Life got you feeling anxious and tense? Could you use a bear hug from a good friend? We feel you. You might just need a better blanket.
This invention actually tricks your nervous system into taking a chill pill. Seriously – you might want to schedule some quality time with this thing!
We all have that “what would you do” lottery dream, right? Like, let’s hire a personal chef to cook incredible food all day on a whim. And a massage therapist to follow us around and rub our shoulders. And a big billboard in front of our mother-in-law’s house that just says NYEH NYEH NYEH!
Add to that someone who gives you a glorious hug whenever you need it. Good news – you don’t need to hit the Powerball for that one. You just need Gravity.
A weighted blanket that helps relax the nervous system, Gravity simulates the feeling of being held or hugged. Turns out, scientists have known for years this simple tech can help make stress just fade away. Simple hugs help lower cortisol levels (a hormone related to stress).
They also help raise melatonin (which regulates sleep-wake cycles) and serotonin (feelings of well-being and happiness).
Gravity is currently available in three different weights: 15, 20, or 25 pounds. The company suggests you get one that is approximately 10% of your body weight for optimal effect. And don’t worry about the weight, these seemingly lead-like wraps are surprisingly breathable! Plus, the High-Density Polyethylene pellets inside will keep you nice and comfy.
So whether you want more sleep, or just want to feel more relaxed while binge-watching Netflix, check out the Gravity Blanket.
