Did you know that a third of all Americans don’t get enough sleep regularly?
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) 1 out of every 3 adult Americans don’t get enough sleep, and 70% have trouble sleeping at least one night a week.
This is due to a variety of reasons, but most cases are linked to anxiety. Anxiety is the most common mental disorder in the United States, affecting about 18% of the population who are 18 years or older - amounting to around 40 million people.
There are many ways to soothe or treat sleep disorders, but most of them include the use of prescribed medication, which leads a whole new series of complications for the individual. Besides, a great number of cases involves regular visits to psychologists or even psychiatrists.
Enter the Gravity Blanket.
Weighted blankets are known when it comes to medical care - they’re used to soothe not just anxiety and sleep disorders, but ADHD, autism, depression, and weight gain. Only recently these special blankets started becoming available commercially, but not a lot of people knew about what they were and what were the benefits of acquiring one.
The Gravity Blanket kickstarter wants to change that. This special blanket is designed to weigh about 10% of your total body weight - it’s filled with high-density Poly Pellets that will spread evenly over your body.
Simply put, it feels like a warm and strong hug, as it applies even pressure on your body, increasing serotonin and melatonin levels, while decreasing cortisol levels.
The Gravity Blanket also:
- Decreases movement during sleep, enabling a deeper REM cycle;
- The ultrasoft microfiber texture feels incredible to touch;
- Doesn’t require any prescribed medication to make full effect;
- Benefits virtually anyone with trouble sleeping or anxiety;
- Made with breathable materials, so you’re never too hot under it;
- Puts equal pressure over your body, making you feel embraced and relaxed;
“It usually takes me 45 minutes to fall asleep, but I put the blanket on and passed out in like 7 minutes.” - Gravity Blanket’s customer review
Weighted blankets have been used for years in the medical realm, but there’s been a notable lack of accessible offers for us common folk until recent years.

They still have offers on sale before the deadline ends - and they ship anywhere in the world. You can purchase a Gravity Blanket for $189 (the retail price being $279) with expected time of arrival being October 2017.
