If you haven’t already heard, Hush blankets are making their mark and are completely redefining the way we sleep. It is currently the #1 weighted blanket in the country, and it can help with varying issues and symptoms that individuals face on a regular basis.
What Is It?
Hush blankets are weighted blankets designed to better improve your sleep. It is also known for helping with many other problems such as insomnia and anxiety. Its warm and soft minky fabric allows you to relax, while the weight of the blanket is evenly distributed for a feeling of security and comfort. The weight of the blanket helps soothe the nerves and alleviate stress when things feel overwhelming.
The Science Behind It
According to Hush, weighted blankets were designed with various mental and physical issues in mind. They were created to help patients who struggle with anxiety, ADHD, insomnia, OCD, sensory processing disorder and other common issues related to sleep. The key to its success is thanks to deep touch pressure stimulation (DTPS). DTPS is light but firm pressure designed to relax the nervous system. It has been proven to help patients fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Patients have also credited the blanket for deeper sleeps and a feeling of rejuvenation the next morning. DTPS has also been affiliated with reducing the steroid hormone known as cortisol. It is a glucocorticoid hormone that is produced in humans as a reaction of low blood-glucose concentration and stress. It is also associated with increasing serotonin and melatonin levels.
Which One Is Right For You?
The blankets are available in four different weights and two different sizes. For sizing, one option is for a twin bed, and the other is for a queen. In regards to weights, the blankets range from 10 to 25 pounds. Hush recommends to purchase a weigh that is 10% of your body weight. If you are between blankets, it is recommended to choose the heavier option.

“My son suffers from horrible anxiety. Loud Cars, exams or any situation that could cause anxiety, he usually suffers from. I figured why not test out this blanket. The customer service was great and they followed up with any questions i had. At first my son was a little resistant and didn’t feel comfortable. But after 3 nights it has been INCREDIBLE. He is SO much better, his nights are better, his days as a result are better and my life has become better because of that. Thanks Hush. This blanket is a life saver!” – Chris R
