It works amazing! My girlfriend has PTSD and it's one of the best sleeps shes had in a year! Highly recommend it for anyone with any of the problems they listed, right from anxiety to depression to insomnia. It's worth the money, only thing I suggest is that if your have a more severe case of any of the things I mentioned then get a heavier blanket. Got a 15lbs for the 130lbs girlfriend she wants a 25lbs now.
I suffer from a anxiety disorder and have frequent panic attacks. This blanket helps me SO MUCH! I had been searching with my husband for a decent weighted blanket and I could not be happier with this purchase.
Being a sufferer of anxiety and never sleeping all that great, this weighted blanket, in the simplest sense, keeps me from moving around, mainly because it's so darn heavy. I guess, it does its job. I'm happy about that.
This blanket does work. I use it for anxiety and it calms me quite quickly. I'm interested to see how it will be during warmer months. ...if too warm or not. The quality itself is very good and I haven't had any trouble with the 'sand' inside moving around unevenly.
I've been searching for goose down duvets and wool blankets since I was a child, anything I could pile on my bed to give that weighty, tucked-in feeling. So when I discovered "weighted blankets" were a thing, I had to try it.
I'm really impressed with the quality for the cost, the seams are sturdy on both the edges and the quilting, the fabric is durable and tightly woven without feeling overly thick, and no beads or sand has leaked out. I went for the 60x80 25lb blanket knowing it was just for me and its nice and roomy. If you plan to share with a partner I would definitely size up or buy two, though. I also sleep quite warm, so I was very happy that this blanket was sufficiently heavy without making me sweat all night.
This is my first weighted blanket and I've only had it about two weeks, but so far I would say this has definitely helped with my quality of sleep. I sleep longer and even the nights where I can't sleep longer I feel more rested.
My plan was to just try this blanket out and if I didn't like it, return it. But I'm keeping it. Well worth the price.
I love this blanket - Makes me feel so secure. I usually like to have lots of weight on me as I sleep but it always gets too hot - but not with this blanket! I can stay cool with all the weight I need! Only issue with it is that it is dry clean only.
First 3-4 nights I wasn't sure about it but once I got used to it I began to love it. My fitbit ionic tracker shows a significant increase in sleep quality since I got it. My REM sleep in particular shows frequently at double the amount I was getting before the blanket. Not sure if it will be too warm for me in the summer but otherwise I am extremely happy with the purchase. I weigh 204 pounds so I thought about getting the 25 pound one, but I took the 20 pound one and I feel like it was the right choice for me. The 25 pound one might have been a bit too heavy.
Love this blanket! It's the proper weight as advertised and shipped fast. Material is soft enough to use on its own, or you could also use a duvet cover. You feel such a sense of calm and security when using this blanket I would highly recommend it for anyone with anxiety.
