Why You Need A Weighted Blanket During A Pandemic More Than Ever

2020 was supposed to be a stellar year... Cinco De Mayo on Taco Tuesday, the Fourth of July and Halloween are finally on a Saturday, just to name a few of the great things in 2020. Instead, it has delivered overwhelming job loss, limited to no social gatherings, high stress and anxiety. Oh, and the COVID-19 Pandemic.


Weekly routines such as grocery store runs, gym time and baseball games have all been impacted and the impact of those changes are more anxiety, more stress, more worry and more fear to name a few.

As misery loves company you are not the only feeling the choas of COVID. These emotions are the natural feelings of a pandemic that has disrupted "normal life." Even further are Insomnia, restlessness, fidgeting, tossing-and-turning, fatigue, horrible thoughts, instability fears and a mind that doesn’t turn off. You get the point. Now that we've clearly stated the problem... here is the all natural solution. A Moxie weighted blanket. Yes, it really is that simple.

Now, more than ever, we need relief from the world we live in.Which is why you need a weighted blanket now more than ever. Right now, in the middle of this choatic pandemic. And over the next few months as we continue transitioning into the next phases of opening up as well as the Fall when the virus can spike even higher.


Why a Moxie Weighted Blanket?

The underlying science on weighted blankets is called deep touch pressure stimulation(DTPS) . DTPS is about gently applying pressure to the body to increase the release of serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical in the body that promotes relaxation. The extra weight helps you achieve a more restive night's sleep. The weight helps your body feel grounded, which reduces your body's levels of cortisol, a stress hormone.

According to a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine , “grounding the human body to earth (“earthing”) during sleep reduces night- time levels of cortisol [the stress hormone] and re-synchronizes the cortisol hormone secretion more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm profile.” The “grounding” that weighted blankets provide, allows you to relax enough to keep your stress hormones under control while you sleep. This triggers a chain reaction in the body that releases an overall sense of calm and peace. Pretty cool, right?!
