Lifehacker recently published a post on sleeping with weighted blankets and referred to a study that found weighted blankets can help anxiety and insomnia. In this week's podcast we are talking about why sleeping with extra weight and warmth can help anxiety according to Ayurveda.
Ananga: When I was anxious as a child I used to like being tucked in at night. In those days we had a sheet covered by a blanket or two and a cover on top. So it was more secure and weightier than the duvets we mostly use these days.
Ayurveda teaches how we can understand our own individual nature and use that understanding to make supportive choices in diet, lifestyle etc to calm anxiety.
