At the crack of dawn, all is silent except the drip and steam of the coffee machine until a sound erupts that’s so loud and thunderous it could be a grizzly awakening from hibernation: the dad yawn.
Sleep-deprived dads deserve more than a few hits of the snooze button this Father’s Day. Let’s give them something that’ll actually transform their quality of sleep, night after night. When dads are running on just a few hours of shut-eye, their stress levels are high and if you’ve ever heard the roar of “I’ll turn this car around!”... well, you know how that story ends. It’s a sleep-deprivation slippery slope. In fact, the CDC estimates that 1 in 3 Americans aren’t getting enough sleep.
That’s why this Father’s Day, all the loving father figures in our lives need a Gravity Blanket.
Gravity Blankets are filled with microbeads that remain equally distributed and weigh 7-12 percent of your body weight. That lightly-hugging sensation stimulates the release of serotonin and melatonin, sleep-promoting hormones that help you fall asleep faster while suppressing cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress.
In a recent sleep study, Gravity Blanket users reported falling asleep faster and felt more relaxed and rested when they awoke. If dad’s the type to wake up at 2 a.m. tossing, turning, and thinking about a big meeting tomorrow—Gravity Blankets also help users sleep more consistently throughout the night. Named one of the Best Inventions of 2018 by TIME Magazine, a Gravity Blanket is a simple, yet sophisticated technology that doesn’t require another bedside charger.
The CDC saw a direct correlation to physical health and well-being in adults who got more sleep. Adults who slept less than seven hours of sleep per night were more likely to report being obese and physically inactive than people who got the recommended seven or more hours. Furthermore, lack of sleep increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, depression, and other chronic health conditions. Gravity Blankets can help dad rack up more quality sleep, which will have immediate impact and long-lasting benefits.
For father figures who travel for work, the new Gravity-on-the-Go blanket is a compact version of the original. It rolls up inside a case that fits easily into a carry-on, while the Weighted Sleep Mask will block out bright lights and offer gentle pressure to help dad power nap wherever he’s headed. For dads who sleep hot, the Gravity Cooling Blanket duvet features a technical fabric that draws moisture away from the body at night.
With more sleep, dad will have the energy to start his day, whether he’s headed to the office, to the hardware store, or to a long day in his designated reading chair. Father’s Day gifts can be repetitive, predictable, or downright difficult, but Gravity Blankets don’t have sports team allegiances or favorite classic rock radio stations—they can help all father figures get a better night’s sleep, across the board. Those monster yawns can be saved for early morning swim meets and tee times.
