Why A Weighted Blanket Can Actually Help You Sleep Better

What can a weighted blanket do to help you sleep?

1. The Hug That Lulls You to Sleep

Ever wished you could get a comforting hug right before bed? Well, that's exactly what a weighted blanket feels like. It provides a gentle, even pressure across your body, creating a sensation known as Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is like a warm embrace, promoting the release of "feel-good" hormones like serotonin and oxytocin. As you snuggle under your weighted blanket, these hormones can help you relax and reduce feelings of anxiety, setting the stage for a peaceful slumber.


2. Ditch the Tossing and Turning

Do you often find yourself tossing and turning at night, unable to get comfortable? A weighted blanket can be your secret weapon against restless nights. It can help improve sleep quality by reducing nighttime movement. The gentle pressure on your body helps your nervous system calm down, so you stay in one spot instead of restlessly shifting around. This means you can enjoy more uninterrupted, deep sleep and wake up feeling more refreshed.


3. Anxiety, Be Gone!

In today's fast-paced world, anxiety is a common visitor to our bedrooms. Whether it's work-related stress, daily life challenges, or even just an overactive mind, anxiety can keep you up at night. But fear not, the weighted blanket has your back! The gentle, constant pressure helps reduce the stress hormone cortisol and can make a world of difference in easing anxiety, allowing you to drift off to dreamland more easily.


4. Sleep-Boosting Comfort and Style

At Echor, we believe that quality sleep should never compromise on style. Our weighted blankets are designed with breathable fabric – The weighted beads are wrapped in soft and lightweight fabric layers for maximum comfort. They are stored in smaller compartments to prevent them from lumping on one side and ensure even weight distribution throughout your body.

It's also long-lasting as it comes with a washable duvet cover which helps keep your blanket clean and last longer. The cover also comes with internal ties to secure the blanket in place.
