Relieving Chronic Pain: My kuddly blanket experience

With all things going on in our world, I felt myself becoming more anxious.

My increased anxiety was affecting my sleep, and worse yet, I started to feel considerable pain all over my body. I realized I needed to make changes to my life before the pain became unbearable and the first thing was getting my mental health in order.  This is what brought me to weighted blankets.

More specifically, it brought me to the kuddly weighted blanket.

This is my story about how I relieved my anxiety and chronic pain with the kuddly weighted blanket.

Why I chose the kuddly blanket

Weighted blankets have become the go-to tool to help offset conditions like insomnia, anxiety, and chronic pain like fibromyalgia and the associated effects they can have on my body.

After browsing the internet for the top-weighted blankets available in the UK, I opted for the kuddly blanket.  It was the one weighted blanket with the highest quality and the most reasonable price tag attached.

Plus, kuddly’s reviews were great, especially the ones talking about how the kuddly blanket has helped with fibromyalgia! Weighted Blanket reviews from those suffering from fibromyalgia:

Excellent and very calming. Fibro sufferer and constant RLS! This has helped and is very comforting and the is not too heavy to cause discomfort. Really want to try the cooling blanket next!!

I ordered my weighted blanket after it was suggested trying it for Fibromyalgia pain. The blanket itself is a luscious, soft velvet to the touch and feels quite sumptuous. I was skeptical but! I am so pleased I made the purchase. It's like a reassuring hug with health benefits. No regrets 🙂

I took advantage of this attractive offer:

£49 each or purchase 2 kuddly blankets for £89 and get a FREE SLEEP MASK. 

The reviews raved about the kuddly blanket’s quality, and for that price, how could I say no?

I ended up gifting the other kuddly blanket to my friend who really suffers from anxiety. She loves hers and has told me that she feels much calmer now and is able to sleep through the night.

Super quick delivery

Once I pressed the complete order button, I was itching to try out my new purchase. I really needed pain relief fast and kuddly didn’t disappoint.™ offers free shipping and many reviews mentioned how quickly their kuddly products arrive. So, I didn’t have long to wait long for my kuddly blanket.

A day later, my parcel arrived, and I gleefully tore into it.

Here is a photo of my kuddly blanket!

First Impressions

My first thought after opening the parcel was the feel. My God, THE FEEL.

You could easily drag your hand back and forth along the plush fabric for hours. In fact, I ended up unconsciously doing so as I brought my new weighted blanket to the sofa with me.

Peacful Nights

As a child, it was easy for me to fall asleep and stay that way through the night. Plus, this was before I started feeling achy all over. 

As I aged, however, I found it harder and harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. Because of the pain, I used to periodically wake up in the night to switch positions, feeling uncomfortable and restless.

But after sleeping with the kuddly blanket, I am happy to report that such restlessness has diminished. At night, I feel warm and cosy under the heavy blanket and the weight helps to keep me in a comfortable position for hours of peaceful sleeping.

Refreshing Mornings

I only ever used to wake up to the blaring sound of my alarm. However, after just a few nights snuggled up under my kuddly weighted blanket, I found myself returning to a state of wakefulness before my alarm went off.

After my first night sleeping with my kuddly blanket, I woke up feeling like I had achieved a deeper level of sleep than I was used to.

As a result, I finally learned what it’s like to be like a morning person.

Many have said it can take a few weeks sleeping with a weighted blanket to feel a difference, but after a couple of nights, I was pretty impressed.

The Science Behind It All

Before weighted blankets became widely popular with the mainstream, autistic people and those with ADHD understood how calming and soothing a weighted blanket could be. 

The many benefits like improving sleep and focus, relieving anxiety and stress, are due to the weighted blanket’s gentle pressure which stimulates (DPT) deep touch pressure. DPT is what induces a calming sensation throughout the body.

As such, the weighted blanket produces happy hormones which help relax muscles and ease away stress.

I can only assume that this easing of muscles due to slight pressure is what helps with my chronic pain. 

All I can say is, the kuddly blanket has done wonders for me. It’s been a huge game-changer and perhaps it can be for you too. And since kuddly offers a 30-day trial period, nothing is really stopping you from trying one out for yourself. 

Essential Self-Care

As Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle from Parks and Rec would say, TREAT YO SELF.

This is my go-to mantra for the weekend, and really, for any session of self-care.

Whether it’s taking the time to retreat to my room for a quiet moment, reading one of my favourite books, or bingeing an entire series in one sitting, the kuddly blanket makes for a pretty cosy companion.

I found that I was able to sit and enjoy the task at hand for longer, without the need for readjusting positions or for lack of concentration.

Cuddling up with my kuddly blanket also helped me drown out the rest of the world.

Those anxious feelings were muted, and I felt a more profound sense of security overall.

Final Thoughts On The Kuddly Weighted Blanket

So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience using the kuddly weighted blanket. So much so, that my family is already annoyed with how much I’ve brought it up in conversation.

You can say that I have jumped on the weighted blanket bandwagon, but that’s a mouthful.

I hope, too, that a weighted blanket will benefit your life like it has mine.

In fact, I, as many others have, highly recommend the kuddly weighted blanket. 

I encourage you to get yourself one while the kuddly blanket flash sale is still on.
