Recent research suggests that by snuggling up with a weighted blanket you can relieve stress and anxiety. Occupational therapists have long used these blankets to help kids with sensory issues, anxiety, and ADHD. They have since moved into the mainstream and become hugely popular.These blankets are filled with glass beads or plastic pellets for added weight. Some also have extra layers of fabric to increase their heaviness. They come in different weights and sizes, and can be used by kids, teens, and adults. You can buy weighted blankets in a wide range of places, from department stores to chain drugstores to online specialty stores. You can also find handmade ones online, or instructions to make one for yourself.
