Do you ever feel restless at bedtime or struggle to fall asleep? A weighted duvet feels like a warm, soft hug, and helps some people improve their sleep. A weighted duvet is an extra heavy duvet and with its high weight, it creates a pressure on the body that initiates a load of positive effects that can contribute to a better sleep quality.
The firm but gentle pressure that the weighted blanket creates, is called “Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation” (DPTS). Studies show that DPTS leads to an increased release of calming, “feel good” hormones. At the same time, the level of stress hormone drops and the level of the sleep hormone increases. In other words: a weighted duvet can increase the sense of well-being and make it easier to fall asleep.
