Trouble sleeping? Take advantage of this sale on the Calm Embrace Weighted Blanket
Could your tossing and turning at night be solved by switching your blanket? Health professionals think so.
According to Penn Medicine, the pressure of weighted blankets can help put your nervous system into “rest” mode, helping reduce side effects of anxiety such as increased heart rate and heavy breathing, and giving you an overall sense of calmness. If you’re having trouble falling asleep at night, it might be investing in one of these heavy throws.
At first glance, weighted blankets look like any ordinary plush throw. But the difference is that these blankets are evenly-filled with medical-grade microbeads that make the blanket noticeably heavy (typically around 10 percent of your body weight). The result is a throw that feels similar in essence to receiving a hug.
One such blanket that does just that, and at an affordable price, is the Calm Embrace Weighted Blanket. This buttery-soft throw is filled with 15 pounds of lead-free, medical grade glass nanobeads to aid your brain’s release of serotonin (the feel-good chemicals) and melatonin (chemicals that help you sleep) so that you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. This light gray blanket also comes with a dual-sided duvet cover already attached to the blanket, meaning it’s ready to be used right out of the box.
Typically, the Cushion Lab Calm Embrace Weighted Blanket is priced at $249, which is about average for weighted blanket options of its caliber. But currently the product is on sale for nearly 44% off of its original price tag, making its final price an affordable $139.
