As someone who suffers with anxiety, I was very curious when I saw a blanket that is supposed to ease stress and anxiety, I wanted to know more.

According to the Gravity, Weighted Blanket Kickstarter page,

Though weighted blankets have been used in the medical community for many years now, the measurable health benefits have only recently begun to emerge in scientific studies. So far, the findings have been incredible.


Gravity uses the power of proprioceptive input (more commonly known as “deep touch pressure stimulation”), a well regarded therapeutic method that stimulates pressure points on the body linked to improved sleep, mood, and relaxation.


The result is a reduction in cortisol levels and an increase in serotonin production, which decreases heart rate and blood pressure.

Think of it like the anxiety vest for anxious dogs.

You can order one HERE!! Or, if you are feeling crafty, make one!
