Why ADHD Brains Resist Sleep

ADHD brains are forever whirring and imagining. This leads to incredible creativity — and many restless nights as we beg our minds to be quiet. Sleep challenges are a common byproduct of ADHD that further aggravates symptoms — an unrested child or adult with ADHD is more likely to suffer debilitating symptoms that keep them up at night. A vicious cycle.

How Mosaic Weighted Blankets Help

USA-made Mosaic Weighted Blankets are designed and responsibly manufactured in Austin, Texas. Mosaic’s weighted blankets for adults, teens, kids, and seniors come in a variety of sizes ranging from twin, to queen, to king. Mosaic also offers weighted accessories such as lap pads, shoulder pads, and weighted sleep masks. Mosaic Weighted Blankets come in a variety of fabrics — 100% cotton, minky, and coolmax. The deep pressure stimulation from weighted blankets increases your serotonin levels, allowing you to sleep restfully through the night.
