The Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket by Sharper Image
Ok, so I kept seeing ads for these weighted blankets that claim they can help you sleep better and reduce anxiety.
I have struggled with anxiety for most of my life, so naturally this caught my attention.
I began shopping around and reading online reviews before deciding on the one I eventually purchased.
The weight is suppose to be 8-12% of your overall body weight to apply an even amount of pressure. The pressure helps the production serotonin and melatonin; which helps you relax faster, sleeping deeper, and reducing stress and anxiety.
It arrived in the mail last Friday, very quick delivery time. Packaging was good. The box contained a bunch of information as well as a little informational insert.
First thought was "wow, this is super soft!" It says it is 100% polyester, but the velveteen material was incredible.
The weight is from tiny micro-beads that are evenly distributed throughout the blanket in a quilted pattern. Because the blanket needs to be a certain percentage of your body weight, it does come in 10 lbs, 15, 20, and 25 lbs. So be sure to get the right weight for you.
I was a little nervous that the sound of the micro-beads would be obnoxious and keep me up at night, but much to my surprise the blanket was incredibly comforting.
I do take melatonin nightly before bed, as I do have trouble sleeping. But not anymore! I have been falling asleep rather quickly and actually wake up feeling refreshed!
Chloe was a fan too and immediately asked if she could have her own.
They are currently running a special on their website that if you buy one, you'll receive a discount on the 2nd one. So definitely take advantage of that with Christmas right around the corner. This really is the perfect gift for just about anyone on your list this holiday season.
