HAVE BOUGHT FOUR AND PLANNING ON A FIFTH
 
I am not sure with what magic the blankets work, but they seem to help the kids get to sleep, stay asleep, and maintain a good temperature.
 
BEST PURCHASE EVER
 
Well worth the price compared to the cheaper ones - fabric on both the blanket and cover feel so luxurious and premium and cool. I’ve found that I settle into sleep more easily and wake less in the night. Can’t recommend this highly enough! :)
 
MY BLANKET IS MY ADDICTION
 
I’ve slept so amazing since having my Groundd blanket and I actually don’t remember the last time I slept this well, it’s been years!

 
BEST SLEEP EVER!
 
I only bought a Groundd weighted blanket to please my daughter. Well I am a convert! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Had my best sleep in years and woke up so refreshed. 💝💝
 
100% WORTH IT
 
Should've bought this years ago! It was a bit of a splurge for me, but 100% worth it. Would recommend all day.
EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY!
 
I have ADHD, and had heard they worked well to help calm my "never a dull moment" thought process, and the Groundd blanket has!
NGA MIHI NUI FOR MAKING THIS PRODUCT
 
I feel hardly any anxiety at all about going to sleep due to using your product. Nga mihi nui for making this product, it is helping so much with my feeling rested and restored.
 
LOVE IT
 
I’ve always loved piling my bed up with blankets - especially in winter, and now I have that comforting “nest” feeling without 30 blankets.
 
SERVICE
 
Cannot fault the service. Several days after arrival we found it necessary to change to the smaller size. Within 24 hours this was accomplished along with adjustment in the price.
 
 
 
 
 
 
BEST SLEEP EVER!
 
I was very sceptical that this would make any difference to my sleep and only bought a Groundd weighted blanket to please my daughter. Well I am a convert! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Had my best sleep in years and woke up so refreshed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 💝💝
 
100% WORTH IT
 
I bought this for my wife who hasn't been sleeping well due to anxiety. From night one, she has been raving about how much deeper she has been sleeping. Should've bought this years ago! It was a bit of a splurge for me, but 100% worth it. Ths silk cover breathes well and has ties on the inside to prevent the blanket from crumpling to one side within the cover - great innovation I never knew I needed. Would recommend all day. Thank you Groundd!
EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY!
 
I have never had major sleep problems, but I have wanted a weighted blanket for quite some time now. I have ADHD, and had heard they worked well to help calm my "never a dull moment" thought process, and the Groundd blanket has! I also have a tendency to sleep too hot, nothing major but a bit annoying. Now, as we enter summer weather, I find myself only sleeping with a top sheet and the Groundd blanket, which always stays at the perfect temperature for the warmer nights. If it gets too cold, just add another warm blanket on top and you're set to go.
HAVE BOUGHT FOUR AND PLANNING ON A FIFTH
 
All our kids now have these blankets and we’ve bought one for a young friend who suffers severe anxiety. I am not sure with what magic the blankets work, but they seem to help the kids get to sleep, stay asleep, and maintain a good temperature. On top of that, the people at Groundd are great to deal with, they communicate well, and the service and delivery is super prompt.
 
BEST PURCHASE EVER
 
Love this blanket. Feels so comforting and the perfect amount of heavy - like it’s what I’ve been missing in a blanket all this time! Well worth the price compared to the cheaper ones - fabric on both the blanket and cover feel so luxurious and premium and cool, so it’s cooling even in summer. Over the three weeks I’ve had it, I’ve found that I settle into sleep more easily and wake less in the night. Can’t recommend this highly enough! :)

NGA MIHI NUI FOR MAKING THIS PRODUCT
 
My friend bought me a present of your quilt to help me sleep, and it is working.
I am relaxed when the quilt is on me, I feel like I am being held but not restrained, not controlled, but I feel hardly any anxiety at all about going to sleep due to using your product. I have always had trouble going back to sleep after waking up to use the toilet, and with this quilt, I relax much quicker and then get to sleep. Also getting to sleep is easier. I have suffered from insomnia for years. Nga mihi nui for making this product, it is helping so much with my feeling rested and restored.
 
LOVE IT
 
I’ve always loved piling my bed up with blankets - especially in winter, and now I have that comforting “nest” feeling without 30 blankets. I use it a lot during the day too. I suffer from PTSD, and I have found that this helps sooth me noticeably.
 
MY BLANKET IS MY ADDICTION
 
Honestly I really wondered how a blanket would help with sleep, I am now 100% converted and addicted. I look forward to going to bed every night. I’ve slept so amazing since having my Groundd blanket and I actually don’t remember the last time I slept this well, it’s been years! I do suffer from anxiety which I have mostly under control but this is just one more tool for me to use when things do flare up. Thank you guys!

 All Benefits & Uses of Weighted Blankets

See the full list of research backed benefits here

Insomnia

Weighted blankets are well known for their positive effects on insomnia as many people find them to be helpful in inducing sleep and improving sleep quality.

As they become more popular and used for sleep, new research is being done and supporting these claims. The latest research from The Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine published a randomised controlled study that concluded "Weighted blankets are an effective and safe intervention for insomnia in patients with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also improving daytime symptoms and levels of activity."

A 2015 study from the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, University of Gothenburg, Sweden says "Objectively, we found that sleep bout time increased, as well as a decrease in movements of the participants, during weighted blanket use. Subjectively, the participants liked sleeping with the blanket, found it easier to settle down to sleep and had an improved sleep, where they felt more refreshed in the morning. Overall, we found that when the participants used the weighted blanket, they had a calmer night's sleep."

Sensory & Autism 

The first known use of weighted blankets was to lessen negative symptoms of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). Weighted blankets were used to exert touch therapy by administering a squeezing/hugging feeling. Autism research pioneer, Temple Gradin, found this was highly effective in calming patients with ADS. Further research from Harvard shows that touch therapy can reduce ailments like muscle spasms and relieve social anxiety. A weighted blanket may provide similar effects.

Anxiety

According to Harvard Medical School research, "sleep problems affect more than 50% of adult patients with generalised anxiety disorder". Having anxiety can cause sleeping problems and make it difficult to sleep, but sleep deprivation can also trigger anxiety. Weighted blankets can help break this poor sleep cycle by providing physiological and psychological benefits that help alleviate anxiety.

Weighted blankets provide these benefits through Deep Touch Pressure (DTP), DTP is a therapeutic method to relax the nervous system and achieve an overall sense of calm and peace.
