During those moments in our lives when we feel stressed or overwhelmed, we find ourselves revisiting the self-care practices and products that work best for soothing our overworked and over-tired minds. And from our current WFB (Work From Bed) posts, we’ve got weighted blankets top of mind to get that comforting job done.
Weighted blankets are designed for everything from simulating a hug to reducing stress and improving sleep — but, as an anxiety-management solution, they aren’t for everyone. At most, the heavyweight throws can serve as a mechanism that provides a feeling of support and calm by replicating deep-pressure touch; at least, it can be used as an extra snuggly layer to add to your couch or bed-scape. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the top-reviewed weighted blankets on the market according to customers who are soothed by them IRL — from handwoven velvety knits to glass bead-filled quilted styles.
And remember: If you are experiencing anxiety and are in need of crisis support, please call the Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour hotline at 1-775-784-8090.
