Soothe Anxiety with a Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets have plastic or glass beads inside, which help the blanket provide similar benefits to that of swaddling a baby. They can make the person feel hugged and secure, and this has a beneficial impact on the brain.
With a weighted blanket, you can soothe the day's anxiety, enveloped in a hug, but what about those cold nights when your blanket could do with extra features, like heat? Check out our electric blankets range to get you warmed up this winter. If your old mattress still has life in it but could do with pepping up, scroll through our mattress toppers and protectors to keep your bed bouncy and fresh. If you're after some fluffy and cosy blankets, look at our quilts and duvets, and for a soft place to lay your head, browse our range of pillows. We have some fantastic deals on bedding, including sets in our bedding collection.

Is a Weighted Blanket Right for You?
A weighted blanket for anxiety works by using deep pressure stimulation, which boosts melatonin and reduces cortisol, promoting sleep and reducing stress. It also stimulates serotonin production, which improves mood. These are the feel-good vibes needed to ensure a blissful night's sleep.

You can use your weighted blanket wherever you like to relax, in your living room, outdoors or in bed at night. We offer machine washable blankets to keep them in great shape, as well as soft and breathable weighted blanket covers for an extra layer of comfort and added washability. Some of these are double-sided with fleece and flannel for the extra snuggle factor.

Our weighted blankets come in various colours: grey, pink, navy, royal blue, turquoise, beige, charcoal, white and yellow. We also have a range of patterns and designs.

We have a massive selection of different types of weighted blankets, in sizes including a king-size weighted blanket, a weighted blanket in queen size or a children's weighted blanket. We offer different thicknesses, from light to heavy-weighted blankets, and we even have cooling weighted blankets for the summer.
We stock popular weights such as the lighter 3kg weighted blanket and the heavier 9kg weighted blanket, but we can boast sizes as light as 2.3 and as high as 11kg. We also stock materials to suit every need, whether you're after cotton, microfibre or a chunky knitted weighted blanket.

Benefits of Weighted Blankets
A weighted blanket simulates the experience of being held, and this can have several benefits, especially for anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD and autism. Moreover, the weight of the blanket can minimise the impact of external stimuli, which could help the person relax when over-stimulated. It could also ease muscle tension in the body and reduce pain perception.
Feel comfortable and secure with a calmed nervous system, better sleep, eased stress and soothed anxiety. It's an investment in your mental health that's worthwhile. If you want to buy the best weighted blanket in Australia, shop at Payday Deals.

How to wash a weighted blanket
To machine wash your weighted blanket, use a mild detergent and warm water on a delicate setting. It's best not to use fabric softeners. When drying, use only a mild or medium dryer setting and pause it to fluff it out occasionally.
How heavy should a weighted blanket be?
Weighted blankets are available in weights between 2.3 and 13 kg, and it's advised to select one that is roughly 10 % of your body weight and fits snuggly to the size of the bed with no overhang. Smaller sizes are available for children.
