Traveling for summer? Try a weighted blanket or lap pad for a better trip!

It’s getting to be that time of year. The birds are singing, the weather is warming up and many are beginning to plan for their summer vacation. How many people travel each summer?

According to Statistic Brain (stats 2017) 45% of Americans take a summer vacation, there are over 657K trips made between Memorial Day and Labor Day and the average American travels 284 miles one way.

Common problems people combat during travel are anxiety/panic, stress, boredom and temper flare ups – parents with kids especially have to manage a balancing act while traveling.

Whether you are traveling by car, boat plane or train, travel with children, teens and adults will go more smoothly with a plan for regular breaks, snacks and stopping occasionally. Plane travel is can be especially stressful with children. Are there tools available to help with travel?

One thing that can help anyone (including children) is a weighted lap pad or weighted blanket. A weighted lap pad or a weighted blanket is a sensory product that can engage the person who is traveling. Weighted blankets are weighted with poly pellets that create an even weight, generally giving you a feeling of being grounded, it’s a worthy investment, and you might have a whole different trip with a calmer family along the way.
