How Dr. Hart’s Weighted Blanket Combats Anxiety
Anxiety disorders have plagued the current generation. Up to forty million people from the United States are affected by such disorders. The symptoms range from mild to severe. Anxiety affects every aspect of life, from day-to-day proceedings to the quality of your sleep. Thankfully, anxiety is very treatable. Here’s how Dr. Hart’s Weighted Blanket combats anxiety and why it’s the best weighted blanket for anxiety.
Deep Pressure Stimulation
Deep pressure stimulation or DPS is the result of a heavy weighted blanket, coupled with the force of gravity, pressing against your body as you sleep. DPS is any type of pressure applied to the body to stimulate calmness from the nervous system. Upon the application of DPS, the body shifts from running its sympathetic nervous system to parasympathetic nervous system. The former is a more alert setting while the latter is a more relaxed state.
DPS helps your body feel calmer and more relaxed. You’ll notice the effects as soon as you wake up. This can help mitigate your anxiety symptoms., especially if used consistently. You’ll also notice other effects like increased happiness, better social interactions, improved focus, and more. Overall, this will make you feel more grounded.
Do you live alone? Do you miss the comfort of having someone else sleep beside you? Don’t worry because those feelings are totally normal. In this pandemic setting, we’re all still highly discouraged from going out of the safety of our homes. It might take a while for things to resume to normal, which means that you might have to bear with sleeping alone for a while.
Weighted blankets offer a unique and soothing feeling that mimics a human hug. The micro plush cover also feels soft against the skin. The combination of the two will make you feel calmer and more relaxed, thus combatting your anxiety symptoms to help you sleep.

Some individuals are hesitant to get weighted blankets because they’re afraid of the stifling heat they might experience throughout the night. This can worsen their anxiety symptoms and prevent them from getting a restful night’s rest. Such isn’t the case for Dr. Hart’s weighted blankets. Firstly, the weighted blankets are stuffed with patented DreamBeads that allow good air circulation. Secondly, you have the option to use Dr. Hart’s 100% Organic Cotton Duvet Cover instead of the microplush cover. The former gives a cooling effect that will prevent your body from overheating in your sleep.
