Getting a good nights sleep is something that I have always struggled with. I am definitely a mover and twister in my sleep and it makes me feel so tired and weary in the morning and hard to start my day. I had talked to my doctor about this who recommended taking melatonin to try and help me sleep, but it only made it harder for me to wake up in the morning.
That is when a friend of mine suggested sleeping with a weighted blanket to help me get a steadier, smoother night of sleep. Shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond, I picked up a Therapedic® Reversible Weighted Blanket and gave it a try.
More About Therapedic®
Therapedic International was founded in New Jersey in 1957 as a single mattress factory producing mattresses and foundations in Garwood, NJ. Soon thereafter, the company began licensing other mattress factories to produce product under the Therapedic label & guidelines. Patented products and exclusive features, combined with a consumer-friendly brand name, helped propel the company into prominence as a top ten mattress brand in America. Therapedic became one of the first mattress companies to licensee its brand name internationally. And today, Therapedic has over fifty worldwide licensees, all manufacturing quality products under the Therapedic brand.
More About Weighted Blankets
Weighted blankets help provide a deeper sleep and allow you to wake up feeling refreshed, They have warm, comforting pressure that makes you feel like you are being gently hugged as you lull off to a blissful night’s sleep.The added weight in the blanket helps keep you steady and give you support to sleep peacefully, comfortable and relaxed.
This weighted blanket is reversible, allowing soft, soothing touch on either side. The exterior shell is removable and machine washable, for clean comfort night after night. The inner blanket is what contains the weights that are a combination of glass pellets and polyester fill. The quilted design of the inner blanket keeps the pellets evenly distributed and avoid over-weighting one side or another. These weighted blankets are available in varying weights from 8-25 lbs. and 40″x 50″ (Small) – 60″ x 80″ (XL). The come in three soft colors to match most decor including grey, navy and taupe. They also come with a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
As a taller, heavier person, I opted for a 20 lb. weighted blanket to assure that I have full coverage through the night. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made getting a weighted blanket to help me sleep more soundly.
How to Choose a Weighted Blanket
The best way to choose a weighted blanket is to calculate about 10% of your own natural body weight. Thus, if you weigh 120 lbs, you would sleep best with a 12 lb. weighted blanket. This works best as you are less likely to knock off your weighted blanket in the middle of the night, as you would with a general quilt or comforter.
I could not be happier with the use of my weighted blanket. Over the last several weeks, I have slept so much better, awaken feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. Life is stressful this time of year, with working full time, planning for a wedding next year and taking care of my family, I don’t want a restless night sleep to hinder me being able to be the best ME I can be each day.
