Do Weighted Blankets Feel Like a Hug

There is nothing more comforting than wrapping yourself up in a cosy blanket, after a long day at work. It can feel like getting a warm hug. This is just what many people are looking for. That is why weighted blankets have become extremely popular over the past few years.

Many people compare sleeping under a weighted blanket to getting hugged. They say the weighted blanket helped them relax and sleep better. Weighted blankets are like regular covers. However, they are filled with glass beads or plastic pellets to make the blanket heavier. This evenly distributed extra weight is where all the magic happens.

Here is why, a weighted blanket feels like a hug:

Calming Effect

Just like a comforting hug, your weighted blanket will help you get calmer. When placed on the body, the extra weight of the blanket helps settle your nervous system. The same “deep pressure” technique has been used in therapeutic sessions for years.

Sleeping under a weighted blanket reduces the levels of cortisol in the body. Cortisol is the hormone that helps your body respond to stress. It sets the fight or flight mode. That is why, when the cortisol levels get too high in the body, you will feel more anxious. A weighted blanket will help you control your anxiety and stress. You will be able to get deeper, uninterrupted sleep.

Sense of Security

Toddlers have always used their blankets to help them feel more secure. Nowadays, adults are doing the same with weighted blankets. The firm pressure of your weighted blanket can induce the release of oxytocin in your body. This hormone stimulates the feeling of well-being and security. That is why people feel more secure under their weighted blankets.

Known also as gravity blankets, your weighted blanket will secure your body in one place. This will provide you with a soothing sensation. It is just like being hugged. All this will help you fall asleep faster under your weighted blanket.

Cocooning Feeling

Just like babies, we all feel safer when we are firmly wrapped in a blanket. This “smushed” feeling will help you relax and sleep deeper. That is exactly what a weighted blanket offers. Lying under a weighted blanket will give you a ‘cocooning’ effect, just like being held tightly.

The extra weight will make you aware of your body movements. As a result, you will toss and turn less at night. This will help you sleep better and wake up feeling more energized. That is why many people rely on their weighted blankets to help them sleep better every night.
