In order to get a good sleep, many people choose to take sleeping pills, but it may also bring many adverse side effects. The good news is that a new study suggests that with just a little thicker blankets, there is hope to provide similar relief and be safer than drugs. < / P > < p > it is reported that these thick blankets were once recommended for patients with certain health and mental disorders, and many people gave positive feedback after experiencing them. Now, a new study proves that again. < p > < p > the Swedish controlled randomized study, published by the American Association of sleep medicine (jcsm), shows that after four weeks of sleeping with thicker blankets, many insomniacs claim to benefit from a variety of benefits, such as reduced depression and anxiety, increased sleep time, reduced severe insomnia, and improved fatigue. < / P > < p > compared with the control group, the experimental group was 26 times more likely to reduce the severity of insomnia by at least half, and the probability of relieving insomnia symptoms was 20 times higher. Even after 12 months of follow-up, the results were still quite positive. Dr. mats alder, consultant of the Department of clinical neuroscience and psychiatrist at the Karolinska Institute, explained that the tactile stimulation of blankets on different parts of the body, as well as the feelings of muscles and joints, are somewhat similar to finger pressing or massage. < / P > < p > there is evidence that deep pressure can increase the stimulation of autonomic nervous system and reduce the sensitivity of parasympathetic nerve, which may explain the sedative and sleep promoting effects of thick blanket.
