The Autumn chill always leaves me feeling a little restless, especially at night when it comes to sleeping – I seem to toss and turn in bed at late hours in the night and before I know it, the next day comes at me!
So, when the kind people at Mela sent me this weighted blanket, I was curious to see what it was all about, and boy did it work wonders to lull me into a deep sleep! The Mela weighted blanket is the perfect companion for those wanting to ease their anxiety or improve their sleep to feel happier and relaxed. It works by applying gentle pressure over the body, making you feel like you’re being hugged – a great way to activate Oxytocin and Serotonin; the hormones respectively linked to feeling calm and happy!
The Mela weighted blanket is manufactured a 100% cotton outer shell alongside anti-rustle glass quartz pellets padded with polyester which all work together to stabilise temperatures. It’s brilliant airflow design mould around the shape of the body to ease tensed muscles, reduce cortisol (a stress hormone) and promote production of melatonin (a sleep hormone). The blanket also comes with a soft, removable minky cover manufactured from recycled polyester, making it pretty stylish to use in your living room too!
In regards to caring for the Mela weight blanket, it’s pretty easy – wash on a cold gentle cycle (a maximum of 30 degrees) and lay it flat to dry so it doesn’t lose its shape; easy peasy! One thing to keep in mind is not to leave it unattended around children or pets, as it is quite heavy. Starting at £109.99, the Mela weighted blanket is the perfect investment for a lifetime.
Until next time.
