There’s nothing more frustrating than curling up in bed, and then, hours later, you’re still struggling to fall asleep. The effects of a night spent tossing and turning bleed into the following day, impacting your performance at work, interactions with friends and family, and everything in-between.

For a better night’s rest, tens of thousands of reviewers recommend sleeping under a weighted blanket. And guess what? Amazon’s top-selling weighted blanket is nearly 50 percent off right now! It comes in 21 colors and 14 different sizes and weights. It starts at $40, down from $80.

The innermost layer is made of hypo-allergenic premium glass beads, which imitate the feeling of a warm hug while you doze off.

“This is the BEST purchase I have ever made,” wrote a delighted reviewer. “I have been an insomniac for years and have never successfully been treated. Even with many doctors appointments and medications. NOTHING worked! On top of that I have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I thought I would give this blanket a try...I have had my blanket for three days and I have been basically sleeping in a coma-like state!!! It is the soundest and best sleep I have ever had in my life.”

Bedding — especially good bedding — is notoriously expensive. A blanket that can do double duty as a comforter, a duvet, a throw or just as an added layer on your bed can run well into the triple digits, so take advantage of the sale and grab this multipurpose blanket while it’s marked down.

Don’t just go ahead and get the heaviest blanket available. For the most comfortable experience, opt for one that’s roughly 10 percent of your body weight. For example, a 15-pound blanket is best for someone that’s 150 pounds.

The YnM weighted blanket has an average 4.6-star rating and over 29,000 perfect five-star reviews! The jaw-dropping sale applies to each size, from the 5-pound option meant for kids, to the 30-pound blanket for adults weighing around 300 pounds.

“My 8-year-old was having trouble sleeping and this has helped almost instantly! He has ADHD and struggles with sleep,” a five-star reviewer wrote. “This blanket has been a lifesaver. He now wakes up happier and sleeps through the night. When he does wake up he falls back asleep quickly. Great price and wonderful quality blanket. I would highly recommend this if you have an anxiety ridden child who loves that deep pressure and seeks it.”

The multipurpose blanket can be used in any way you choose: as a comforter, as a living room throw, and, if you want to get creative, it can easily be placed in a duvet with matching dimensions. This way, you won’t have to get rid of the bedspread you love to reap all the benefits of a weighted blanket.

“I’d read the great reviews for this and was hopeful it would help increase sleep time and comfort, and wow! Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept over 7 hours!! Same for my second night. This is so comfortable and comforting,” another shopper raved.

Made from breathable cotton and cooling bamboo, the YnM blanket soothes and regulates temperature, along with providing comfort.

“I love this blanket,” one enthused shopper wrote. “The cotton duvet cover is cool and comfortable (I sleep with a fan even in the winter), even with the weight of the blanket. The weight is perfect. This blanket has helped me relax enough to fall asleep faster and helps me stay asleep longer than I have for months.”
