During these uncertain times, more of us than ever might be experiencing feelings of anxiety, which can have a profound impact on one’s sleep.
While a weighted blanket isn’t designed to be used to cure any medical conditions, a lot of people have found it to be anxiety-quashing and even an effective solution for troubled sleep.
The heavy throws have a similar to the feeling of being hugged, instantly making you feel comforted and cosy. It’s this feeling that’s said to reduce anxiety and therefore help you get better quality sleep. The jaymag Weighted Blanket is a popular and highly-rated weighted blanker on Amazon. Even better, it’s now 36 per cent off.
The jaymag Weighted Blanket is now on sale for just £44.99 for a double – that’s an impressive saving of £25
Designed to help us feel comforted and secure, it’s not surprising to see that sales of weighted blankets have soared of late.
While some can be priced as high as £200, Amazon shoppers have found an affordable solution with the jaymag Weighted Blanket.
It’s currently priced at £44.99 in the Early Black Friday Sale Event on Amazon and has received plenty of positive reviews, having earned a near-perfect average rating of 4.6 out of 5. Shoppers call it a ‘game-changer’ and ‘so comforting’, describing it as feeling ‘like you’re being hugged’. One even reported how it ‘dramatically improved sleep’.
Many shoppers swear by the weighted blanket, waxing lyrical over its benefits. It’s especially popular with those who endure restless nights and that suffer from anxiety and stress.
‘Amazing’ raved one shopper. ‘Was dubious about this blanket working but it is amazing. I suffer anxiety & was going through a difficult spell with it so purchased this blanket as a last gasp attempt to help with sleep. I slept better from the first night, and sleep improved the following nights too.’
Another agreed, impressed with the blankets ability to help them nod off: ‘I can say that my sleep has improved massively and prefer sleeping under my blanket than without now.
It also helps with my anxiety, I have panic attacks, and while being under this blanket, I found it helped to calm me down as I shake and even helped me get to sleep when it got really bad. Can’t recommend enough.’
The blanket distributes the 7kg weight evenly across your entire body, creating a calming effect that shoppers claim helps you get a ‘dramatically improved sleep’
An affordable way to manage symptoms of anxiety, the blanket provides something called ‘deep-touch therapy’. The weighted blanket creates a gentle pressure on the body, much like being touched, which increases serotonin that helps us feel happy and calm.
Made out of premium 100 per cent cotton, the quilted blanket has equally stitched pockets for an even spread over your body. It gets its weight from hypo-allergenic non-toxic glass beads that are evenly distributed throughout.
Weighing 7kg, it’s a similar weight to other weighted blankets but costs a fraction of the price. You can use in the same way you do a regular blanket; on the sofa, over your legs or used at night for additional support.
The results seem to be impressive, with one shopper penning: ‘My sleep is much improved. I spent a long time searching for a weighted blanket and decided on this one, the reviews are great, and it hasn’t let me down.
I struggle with insomnia and relaxation in general, whilst this isn’t stopping me from waking through the night, I am finding I actually feel as if I have slept when I wake, and getting out of bed really isn’t the worst thing in the world! It’s great for days when I feel anxious.’
