Obsessed With Sleep? Then You Will Love These Weighted Blankets
If sleep is truly one of the universe's greatest gifts to humankind, then a weighted blanket might just be the greatest gift you can give yourself. While excellent for those suffering from insomnia and/or anxiety, these comforting blankets can improve everyone's slumber, no Ambien required. They've been reported to feel like a big hug, and that is no small feat. Hugs boost your endorphins and increase the production of serotonin — aka the happy hormones. Higher levels of serotonin and endorphins equal less stress, anxiety relief, and basically the best sleep of your life.
The benefits of a weighted blanket are not limited to evening hours and can be useful after a particularly stressful day, during a heart-wrenching episode of This Is Us, or when you just need a hug. The cost is not insignificant, but there are many options at a variety of price points. Read on for the best weighted blankets on the market that fit almost every budget.
