Weighted blankets are a new craze and it seems everyone has one or is debating buying one. Weighted blankets are expensive, but a great investment for anyone who has trouble sleeping. They provide so many benefits.


There are many different types of weighted blankets, as well as different brands, sizes, weights and more. If you are looking to purchase a weighted blanket, look at all the differences and find the right one for you. The weight should be about 10 percent of your body weight.


Weighted blankets are beneficial for people who have anxiety, as the weight makes you feel relaxed and like you are being hugged by someone. Weighted blankets also help relieve stress.


If your body feels achy or sore, the weighted blanket can help, too. My dad works on his feet all day and comes home and uses the weighted blanket. He says it helps his aches and makes him feel better. And I swear my weighted blanket helps me sleep at night.
