What is Weighted blanket
What happens in your body when you wrap yourself up in a weighted blanket?
Your body perceives the feeling of being under a weighted blanket in a similar way that it would treat a warm hug from a loved one. So, what actually happens inside the body when you get under one of our blankets? First of all, your body can suppress the release of a hormone responsible for the feeling of stress, called cortisol, while at the same time releasing what’s known as “the happiness hormone” – serotonin, which can make you feel better instantly. Another hormone known to release while under a weighted blanket is oxytocin, also known as “the love hormone”. Hence you can feel a wave of relief and the feeling of cosiness. And finally, the release of melatonin (“the sleep hormone”) can ensure that you fall asleep faster and experience deeper sleep.
Allow your body to adjust
You should use your blanket according to your own personal needs. Still, to achieve the best results, you should allow your body to adjust to the weight of the blanket gradually. This will ensure that you have the best possible experience when using a weighted blanket.
