The search for the perfect blanket is an ongoing task. Everybody is looking for that blanket that gives the perfect feeling of comfort and security. That is why weighted blankets have become quite the phenomenon over the past couple of years. More people are discovering how useful and beneficial weighted blankets are.
Weighted blankets use gentle pressure to provide a natural and comfortable sleep solution. They come in various weights to suit different needs. So, how do you choose the right weight for you?
Use Your Own Weight As a Guideline
Finding the perfect weight for your blankets depends on many factors and personal preferences. However, as a general rule, you can start by using your own bodyweight for guidance. Many experts state that weighted blankets should ideally be ten per cent of your total body weight. You should not find it difficult to roll over or move under weighted blankets.
If the weighted blanket feels too heavy or makes you feel trapped, go for a lighter one. Be aware though. Going for much lighter weighted blankets might not give you all the benefits you need. That is why you should try to find the perfect balance between comfort and pressure. After all, weighted blankets should provide gentle, deep pressure on your body.
Buying weighted blankets that are ten per cent of your body weight is just a general rule of thumb. Selecting the perfect weight depends highly on your personal preferences. Everybody is different. Some people prefer weighted blankets to be a bit heavier, others cannot handle the high pressure.
