If you are a troubled sleeper, you may have heard of the latest insomnia trends: weighted blankets.
Weighted blankets are heavier than blankets that people usually buy. They are typically 4 to 30 pounds in weight and are heavier than regular quilts or duvets. For many people with anxiety, insomnia, or autism, aggravated blankets can provide a safe alternative to medications or other types of treatment. They can also be used to supplement existing therapies. Studies have shown that aggravating blankets can help alleviate symptoms and manage these diseases.
