We’ve all had those restless nights, tossing and turning, unable to sleep as we lie awake with random thoughts and anxiety. Before you know it, it’s morning and you drag yourself out of bed for yet another weary day ahead. Insomnia, whether mild or extreme, can be detrimental to one’s overall mental well-being.

Recently, weighted blankets have become a hot commodity for their therapeutic attributes. These blankets add pressure to the body from the extra weight, similar to a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation that uses hands-on pressure to relax the nervous system, thereby increasing the amount of dopamine and serotonin in the brain.

Some of the known benefits include:

  • relieve minor pain
  • reduce anxiety
  • improve mood
  • aid insomnia
  • control ADHD

Crystal Weighted Blankets puts gentle pressure on your body to make you feel safe, comforted and relaxed. While other weighted blankets typically get their density from glass pearls, these weighted blankets are also filled with thousands of pieces of Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz and Amethyst that harness natural healing energy and make you feel amazing.

Crystals are used in holistic healing to absorb and direct energies. Amethyst, clear quartz, and rose quartz are added for their calming and soothing effects. Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer; it relieves stress and soothes negative emotions. Clear quartz is considered to be the master of all healing crystals due to its ability to magnify the vibrations of other crystals. Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. Together, they press down on you and make you feel comforted while they also draw out negativity. The result? The most restorative sleep of your life.

They’re available in a variety of sizes, colours, and weight, which are designed to be around 10% of your body weight. There are several variations of weighted blankets on the market, but this one is definitely more at the top end for style, craftsmanship, and durability.

About Sunday Citizen

Founders Mike Abadi & Michelle Familier are a fourth-generation textile family. Sunday Citizen got its start when an entrepreneur approached them to develop a blanket for his luxury hotels. He wanted it to be soft as cashmere, but able to withstand a hotel’s use and abuse. They were up to the challenge and created the first line of blankets for exclusive use in his hotels. After testing them for two years, they performed even better than we expected. It seemed like almost every guest wanted to buy them, and a few blankets even went “missing.” And, perhaps most telling, was their kids couldn’t sleep without them. That’s when they realized we had to share this with the world. They partnered with Michael, the hotelier, to form a family company with a simple mission: create joy through comfort one soft piece at a time.
