Weighted Blanket Review with Life Hacks: Like Straight Jackets on Steroids

amazon sale weighted blanket

One of my best friends told me I wasn't living my best life if I didn't have a weighted blanket, so I jumped on the weighted blanket bandwagon. I have occasional night terrors, so I figured what the heck? I found a great deal with a one-time coupon, and I purchased a 20-pound cooling weighted blanket. I was so excited, and then I tried it. 

I'm not sure if it is my incessant need to be in control, my innate desire to not be touched while I'm sleeping, or the thought that I may not be able to break out into a full-out run when I have a night terror, but a weighted blanket just isn't for me. The one thing I did like, though, is its cooling ability. The glass beads really do work to keep the blanket cool, and even though it's currently 20 degrees out, I have an appreciation for staying cool at night.

Now, the one thing I know is that I am an anomaly. There is a science behind the weighted blanket, and for most people it is life-changing for the better. Once they've discovered the gentle hug of a weighted blanket, they vow to never be without one. People have difficulty describing the pure bliss. They instinctively know they have been waiting their entire life to feel this good.

Its gentle pressure is proven to help children and adults with anxiety, autism, and attention difficulties, and I've heard stories of it helping calm restless leg syndrome and improving night terrors. I'm sure I'm one of the only people alive who experiences increased anxiety when I put it on, so although I am retiring my weighted blanket, I know it is proven to be effective for many, many people, as well as for many pets, so I have to highly recommend it. 

It is important to consider the weight of the blanket you purchase, and maybe that's where I went wrong. Here are some general guidelines to use:
Make sure you either purchase your weighted blanket with a duvet cover, or you buy a duvet cover separately. You can find them fairly inexpensively on Amazon. The point is to make your life easier by throwing the cover in the washing machine and dryer. It will save you time in between hand-washing and line-drying the actual blanket.
