This Blanket Will Help You Sleep Without Anxiety

The creators of this new blanket have raised more than $1.6 million on Kickstarter and people keep donating. So what is it so special about this blanket? Apparently, it is the key to helping you sleep through the night. It is called “The Gravity Blanket” and is a weighted bedspread with pockets of plastic pellets. It weights between 15 and 25 pounds. The reason why the blanket is so heavy is to distribute pressure all over the body. It touches pressure points that can relieve anxiety and stress and make you sleep well. 

The idea is simple: Take it to bed, and let it help you sleep well.  The product has collected a lot of success from the public, raising more than 77 times its Kickstarted goal just in a bit more than a week. The study behind it states that: “Those individuals who used the weighted blanket reported significantly greater reductions in distress and clinician-rated anxiety than those who did not.”
