Good sleep is vital for health, mental clarity, metabolism, and mood. The phrase “get your beauty sleep” is sound advice because our skin regenerates at night. But stress can make restful sleep elusive. Many of us are sleep deprived. So we’re excited about the Corala Weighted Blanket. It eases away stress and enables relaxed sleep.
Work. School. Deadlines. Family. Health. These can all cause stress. The Corala Weighted Blanket creates a soothing environment and a snugly feel. It uses natural gravity properties to help the brain and body relax and promote restful sleep and better sleep quality.
How Do Weighted Blankets Work?
Weighted blankets use gravity to comfortably swaddle you without feeling trapped or stuffy. This encourages relaxation and sleep. The weight of the blanket works through Deep-Touch Pressure (DTP) stimulation.
Deep-Touch Pressure (DTP) is light, non-painful pressure applied to relax the body. Like how a warm, comforting hug from a loved one feels or how a fussy baby feels calmer once swaddled. The weight of the blanket, when draped over the body, uses DTP for the same hug-like swaddled feeling.
Deep-Touch Pressure helps the body produce “feel-good” neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. The release of serotonin within the brain helps to relieve insomnia.
WHY STRESS IMPACTS SLEEP
Research shows that stress makes the sympathetic nervous system work overtime. How can you tell if your sympathetic nervous system is working overtime? Instead of falling asleep, the mind races, worrying about problems or overthinking about the next day’s tasks. This alters circadian rhythms and causes more anxiety. No wonder restful sleep is elusive!
Corala Weighted Blanket
Functional Design Meets Luxury Aesthetics
This blanket set has unique features. It includes:
The Weighted Blanket
The Corala blanket measures 60″ wide by 80″ long and weighs twenty pounds. The color is Living Coral, the 2019 Pantone color of the year. Cheery, soothing and optimistic, it is versatile and suits many decor schemes.
It fits just across the top of my queen bed and doesn’t drape off the sides. This is on purpose so the weight does not pull or feel heavy.
It is quilted with double reinforced stitches and edges for durability. No bead leaks.
The set comes with two seasonal duvets.
The Corala Winter Duvet is made with a minklike fabric that is very soft. It is warm and toasty without being scratchy or stuffy. It is a grey dotted pattern on the top and soft fabric underneath. It is stylish and versatile.
The Corala Summer Duvet is 100% pure cotton. It has a breathable softness that is not confining or stuffy during hot weather months. It feels like a thick version of high thread count sheets and is exceptionally smooth with a silk blend finish.
Duvet Functional Features
A hidden zipper system on each duvet keeps them stylish.
Eight sets of loops and long ties and multiple sturdy loops secure the blanket inside the duvet. This ensures an even weight distribution.
Construction & Materials
The Corala Blanket is 100% cotton fabric filled with a 170gsm 3D hollow fiber blend. It has a 4 by 4-inch diamond pattern. This is both attractive and enables the weighted beads to stay in place instead of shifting around or settling all to one side.
The weight comes from lead-free glass beads. They are odorless and non-toxic. There are no plastic, synthetic materials or chemicals in this blanket.
It comes in a sleek, generously sized black box suitable for gifting and for storage. The box is absolutely luxe, like Hermes gift box luxe. It has an imprinted logo, thick cardboard, dual-tone design interior and exterior, and a satin lining bottom, like a jewelry gift box!
The outer box comes with a bag and corner padding brackets to keep this gift box perfect until gift-giving. They really went all out on the gift presentation!
It is a great gift for a college or grad student, a new mom, or anyone who could enjoy better sleep.
My Corala Weighted Blanket Experience
I’ve been working on an important project deadline. There have been many late nights working at a computer right up until bedtime. I try to go to sleep, but I frequently linger awake, dwelling on my project, making mental notes for the next day’s work. It keeps me awake when I should be asleep. It is the perfect time to try the Corala Weighted Blanket.
