The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety Disorder is a term used to describe a broad range of different anxiety-producing issues. While we all might experience a bout of anxiety from time to time, it becomes a disorder when the fear is prolonged over months, or even years, consistently or episodically.
It can be advantageous having a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® around to wrap yourself in when you begin to feel the onset of a panic attack, irritability, or a lack of concentration. The deep pressure of the weight furnishes a sense of security unlike a regular blanket.
Also, unlike a regular store-bought blanket, Mosaic Weighted Blankets® are natural sleeping aids. Anxiety can leave you feeling physically and mentally exhausted but still unable to fall asleep.
The added weight sewn into our blankets stimulates the production of serotonin which, in turn, converts to melatonin, the hormone that tells the body to sleep. Serotonin, often prescribed to those with anxiety, suppresses feelings of unease and boosts our mood. Then, as the melatonin level begins to increase, we feel tired and ready to fall asleep.
A Mosaic Weighted Blanket® is a great investment in your well-being if you’re prone to anxiety attacks.
