the bed every morning. If you have insomnia or sensory integration issues, a weighted blanket just might be the drug-free sleep aid you’ve been waiting for.
Applied pressure from a heavy blanket throughout the night has a relaxing effect which is soothing and calming. A weighted blanket will relax the nervous system and encourage dopamine and serotonin production, which later converts to melatonin to make you sleepy.
Although these hefty blankets are quite effective in resolving many sleep issues, they can be very expensive to purchase and ship. Making your own will not only save you money but you can also get creative and design a unique blanket with any color or pattern to match your own decor.
