The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Cancer Anxiety Disorders
Over 11 million Americans are living with cancer. Anxiety is prevalent due to the stress of testing, waiting for results, being diagnosed, going through treatment, and wondering if it will come back.
While those who suffered from anxiety before being treated for cancer are prone to develop a disorder, many other patients and their families find coping difficult. Worrying about your condition can lead to sleeplessness, nausea, and can disrupt day-to-day life.
If you or someone you know feels anxious about a cancer diagnosis, a weighted blanket can help you feel secure and bring rest in a noninvasive, drug-free manner.
If you are experiencing tension throughout your body and emotional stress, the deep pressure touch given by a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® relaxes the mind and body. Pressure from the weight soothes aches and comforts those who need it most. Trouble sleeping due to worry can be reduced since the pressure acts as a stimulant for serotonin production. Serotonin becomes melatonin naturally, which is the body’s hormone to aid sleep. The portability of a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® allows you to take it with you to appointments to make the waiting tolerable and lift your spirits.
