Snuggle up with a cozy and therapeutic Corala Weighted Blanket that’s a perfect gift for him this Valentine’s Day. It may not come as a surprise to you that many American’s aren’t getting enough sleep. A study has shown that “45% of the population consistently suffers from ‘poor or insufficient sleep’.” Something as simple as adding a weighted blanket can help!
A weighted blanket can help reduce stress and anxiety by increasing serotonin levels in your body. It applies Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) which also helps to combat stress, anxiety, and sleeplessness. I’ve tried a few different weighted blankets, and Corala’s is my favorite! It is perfectly weighted, and the beads stay spread evenly across the blanket so there are no awkward clumps and trying to even out your blanket. Plus, it’s stylish and oh-so-comfy with the minky Duvet which can transition to the cooler cotton duvet for summer.
