Looking for that unique gift for Mother's Day? Why you should consider buying a weighted blanket for Mom or Grandmother.
Moms are so busy with running everything they could benefit from a weighted blanket for better sleep routines and downtime.
Grandmother could benefit from a lovely softly lightly weighted blanket, 3 to 4 lbs is optimal
A recent research study shows how many people benefit from weight to rest and sleep for longer periods at night here is an excerpt
"Abstract Insomnia is a common occurrence and can have a negative impact on physiological, psychological and social well-being. There is a need for simple, effective solutions to increase sleep quality. It has been suggested that weighted blankets and vests can provide a beneficial calming effect, especially in clinical disorders. Hence, we aimed to investigate the effects of a chain-weighted blanket on insomnia, using objective and subjective measures. Objectively, we found that sleep bout time increased, as well as a decrease in movements of the participants, during weighted blanket use. Subjectively, the participants 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. Overall, we found that when the participants used the weighted blanket, they had a calmer night’s sleep. A weighted blanket may aid in reducing insomnia through altered tactile inputs, thus may provide an innovative, non-pharmacological approach and complementary tool to improve sleep quality."
Flowers and candy are nice, but they will not last as long as the gift of better rest for your busy wife and mom.
