A demanding job, constant disparaging news headlines, irritating push notifications and the non-stop piling up of social media content takes its toll on your brain. Although some stress is necessary, too much stress is proven to take its effects not only mentally, but physically as well.
A recent study found that the average American spends about 30% of their leisure time browsing the Internet. The majority (61%) of Americans even admit to being addicted to their devices. The work place yields an even worse statistic. Employees on average visit about 40 websites a day and change tasks every 2 minutes. Nearly 2 hours a day is spent merely in trying to recover from distractions. This new way of living has definitely contributed to an alarming rate of stress in our society.
Stress, anxiety and sleep deprivation are serious to health and well-being. Not only do these cause a decrease in productivity, but they also cause long-term health problems such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Today, it’s more common to know people who have sleeping issues then those who do not. SERENITY is more than a therapeutic tool – it’s a beautifully crafted, soft blanket you can comfortably use any day of the year.
Through Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) the Serenity Sleep System creates a hugging effect. When people hug, thebody releases the hormone oxytocin. This hormone helps reduce blood pressure, slows the heart, and provides a feeling of relaxation. Serenity is configured to be between 7 – 15% of your body weight, to reach optimal benefits and results.
Why Did We Create This Product?
My name is Adam Candiotti and I am one of the founders behind Serenity Sleep Systems. Truth be told, the weighted blanket concept has been in my family for years. I have a younger sister Jill who was born with special needs, at least that is what they called it in the late seventies. A psychologist recommended that my mom try and come up with some tools for my sister to help her find some comfort in times of need. One of the recommendations was the idea of a smaller blanket that had some weight to it, something that might simulate a hug. She took that concept to a local seamstress and together they added some beanbag weights to a store bought blanket, and there it was. This blanket could be found everywhere in our home that my sister was; it became a part of the family.
Recently I noticed that this type of product was being commercialized and was rolling out to the public as a stress reliever and sleep aid. I knew this was a great idea, but I thought to myself “How can we make it even better?” With twenty years in the textile manufacturing business, I called two of my friends that could make this concept a reality, and thus Serenity was born.
Serenity is a weighted blanket anxiety relief system made from all natural plant based and organic materials. After seeing what was on the market, we figured this natural non-prescription remedy should naturally be “all-natural” in itself.
Serenity is created from only the finest materials and truthfully the quality is built right in. This was easy for me to visualize. I figured that everyone interested in this type of product would want the same things that I wanted in it – Only the very best.
I hope you enjoy it.
