“So you’re telling me an all-night hug is supposed to help me sleep better?”
Yup. Thanks to Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS). DPS and weighted blankets were initially used to help individuals with autism and ADHD feel calmer, fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Over the years, word spread about the benefits of weighted blankets. Now they are used by people worldwide to help calm anxiety, sleep better, and a whole host of other great things.
See, DPS helps raise serotonin, your happy hormone, lower cortisol, stress hormone, and increase melatonin, your sleepy hormone. This is the precise magical formula your body naturally uses to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. But if you have trouble sleeping due to anxiety, stress, a racing mind, pain, or any other reason, the DPS delivered by weighted blankets can help your body reach its natural state of calm and sleepiness.
