Using Weighted Blankets To Manage Stress

Mar 27, 2023

For a lot of us, as we grow older, many conditions can develop which disrupt our sleeping patterns. One of the more common conditions is Restless Leg Syndrome, which keeps us awake via the constant urge to move our legs at night. Left untreated, our sleeping patterns can become severely disrupted and the quality of life diminishes as we struggle to get a full night's sleep.

Did you know that you can use a weighted blanket for sleep stress and anxiety? In those moments before we hit the hay, the pressures and burdens of the day can often weigh heavy on our minds. However, a weighted stress blanket could be the perfect tool in your search for a peaceful night’s rest. In this article, you will learn about how stress impacts our lives, how a weighted blanket can help, and some stories from satisfied members of the YNM community who combated their stress levels with a stress-relieving weighted blanket.

The Impact Of Stress On Our Lives

With the mounting pressures of work, family, life, and balancing our daily routines—it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important—our health. But according to a study in 2017 by the American Institute of Stress, there’s more on our minds than just our day-to-day experiences.

Most Common Sources of Stress

Conducted today, we’re sure Covid-19 would be high on the list too. Unfortunately, how we cope with stress is a bigger concern. In this survey, they discovered that 1/3 of us tend to skip meals, 2/5 of us overeat or will eat unhealthy food, and 40% of us struggle to sleep as we just lay awake at night.

On the bright side, there are ways we can deal with stress healthily. The easiest thing we can do is hug it out! When we hug, the stimulation and experiences release chemicals in our brains which make us feel good. Touch is powerful. It’s why we touch ourselves when we’re anxious and under pressure. It’s why we embrace another when we’re upset or feeling lonely.

A YNM Weighted Blanket is like a constant hug!

Weighted Blankets work via deep-pressure stimulation. The blanket wraps around your body and triggers the release of chemicals in your brain. In no time at all, you will feel calmer and more relaxed.

Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s YNM user Deborah:

“These blankets are life-changing. I teach in a struggling Public School, and the stress involved is unbelievable. I have been chronically sleep-deprived for months. Of course this takes a toll on one’s health. I bought a 15 pound blanket based on my weight, and was amazed how quickly I was able to fall asleep. I slept throughout the night for the first time in a very very long time. I highly recommend this product for stress-related insomnia, and ask that you pray for teachers everywhere.” - Deborah

Her stress relief weighted blanket immediately impacted her ability to melt away the stress from her daily grind. As much as they can help users with insomnia or conditions like restless leg syndrome, weighted blankets for stress and anxiety are just as effective!

YNM user Rhonda also experienced near-instant results!

“I had such a rough day yesterday, but I was so lucky that my new blanket came in the same day. After a day of dealing with so much stress and anxiety, I came home, opened my package, and laid under this incredible blanket. It took approximately 15 minutes and I was fast asleep! Before I fell asleep, I could feel my anxiety slip away!” - Rhonda
