AnxietyPanda likes to sleep almost as much as she likes eating bamboo. In fact, AnxietyPanda spends almost half her day frolicking in dreamland! If only she knew about the Rocabi weighted blanket for anxiety sooner! Because of its weight, your brain believes that you are being hugged or touched and starts releasing serotonin and other feel-good chemicals to help soothe and ease your anxiety and helps you fall into a deeper, more restful sleep. It would’ve saved a panda many restless nights …
Why Use This Weighted Blanket for Your Anxiety?
You can be assured of a restful night’s sleep with a Rocabi blanket. The blankets are of the highest quality and can be seen as an excellent substitution for sleeping pills!
The blanket consists of the inner, weighted shell, which is weighted by poly pellets that are sewn into pockets on the blanket, as well as a soft, minky microfiber outer cover (sold separately) for ultimate panda-indulgence.
It is quick and easy to assemble and there are ribbons on the corners of both the inner blanket and outer cover so that you can tie the blankets together to ensure that they stay in unison.
It is recommended that a weighted blanket should weigh about 10 – 12% of your body weight, and Rocabi offers 3 different weights to cover most body types. Their blankets come in 15,20 & 25lbs weights to cover body weights from 100-250lbs! Please do remember that this blanket is not suitable for the cubs. This one is strictly for adult pandas.
Easy to Care For
Both the blanket and the minky cover are machine washable, which means you won’t have to waste countless trips and extra money to have it dry-cleaned. You will need to wash the two separately and on a delicate, cold cycle with low spin. It is recommended to not wash the inner blanket as much, but the outer cover can be washed on a more regular basis, so you’ll always have a fresh smelling blanky! Don’t wash the cover inside-out and don’t under any circumstances tumble dry the blanket or the cover. Please allow them to air-dry.
