My Calm Blanket is perfect for Sleep and More

In the last few years, weighted blankets have become increasingly more popular. If you aren’t sure what they are then this post is definitely for you as is if you want to see if this My Calm Blanket is the right one for you.




In a nutshell, a weighted blanket puts pressure on the body and clams a person down. The pressure of the blanket provides proprioceptive input to the brain and releases serotonin which is a calming chemical in the body. The exact weight you need depends on your weight. My Calm Blanket gives you a chart to help you determine which is best for you or the person in need.



My Calm Blanket as the benefits of: 
  •       Minimizes your need to move and fidget, by providing you with a calm state
  •       Melts your anxiety away, by giving you a true, grounded state
  •       Helps you fall asleep more quickly, most commonly in less than 5-6 minutes
  •       Stay asleep longer – wake up after the sun, and stave off mid-night wakeups





Since Mya is 15 and growing, we decided the 20 pound blanket was the best for her. She has some anxiety but mainly we wanted to use it for sleep. She has a huge problem falling asleep and staying asleep.



The very first day Mya used the blanket she said It was amazing. She said it helped her fall asleep faster than she had in a long time. It’s been a few weeks since we got it and she still will fall asleep faster than normal. We are working on staying asleep, but if she wakes up in the middle of the night she can get back to sleep faster.



The quality of this blanket is awesome. Also it’s super soft as it’s made of ultra plus minky. On the inside is made where you can wash. “Our inner blankets are made with breathable cotton filled with a superior glass bead which keeps the blankets thin, quiet, safe and fully washable. Unlike inferior polly-pellets which are detrimental to our environment, glass beads basically become sand once no longer in use.


If you are looking at weighted blankets, please do look at My Calm Blanket as it may be perfect for you. I know it’s been amazing for Mya.

  8. I toss and turn and can't calm down enough to get to sleep-sometimes till it's time to get up, so I'm exhausted all day. I really believe this is the ticket to restful sleep for me. I wanted lightweight, so I would have chose the 10 lb. That was perfect because it lined up with my weight as well. I can't wait to have a weighted blanket!
