How You Can Use a Weighted Lap Pad for Anxiety Relief

These days we find ourselves with more tools than ever to help manage our minds and improve our mental health. Certainly, a wider variety of more powerful and effective medications are available now than ever before, but the evolution of mental health management has expanded to offering drug-free management options that are simple, affordable, and easy to use as well. Today we’ll take a look at one such solution and explore how you can use Huggaroo’s Weighted Lap Pad For Anxiety relief and management.


Perhaps you’ve heard of weighted lap pads already, as they are commonly used in helping hyperactive children settle and focus their minds. This is far from the only use of a weighted lap pad, however. Even if you haven’t heard of weighted lap pads yet, we’re certain you’ve heard of weighted blankets. In essence, a weighted lap pad is a small, more compact weighted blanket that can be draped over your lap while sitting down. The best lap pads, like the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad (Puppy) and the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad (Lamb), are easily portable and can be used at home, at work, or on the go!


Much like a larger weighted blanket, a weighted lap pad provides Deep Pressure Stimulation through the gentle weight pressing down into your lap. Deep Pressure Stimulation is a natural process you’ve already experienced before – the solid comfort of a loved one’s warm arms wrapped around you is a form of Deep Pressure Stimulation. But with a weighted lap pad for anxiety relief, you can experience that same soothing comfort without the need for a second person to hold you close all throughout the duration of whatever is making your anxiety flare-up. Instead, you can simply settle the lap pad over your lap and let the Deep Pressure Stimulation signal to your brain that it’s time to shift out of that fight or flight mode and into a more calm and focused state of being.


Huggaroo’s weighted lap pads are especially handy because they are compact and unassuming, while also inviting and pleasing to both children and adults. The sweet, friendly shapes of the plush outer covers allow these lap pads to pass as simple stuffed animals, helping the children who use them to feel comfortable without feeling singled out or overwhelmed. Plus, their shaped ears, snouts, and legs provide variety to run anxious hands over. Meanwhile, the inner weighted lap pad is a separate piece, so the plush and friendly outer covers can be removed and washed separately, or kept off altogether for older children and adults looking for a more subtle assistant.


Measuring 29 x 8 inches and weighing 3.6 lbs, the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad (Puppy) and the Huggaroo Weighted Lap Pad (Lamb) can easily be maneuvered by children and adults alike and will fold over and fit in most travel bags. They can be brought to work, to the dentist, out to dinner or onto a long flight, and easily store when they aren’t needed. Both the 100% polyester Minky outer covers and the 100% cotton inner weighted quilts are machine washable, and the food-grade polypropylene pellets that give these lap pads their wonderful weight are completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic, making Huggaroo’s weighted lap pad an accessible tool for everyone!
