Stress reducing benefits of a weighted blanket in a mask

The Benefits of Weighted Blankets
Investing in a weighted blanket is an absolute delight. Not only do these cosy companions provide snug warmth during frosty nights, but their added weight also offers a soothing sensation that feels similar to a comforting hug. 
Picture yourself snuggled up under the gentle pressure of a weighted blanket over the winter months, in a place where you can feel instantly secure as your body relaxes. The deep touch pressure provided by weighted blankets and sleep masks can help the release of serotonin and melatonin, promoting relaxation and better sleep. A NodPod weighted blanket or a NodPod weighted sleep mask could ease away the tension of stressful winter days and invite more serene feelings into your nights.

Calm Your Mind with NodPod Weighted Sleep Masks
The wonders of weighted blankets extend beyond just a good night's sleep. By pairing one with a NodPod weighted sleep mask, you can take your relaxation to a new level. 
While weighted or pressure blankets are used across the body, a weighted sleep mask strategically targets pressure points across your head, providing an additional calming effect on your overactive mind. By harnessing the power of deep touch pressure. Freezer friendly NodPod weighted sleep masks can alleviate headaches, migraines, stress, tension and tired eyes, Nodpod stays soft and flexible out of the Freezer. 



How to Use a Weighted Blanket 
For the best results, you’ll want a weighted blanket that’s around 10% of your body weight. Though that’s the general rule, some prefer more or less pressure. This is why the NodPod BODY range is full of pressure blankets that are exactly 6.5lbs. You can choose your favourite colour from the range to add to your experience without searching through hundreds of listings to find the right weighted blanket. 
When settling in for the night, drape your NodPod BODY blanket evenly over your body. Because the NodPod BODY blankets are designed to be smaller than regular weighted blankets, you’ll be able to spread them across any area of your body with ease, which makes them perfect for shoulder tension or pressure therapy on your lower abdomen. 


The Best Areas to Use Weighted Blankets 
One of the best areas to position a NodPod weighted blanket is across the lap or shoulders. 
When draped over the lap while seated or wrapped gently around the shoulders, the blanket provides localised deep touch pressure, soothing tense muscles and letting your body and mind relax. 
These regions often carry stress and tension, and the weighted blanket's pressure can alleviate discomfort and promote relaxation. In addition, placing a small, weighted blanket on the chest or abdomen while lying down can help with feelings of anxiety, creating a grounding sensation that helps push you into a deeper sense of relaxation. 
Keep yourself warm, calm, and grounded this winter with the NodPod range of weighted blankets and sleep masks. We have a variety of their products available here at Relax UK, allowing you to select your favourite style for yourself or as a gift for the holidays.
