WEIGHTED blankets have been credited with easing anxiety and helping people sleep, but they often come with a sky high price tag.
But you can look forward to a better night’s sleep for less
as eBay is selling the must-have bedding for just £29.

The bargain was shared on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, run by money saving mum Holly Smith.
The Highams Weighted Blanket is suitable for both children
and adults and boasts both “sensory” and sleeping benefits.
According to reports, by gently distributing pressure across
your body the blanket increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases
cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep.
In a similar way to swaddling a baby, the weight and
pressure on an adult provides near-instant comfort and relief.

By maximising relaxation and minimising body movement, it
also claims to put the person into a deeper sleep.
Describing the blanket the seller says: “The Highams
weighted blanket has been crafted to relieve stress, insomnia, anxiety ADHD.
“Using revolutionary ‘Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation’
therapy – known for releasing a sense of serenity and calm – the compact
stitched pockets distribute weight evenly across your entire body, creating a
calming, snuggle effect.
