If you’re looking to improve the quality of your sleep going into 2020, a weighted blanket might be just the solution.

With a calming effect that may help to alleviate stress and anxiety, weighted blankets have come a long way since they were first used on patients dealing with conditions like autism or behavioural disturbances.

Now easily accessible through mainstream retailers, weighted blankets have surged in popularity, but many have failed to address people who run warm at night but are still looking to benefit from their calming effects. Enter the YnM Cooling Weighted Blanket

This blanket made using bamboo fabric is naturally sweat absorbent as well as antibacterial, to keep you feeling cool and fresh all night. Filled with glass beads, this breathable blanket provides all the benefits of traditional weighted options without all the extra warmth. 

“I usually like to have lots of weight on me as I sleep but it always gets too hot - but not with this blanket,” shared one Amazon reviewer. “I can stay cool with all the weight I need!”

“Best purchase ever! This blanket had changed my sleep game forever,” added another. “My mind always used to be running all night long but this blanket has made me stay asleep when I fall asleep. Great if you sleep alone and have no one to hug you."

With a soft fabric cover, shoppers have raved that it “feels like a hug,” and has helped alleviate symptoms like restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety at night. Although not a cure for any of the above symptoms, this blanket has been racking up thousands of positive reviews with a 4.5 star rating on more than 6,500 reviews

Available in a range of colours and sizes, the YnM Cooling Weighted Blanket is suitable for everyone from excitable toddlers to seniors. When shopping for a weighted blanket, just be careful to purchase the correct size - it’s recommended to use a blanket approximately 10% of your body weight. 

Ranging from  $75 for a 5lb kids’ blanket, to $229 for a 20lb blanket, the price is on par with many other down or feather-filled duvets. Each blanket can be used it on its own, or placed inside an existing duvet cover for a soothing night’s sleep.
