The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Mental/Physcial Tension
Tension, whether mental or physical, crops up from time to time in our lives when we find ourselves in stressful situations. A difficult project at work, a failing relationship, financial troubles, or a medical condition can all bring emotional and physical tension.
If prolonged, tension can lead to other ailments like muscle aches and insomnia. When telling yourself to just relax doesn’t work, using a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® can assist in tension relief as you need it.
Utilizing deep pressure touch stimulation (DPTS), weighted blankets help by signaling your body to release negative thoughts and naturally aid sleep. A gentle pressure from the customized weight sewn into your blanket works like a massage would in soothing muscles in your body.
You can even control where you place the pressure by draping it over a particularly sore area or simply laying it over your entire body for even distribution.
Sleep comes easier when the pressure stimulates serotonin production and converts to melatonin, our body’s natural sleep-inducing hormone. You’ll be thankful that you invested in a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® for those times in your life that challenge your endurance.
