Is a weighted blanket right for you?

Is a weighted blanket right for you?

Rest and mental health are integrally linked. Getting the sleep you need is a necessary part of leading a healthy, happy life. Sleeping well can boost your immune system, help prevent weight gain, increase productivity, and allow for better emotional regulation. Our four Milton mattresses come in different levels of firmness and include proven materials so that when you do lay down, you’re able to get the rest you need. If you find that anxiety from the day is creeping into your nightly routine, there are many mindfulness, meditation, and breathing activities you could try. A weighted blanket might also be strategy you could explore to find some inner peace. 

Weighted blankets contain plastic pellets, small ball bearings, and other objects in the fabric so that they feel significantly heavier than a traditional blanket or duvet. Modern weighted blankets often use a knitted design to increase breathability. While the research behind the health benefits of weighted blankets is still somewhat inconclusive, those who do enjoy them swear by them – as shown by the sales of weighted blankets soaring in recent years. Snuggling under one is meant to help calm feelings of anxiety and reduce insomnia. The even, consistent pressure on the body is purported to help ground the user in the moment and bring a sense of peace. Typical weights for these blankets range from 5 to 30 pounds. A useful rule of thumb if you’re searching for one is to get something around 10% of your body weight. 

Having the right mattress for you is a huge step forward when it comes to getting the rest you need. But we know that modern life can be stressful, and laying down on something cozy isn’t always enough to quiet down your thoughts. A weighted blanket coupled with your Milton mattress might be a combination worth exploring to revitalize your rest and bring a newfound sense of calm.
