How To Stay Cool on With a Tranquility™ Weighted Blanket

Hello! I’m back again today with another tip for staying cool and relaxed during the dog days of summer. The last few months have definitely been trying times and 2020 is shaping up to becoming a year we will never forget. Life is still pretty crazy for me and my family – and everyone is still spending a lot of time at home. Everyone here has their own way of dealing with the stress of the pandemic. For my kids it is about getting out of the house and engaging in physical activity. My husband unwinds with video games. I’m back to work, which presents it’s own set of anxieties. At the end of the day it feels so nice to just sit down and relax, either by reading a book, watching a movie with my kids, or catching up with the day’s news. And my favorite way to relax is with the deep calming pressure of my Tranquility Cool to the Touch weighted blanket! Tranquility™ (the top-rated, affordable weighted blanket brand) has designed their latest weighted blanket to keep you cool during the hot summer. I’ve had the chance to try it out for the last couple of months, and today I wanted to tell you all about my experience with this innovative new blanket.

Why Use a Weighted Blanket?

Everyone loves a good hug. This starts when we are babies, and it doesn’t stop once we achieve adulthood. A good hug just makes everything feel better, and life feels so much easier after you have one. A weighted blanket mimics the feeling of a long hug. Weighted blankets typically weigh between 15-20 pounds. They get their weight from thousands of tiny glass beads embedded in a fiber matrix within the blanket. This added weight distributes pressure evenly across your body. This Deep Touch Pressure Therapy (DTP) mimics the feeling of being held or hugged, to decrease anxiety and improve sleep quality.

How Does a Cooling Weighted Blanket Work?

One would think that having a heavy 15 to 20-pound blanket would make you very hot. That is definitely not the case with the new Tranquility™ Cool-to-the-Touch Weighted Blanket, available at WalMart. This blanket features a removable cover with advanced BlueCool™ Technology on its underside. This cover works by absorbing and distributing body heat, ultimately providing a continual cooling feeling that lasts for hours. It literally feels like you are surrounding by fresh, soft, cool sheets all the time! This blanket is perfect for hot summer nights, or for anyone who is disturbed by sleeping hot at night.

When to Use a Weighted Blanket

Weighted blanket were first designed to provide a safe, natural solution to improve sleep. They have been shown to help people fall asleep faster and to sleep more deeply. Ultimately using a weighted blanket can help you to wake up feeling more refreshed. However, everyone can benefit from using a weighted blanket! As I said before, my favorite way to use my Tranquility Bedding weighted blanket is to just curl up with it and relax with a good book.

Which Tranquility™ Weighted Blanket is Right for You?

Tranquility weighted blankets, by American Textile Company are some of the most affordable, high quality blankets on the market. While many weighted blankets can cost hundreds of dollars, the new Cool-to-the-Touch Weighted Blanket starts at under $40, which is a tremendous value. The Cool-To-The-Touch weighted blanket is perfect for a hotter climate. In the winter and spring months I recommend the Tranquility Temperature Balancing Weighted Blanket (I previously talked about this blanket here). Tranquility™ cooling blankets come in 15- and 20-pound weights (they come in both tan and grey). The 15-pound blanket is suggested for adults who weigh more than 125 pounds and the 20-pound blanket is recommended for adults who weigh over 175 pounds. For children Tranquility™ even offers a 6- pound Kid’s Weighted Blanket
