Put on Some Weight for Better Sleep and Less Stress – Baloo Living with Dave Asprey : 759

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a seeker with a success story. And that story includes creating a weighted blanket that will change the way you sleep.

After 15 years searching for fulfillment through her career—in politics, publishing, finance and start-ups, Elizabeth Grojean detached from life in the city to look within. She headed to Bali where she focused on meditation, yoga, healing and finding a new way of living—one rooted in connection, generosity and mindfulness.

On that foundation, she created the sleep and wellness company Baloo Living and launched a weighted blanket as her first product. It's a year-round self-care tool.

Studies show that pressure touch stimulates serotonin in the body. By using a weighted blanket, “it becomes faster and easier to go to sleep,” Elizabeth explains. “There's a very subtle but sudden physical, physiological response that happens. The pressure on the body is letting you know that it's safe to relax that fight or flight response.”

Within months of its 2018 launch, Baloo earned a reputation as one of the top brands on the market, where it remains. Elizabeth doesn’t compromise when it comes to materials or experience. 

“The idea of doing something good for yourself by using a bag of plastic felt so negative to me in terms of the environmental aspect of that,” she says. “Energetically, I just didn't like the idea of that at all.” Instead, Baloo’s blankets use materials certified to be free of chemicals and toxins.

From tips on finding yourself, entrepreneurship and how to ease your anxiety and sleep better with a weighted blanket, you’re going to learn a lot in this episode from Elizabeth’s path.
