Trouble sleeping? These new blankets will help you doze off easily.
Written by Liam O'Neil on Oct. 17th 2018
If you’ve ever had trouble getting to sleep you’ll know how frustrating it can be. Hours spent tossing and turning trying to drift off, looking at the time on the clock getting later and later.

The panic you feel when you get in bed and know this is going to happen is called onset insomnia and it affects up to one in three of us in the U.S. [1]

But now there’s a new craze sweeping the U.S. that solves the issue without having to take sleeping pills.

They’re called slumber blankets and they use something called deep touch stimulation [2] to help you drift off to sleeping naturally.

Used for years to help treat anxiety and autism they are just crossing over into the mainstream and being used for people with everyday sleep issues.
But do they actually work?
Leslie Kosco, 56, an oncology nurse in Indianapolis, thinks so.
"It gives me the feeling that someone is hugging me, and making me feel calmer," she says. "I think my sleep is better." The anxiety? "Well, you know," she laughs. [3]
She has no idea how the blanket works but is happy it does.

Raj Dasgupta, MD, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the University of Southern California and a spokesman for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, says the blankets may help people with chronic pain sleep better, as well as those with anxiety or depression. [3]
"It's like having the best hug for a long period of time," he says. And, he says, it may be ''a good alternative to life-long sedative hypnotic medications (sleeping pills) at night."
What does the science say about these slumber blankets?
Well they work using something called deep touch stimulation. They are filled with high quality glass beads and weigh around 10% of your body weight. This extra weight causes a number of things:

  •  It makes you think twice about moving and fidgeting whilst trying to sleep.
  •  It melts anxiety away.
  •  It helps you fall asleep more quickly…
  •  ...and stay asleep longer.
All this was backed up by a study published in 2015 [4] found that a weighted blanket lengthened average sleep time and decreased disruptive movement of people suffering from insomnia. 

Participants also reported that they "liked sleeping with the blanket, found it easier to settle down to sleep and had an improved sleep, where they felt more refreshed in the morning."
Surely there must be some negatives?
Well the reviews of these blankets online are all overwhelmingly positive. They truly do help people get to sleep easier, sleep for longer and sleep deeper.

The only a few downsides i can think of are that they are a almost addictively good, it certainly makes getting out of bed in the more challenging!

They're also quite bulky and (obviously) heavy. Folded up they are about 1 ft by 1ft cube.

In summary, they're an AWESOME way to get better sleep and reduce anxiety in a completely natural way! What's not to like?
