I am not a medical/health professional. These are only my opinions, not medical advice.

All over the Internet, you will find people raving over weighted blankets. I wanted one for months but never got around to purchasing one. Thankfully, my husband bought me one for Christmas! It”s been a few months so I figured now was the perfect time to give it a review. If you haven’t jumped on the weighted blanket bandwagon yet, now is the time!

Let me just say: the hype is 100% real. I sleep with my Therapedic Weighted Blanket almost every night and I am obsessed. I have the 12 pound throw blanket. After unwrapping it, Josh told me that he had kept the receipt in case I wanted to get a different size because there are so many. Weights range from 8lbs-25lbs, and you can get a throw or comforter size. I like to make my bed every day, so I absolutely did not want a comforter size because I feel like that would be a pain. Plus, I just don’t like to share! Most blankets also come with a removable cover, so it’s quick & easy to toss in the wash or to change along with your room decor.


1: Eases insomnia
2: Improves sleep quality
3: Reduces anxiety
4: Comforting – feels like a hug

As someone who struggles with anxiety, I can attest to the fact that my blanket really does help. My mind is constantly going a mile a minute, and this is amplified at bedtime. When I’m feeling the least bit overwhelmed, I lay in bed for hours trying to fall asleep, and since sleeping with a weighted blanket, that time has been cut in half. I feel calmer, relaxed, and safe, and I don’t toss and turn as much. I also no longer have to use melatonin supplements to fall asleep anymore which is another plus!


Yes. 1000% yes.
I have never found something that reduces my anxiety as quickly as my weighted blanket. There are options at every price point, but if you can afford to invest in one, do it. If you’ve ever been curious about weighted blankets, go ahead and take the plunge – you won’t regret it!
