According to www.sleep.org, if you struggle to get a good night’s sleep, the answer might be to get a weighted blanket. These covers, also known as gravity blankets, mirror the deep touch pressure of hugging. The site states that this “encourages your body to produce oxytocin, which can relieve pain and stress while boosting your immune system.” The sensation also produces serotonin which provides a calming effect and can enhance sleep. They are crafted with glass beads the size and texture of sand to create heavier, smoother feel while other quilts are made with a lumpier fiberfill.

These blankets have proven therapeutic value for individuals with conditions such as ADHD and Autism, but they can also be beneficial for anyone with anxiety or trouble sleeping. Amazon’s Choice for weighted blankets is the YnM Weighted Blanket which is discounted for Black Friday.
