Lets talk weighted blankets and if they make you hot
Do Weighted Blankets Make You Hot?
Do you have difficulty with falling asleep and staying asleep? caused by anxiety,  fibromyalgia or Insomnia?
A weighted blanket also known as a  therapy blanket or gravity blanket can help you sleep at night.
Research has shown that this type of deep pressure is effective in relaxing the body.
The idea of a weighted Blanket for summer may be a worry to you .
lots of people ask are weighted blankets hot?
Do weighted blankets make you hot?
People often wonder how the heavy blanket works in hot weather of the summer months. After all, you won’t want to wake up over heated!
lots of people search for cooling weighted blanket, not hot one. This is a common misinterpretation about weighted blankets. While weighted blankets are heavier than regular blankets, this does not mean the blankets are too hot.  
You can enjoy a weighted blanket even if you prone to overheating,  if the temperature outside is very warm, you can still be comfortable with your weighted blanket.

The principal factor is the fabric covering the blanket. While flannel or fleece may feel soft to the touch, a weighted blanket created with these fabrics may create too much heat. That’s because those fibers are not natural fibers so the fabric doesn’t breathe well -- trapping body heat under the blanket. 

Best fabrics for a weighted blanket
 
A soft comfortable fabric is key for the external cover; the cover should also be machine washable, and resistant.
Serenity Weighted Blankets have a plush soft and completely removable minky style cover that is included with the inner weighted section. 
You can remove the exterior cover and still use the blanket to reduce the heat. The cover of the weighted inner section is 100% premium cotton, which is breathable, washable, and durable.
 
If you’re suffering from anxiety, you owe it to yourself
If overwhelming stress and anxiety are issues for you, you really owe it to yourself to see if this helps! Give weighted blanket therapy a try. 
research shows that weighted blanket therapy creates a type of physical connection that has superabundant amounts of positive effects on hormones controlling the nervous system, affecting both mood and stress level.
Serotonin, oxytocin,  dopamine, cortisol and melatonin hormones are increased whilst using a weighted blanket giving the grounding your body needs to calm. You will feel the sense of security that calms you down and reduces blood pressure, so the body relaxes. When melatonin hormones are released, the result is sleep!

Overall, the pressure of the weighted blanket provides a calming, soothing environment that is conducive to sleep, helping the anxious person get the rest they need.
Imagine getting a full night’s sleep easily, for the first time in a long time. Snuggling inside your new weighted blanket like you did as a child, feeling the security you needed to sleep deeply. It’s possible to drift into sleep quickly and stay asleep deeply, with a Serenity weighted  blanket
