How weighted blankets can lower stress and improve your mood
1. Engages your touch nerve fibers.
When you grab an object, you engage thousands of touch nerve fibers that send a message through the nerves, and spinal cord, to the brain. Your brain regulates your sensory system, so your fight-or-flight feelings (stress, anxiety, etc.) and rest-and-relaxed moods. With touch, we can help the brain self-regulate this system better.
2. Broad pressure all over your skin.
Your body is full of nerve endings in your skin. When you put on a weighted blanket, it applies a broad pressure all over your body, overstimulating your touch nerve fibers all at once, as well as your joints and muscles. For example, say you get an intense itch from a mosquito bite. You can scratch the area and that takes away the itch for a bit by overwhelming your nerve endings that are causing the itch.
3. Lowers your stress response .
Broad pressure produces a calming effect in the brain that lowers your stress response, the same way that going for a walk triggers a positive feeling. As a result, you're more calm and relaxed, which can lead to better sleep and lift your mood. Apart from that, we don’t know what chemicals are being released by the brain. How it works is complex, and all you have to know is that it does work and that you will feel better.
Our journey is personal
I suffered from a mild brain injury, anxiety, pain and PTSD, after a car accident in 2016. My normal changed overnight. Everyday tasks suddenly became a challenge like chewing food, reading, washing the dishes, and sleep.
One day at treatment, my therapist suggested weighted blankets for it's calming benefits. I gave it a try and decided to turn my tragic event into something positive and help other people find ways to heal naturally so you can rely less on prescription and over-the-counter drugs. I can’t wait for you to give it a try and experience the benefits first-hand.

Choosing a weight
Selecting your weight, comes down to your personal preferences and how much weight you feel when you use a weighted blanket, will feel different to each person. Two people that are both the same height and 170 lbs, may prefer two different blankets, one may like a 22 lbs blanket, and the other may find it too heavy and prefer a 17 lbs blanket.
Choosing a weighted blanket that is 10 percent of your body weight is a good starting point for most people but it’s not a key factor in choosing the amount of weight you may prefer.

If you’re stressed and looking for more calm, go for a moderate pressure. If you suffering from insomnia, anxiety, or have an active nervous system, go for a heavy pressure.
When in doubt, always go for the lowest weight or pressure for you, so it doesn’t feel too heavy and you can still enjoy all the calming benefits.
