Today, we’re living in a world that’s extremely different from the one it was 6 months ago. From the health risks associated with COVID-19 to the mental health impact caused by isolation and increased time spent at home, it’s no wonder we’re more stressed and anxious. Stress and anxiety are major factors in your overall wellness, impacting everything from your sleep schedule and gut health. One way to combat the increased stress and anxiety society is facing is with better sleep, and that’s why Gravity partnered with TUSHY to bring you science-backed, non-pharmaceutical solutions to help you get deeper relaxation and better sleep.

The Gravity Blanket uses the power of deep touch pressure stimulation" to simulate the feeling of being held (like a hug!). This increases serotonin and melatonin, the hormones responsible for relaxation, and decreases cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress - which equals more tranquility at home.

Better sleep not only helps to combat your stress and anxiety, but it can also help bathroom breaks be a more relaxed experience. Here are some studies that discuss the benefits of sleep and how it helps stress levels and gut health:


● The National Library of Medicine confirmed that sleep disorders and disruptions are also known to negatively impact the gut microbiota, which leads to adverse health conditions and less cognitive flexibility.

● Michael J. Breus, a world-renowned Sleep Doctor, discussed the impact of insufficient sleep on the composition of the human microbiome and a study where scientists found that poor sleep caused a significant decrease in types of beneficial gut bacteria.

● A Harvard Health Study confirmed that about 95% of your Serotonin is produced in the gastrointestinal tract, and your gastrointestinal tract is lined with a hundred million nerve cells, or neurotransmitters. Serotonin, the feel-good and happiness hormone, is essential to managing stress and anxiety!
