Are weighted blankets worth it?

I’ve always been curious if replacing my comforter with a 15 lb blanket would help me sleep better. The people who use weighted blankets swear by them, but shelling out $100 to be crushed while sleeping?

I wasn’t really sold on the idea.

And then I was gifted one (thanks brother!) and will tell you that it totally makes a difference.

But how does it actually work? And are there differences that make one brand better than another?

In today’s episode, we dive into the science of weighted blankets, how pressure therapy works, and how to choose the correct weight for maximum benefit.
