According to Statistics Canada, more than 3 million Canadians are living with an anxiety or mood disorder, and more than a quarter of those have reported that their disorder has affected their life “quite a bit.”
As Canadians continue to navigate mental health, many are seeking simple ways to keep their symptoms at bay. For some, weighted blankets have helped ensure a calm and restful sleep.
“YnM is a premium-grade weighted blanket that helps relax your body by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged,” explains the product description, “making you fall asleep faster and sleep better throughout the night.”
SHOP IT: Amazon, $140 (originally $165)
The temperature-regulating bamboo viscose blanket is recommended for those who tend to feel hot or sweaty while sleeping — making it the perfect bedroom upgrade for summer.
With an average 4.6-star rating, this blanket also gets glowing reviews from customers.
“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,” reads one review. “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 on the nights where I can't sleep longer, I feel more rested.”
“This product is life-changing! I bought this after a friend recommend it to me. I am a very light sleeper and constantly toss and turn throughout the night. The blanket feels comforting and supportive. I love the feeling of laying down with it or wrapping it around me when I read. This is a game changer for me,” adds another.
Even those with mood disorders weighed in on how this blanket feels like a comforting hug, helping them sleep and relax.
“I suffer from an 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,” says a shopper.
“It works amazing! My girlfriend has PTSD and she had one of the best sleeps in a year with this! Highly recommend it for anyone with any of the problems they listed, from anxiety and depression to insomnia," says another. "It's worth the money."
With a variety of sizes and colours to choose from, YnM recommends, for best results, you follow the guidelines, choosing your blanket based on your body weight.
