During overwhelming moments in our lives, something as small as revisiting a self-care practice or soothing product can go a long way in providing support. Weighted blankets offer a myriad of such benefits, from simulating the compression of a hug to stress reduction 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.
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.
