The Harkla Weighted Blanket for adults is a popular size and weight for older children. They help naturally calm the body through deep touch pressure.
The weight from the Harkla Weighted Blanket helps you by regulating their nervous system, through proprioceptive input. It encourages calm. It is like receiving a big hug!
These weighted blankets are ideal for situations that are often stressful, for sensory seekers in the classroom or in the car. They can also be used on the lounge or bed at home.
Deep touch pressure helps the body release serotonin. Serotonin is an important chemical when it comes to feeling calm and assisting with mood stability. Not only does the release of serotonin help a person feel calmer, but serotonin is needed to create melatonin in the body. And Melotonin is a chemical that your body uses to tell itself that it’s time for sleep.
Please note, the blanket is not the size of a single bed doona. It is designed specifically to be the right size for a person to easily carry around and to wrap themseves in. It is more like the size of the top of a single bed mattress (but not quite as long). The weight and size of this could also suit a teen or smaller adult.
