A weighted blanket is a great tool for comforting someone that may suffer from a variety of emotional issues. It's like being wrapped up in a big giant bear hug without actually having to be hugged. Some people need the compression but do not like to be touched when having a moment of insecurity.
I’ve mentioned before how my husband and I suffer from different medical problems. I personally suffer from anxiety and depression. My husband has bipolar. There are many times when one of us is just overwhelmed and need to relax and decompress. The weighted blanket is perfect for this.
A weighted blanket can be beneficial for people that suffer from any of these:
- sensory processing disorders.
How does a weighted blanket actually help though?
- Helping you or your child sleep through the night
- Reducing anxiety and stress
- Easing restlessness and irritability in the elderly
- Preventing or short-circuiting a meltdown
- Improving focus
- Easing transitions
I love my weighted blanket. When I’m having a bad day emotionally, I will take a nap and curl up with my blanket. The extra weight is very comforting and it helps me to relax. I actually get the best sleep when I’m using my blanket.
SensaCalm's weighted blanket can be customized.
There are a variety of different fabrics you can choose from. I chose the Sapphire fabric pattern.
There are 5 different sizes to choose from:
There are weights you can choose from depending on the size you choose. Just to give you a size reference, my bed is a queen and the blanket I chose is full. My husband and I can not use this blanket at the same time. I chose this size on purpose because we are both blanket hogs. We each have our own blanket because of this.
The backing is customized as well. You can choose from colors from the gallery, supreme solids, or the same as the picture. This means the front and the back of the blanket will be the same.
You can order a matching duvet cover that will have snaps to keep it on the blanket. The option to purchase matching pillowcases exists as well. Do you want it monogrammed? Monograms are done inside a one block area, approximately 6” depending on the size of the blanket.
For Christmas Delivery on custom orders, order and pay by Dec 10 in the Continental United States, Dec 8 in Alaska, Hawaii, Dec 1 for International (arrival times on international not guaranteed).
