Children to the Elderly, We All Can Benefit
If you're old enough to safely sleep with a blanket (not recommended for under age 3), you are the perfect age to enjoy the long list of benefits weighted blankets offer. Weighted blankets improve sleep quality, no matter your underlying health issues or age, and increase a sense of calm and well-being.
Perhaps, even in the heat of the summer, you find it uncomfortable to sleep without something on you. A sleeping net is a durable weighted blanket that offers these benfits and doesn't cause overheating. You can use it alone or paired with sheets, blanket(s), duvet cover, etc. It is the perfect (weighted) blanket all year long.
Our body naturally produces 50 known hormones. These hormones affect everything from digestion to behavior to how you feel throughout the day. The levels of these various hormones also work together in a yet to be fully understood dance.
Weighted blankets act as a form of Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS). When the weight of the blanket is placed on the body, it stimulates and activates the deep pressure touch receptors. This causes the body to produce oxytocin, serotonin and then in turn melotonin.
