What is a Weighted Blanket

A weighted blanket is a blanket designed to weigh more than other covers. Weighted blankets help people with mental health illnesses and developmental disorders sleep better and feel healthier during the day. Although they may resemble a regular cover, they are therapy tools that have a filler that adds weight on them. Our SnugCosy weighted blankets are glass-filled, with an evenly distributed weight. They provide you with the best quality of restful sleep and should weigh around 10 % of your body weight. Also, weighted blankets should fit your body and not your bed.

Luxury weighted blankets for adults

Weighted blankets are suitable for everyone, including children, teenagers, adults, or older people. Luxury weighted blankets for adults support individuals with Alzheimer's disease the same way they assist adults with a mood disorder, such as depression or bipolar disorder. In general, sleep disorders caused by mental health illnesses are not easy to manage and treat. When these two medical entities co-exist, they create a vicious cycle of bad or insufficient sleep and low quality of life. The following are some of the most prevalent mental health conditions in adults:

Specific phobia-Panic disorder-Social anxiety disorder-Post-traumatic stress disorder-Obsessive-compulsive disorder-Mood disorders-Various types of dementia-Generalised anxiety disorder-Sleep disorders

Sensory weighted blankets for kids

Children may also have to face sleeping problems, such as insomnia or nightmares. Anxiety as a symptom is quite common in little children and adolescents. It might be due to an anxiety disorder or a neuro-developmental one. Children that do not sleep well find it hard to focus their attention during the day, having difficulties at school. They might also find it hard to socialise and make or keep friends. Sleep problems in teens might lead to a decrease in school performance, isolation, and bursts of anger. Irritability during the day might also be a sign of insufficient sleep. Sensory weighted blankets for kids and adolescents might work as a therapeutic tool and provide them with a night of restful sleep. The following are some of the most prevalent mental health conditions and neuro-developmental disorders in children and adolescents:
