Weighted Blanket Review

FullSizeRender-5

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am an anxiety sufferer, this means that I have tried almost everything I can think of in order to help deal with the symptoms of anxiety as well as panic attacks. I’ve tried such things as tea, other drinks, medications, meditation, coloring, ASMR videos, and so on. When I saw something called a weighted blanket on an ASMR video by Karuna Satori, I knew I needed to get my hands on one of those wonderful inventions.

I reached out to Lifetime Sensory Solutions, which were shown in Karuna’s video, and they were kind enough to send me a blanket. It’s extremely gorgeous, as you can see in the photo, and it’s super heavy, it’s the perfect thing to create a cocoon of safety when anxiety and panic attacks destroy my body.

Thousands of tiny beads are sewn into pockets in this blanket, and that’s what makes up the weight, the cool thing about this company is that they will create a blanket specifically for your needs. You can costumize the size, the weight, and the design on the blanket, how awesome is that? It would be such an incredible gift for anyone who could benefit from this product.

I found this blanket to be perfect on nights when I am having anxiety about life, and I also still get restless legs from when I was pregnant, and this blanket is the perfect solution. It caused enough weight on my legs to stop the restlessness, and it helped me to fall asleep faster.

This is not an every day blanket, because it is quite heavy, but it’s useful for those moments when you need comfort and the idea of a big hug sounds enticing. I definitely recommend this blanket, they even come in kids sizes! I guarantee this blanket will be a wonderful addition to your home.

  1. We use these blankets in my special needs school, as it really helps some of the children with autism. I’m glad you’ve found it helps you too. I haven’t heard of a company that does specialised designs, so that sounds great.

  2. So this may sound stupid, but I remember being in a pet shop once and saw “thunder vests” for dogs for when they get all anxious during storms and I thought “do they make them for adults?” I’m not scared during storms, but I have some major anxiety and this blanket sounds amazing. I’m going to have to check it out.
