When you've had a long or stressful day, there's a lot of comfort to be found snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket. 

A weighted blanket goes one step further. Filled with small glass beads, it adds weight to give the feeling of being hugged. This gentle pressure reduces the stress hormone cortisol and boosts serotonin, which encourages a better mood and even helps you sleep. 

It's not hard to see then why weighted blankets have soared in popularity over the last year. And if you're looking to reap the benefits, then you're in luck as the BEDSURE Weighted Blanket is now on sale, reduced to just £39.09 (was £49.99). 

Mimicking the pressure of being held, the heavy throw can help you feel comforted and safe, quashing anxiety and improving the quality of your sleep

During these uncertain times, you're not alone if your sleeping pattern is all over the place. Anxiety can lead to broken sleep and there's nothing worse trying to face the day on minimal hours sleep. 

That's where the BEDSURE Weighted Blanket can help. Using deep pressure stimulation (the feeling of being hugged), it triggers the release of hormones that calm the nerves and lead to a deeper sleep.

While weighted blankets can fetch over £100, the Bedsure blanket is currently just £39.09 so it's a great price point if you want to see what the fuss is about but don't want to shell out tons of cash.  

Weighing 6.8kg, it's specifically designed to be seven to 12 per cent of your body weight. Shoppers have reported that as it minimises your movements, it helps you to feel soothed, safe and comforted. Think of it as your adult security blanket.  

Made with 100 per cent cotton fabric, the blanket is super soft to touch yet breathable, so it can still be used in the summer months. 

Thanks to the seven layers of construction, the weighted quilted blanket is thick enough that you won't feel the beads poking through, while the equally stitched pockets allow for an even spread over your body.

You can use it in the same way you do a regular blanket: on the sofa, over your legs, or used at night for additional support.

Shoppers have reported falling asleep quicker and deeper when using the 6.8kg weighted blanket from BEDSURE

One delighted shopper left a rave review, writing: 'I am amazed how lovely this is! Sooooo comfortable and hugs the body without feeling like a great weight. I was sceptical these would work but I was wrong. I sleep better and more deeply.'

Another agreed, also wowed by the difference the blanket made to their sleep: 'The best nights sleep I’ve had throughout the whole of lockdown! 

'A pandemic has a weird effect on sleep but I’ve found this weighted blanket is doing wonders for my anxiety. It’s reasonably heavy but I quickly adjusted to that and it’s super cosy and warm. It just makes me feel at peace.'

A third penned: 'This weighted blanked is absolutely amazing! I struggle with insomnia and anxiety at night and this product makes me feel so much more calm. I am sleeping much better since I bought it. 5 Stars!
