Seeking a serene slumber
Not that long ago, a good night’s sleep was an unrealised dream for my husband and I.
Even on the nights where we did manage some sleep, we woke up tired, lethargic and lacking energy. Deep, restful and restorative sleep eluded us.
The constant state of tiredness was relentless and it wasn’t sustainable to keep going on that way.
On my quest to find answers I discovered the power of weighted blankets.
Improve sleep. Reduce anxiety
I purchased a weighted blanket to see if it would improve my husband’s sleep. To our surprise, it made a difference.
He began sleeping well, which was a relief for both of us, but he wasn’t feeling the full effects of the blanket because it was too big.
And the blanket was bothering me.
Those little micro-glass beads that shift and move around in the blanket? Yeah, they also regularly make a run for it, turning our bed into a sandpit. Okay not literally a sandpit but little glass beds rolling around your sheets feels like sand. No. Not fun at all.
Plus, the weight of the blanket never quite sat right. And the bulky appearance wasn’t attractive.I know how that sounds, but why couldn’t I have a weighted blanket that looked nice as well?
Yet again, I started researching an alternative but could never find one that ticked all the boxes. One that was sustainable, stylish, functional, and; designed to provide the full impact on the person’s body, not the bed.
So I decided to make this luxurious weighted blanket that ticked all the boxes a reality.
Hyber Nation was born.
The science proves it
Medical research and scientific studies have proven that sleeping under a weighted blanket improves the quality and duration of sleep. Ackerley R, Badre G and Olausson found that a weighted blanket helped:
- Increase restful sleep time
- Decrease movements of the participants
- Settle you down to sleep
- Improve sleep
- To feel refreshed in the morning.
