Weighted blankets first came on the scene in the late 1990s. They were initially used to help calm children with autism and relieve stress and anxiety in people suffering from PTSD. Since then, weighted blankets have become increasingly popular. In today’s fast-paced, overly-anxious world, more and more people are snuggling up to the idea of weighted blankets to help reduce stress and induce quality sleep.
While some people may have initially viewed weighted blankets as a passing fad, the number of rave reviews about improved sleep quality and their ability to reduce stress can’t be ignored.
