There’s nothing more frustrating than curling up in bed only find yourself still tossing and turning hours later. The effects stay with you the next day, impacting your mood, your work performance and your interactions with family and friends. Doctors emphasize that sleep is important to every function of the body, especially as we age. Why not start off your spring with some high-quality sleep?
For a better night’s rest, lots of folks swear by weighted blankets. And guess what: Amazon’s best-selling weighted blanket comes in 15 different sizes and weights, and a huge range of colors, so you can get one that complements your bedroom perfectly. Right now all of those varieties are $10 off thanks to an on-page coupon, so you can snag one of these beauties starting at $40.
Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, plus exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
Filled with hypoallergenic premium glass beads, this blanket applies gentle pressure to your body, helping to relax and soothe you — and making a good night's rest available to you anytime. It imparts the feeling of a warm hug.
“It really helps you sleep,” wrote a delighted reviewer. “I was afraid the weighted blankets were just a gimmick but when this one went on sale I ordered [it] for myself for Christmas. Well, it didn’t make it under the tree for I tried it out one night and now can’t sleep as well without it. I’m cold-natured. This keeps me warm but not hot... I find I toss and turn less and just sleep better.”
Bedding — especially good bedding — is notoriously expensive. But this addition is a bargain. Snag this multipurpose blanket while it’s marked down. For the most comfortable experience, opt for one that’s roughly 10% of your body weight. For example, a person who's about 150 pounds is best off with a 15-pound blanket.
The YnM weighted blanket has an average 4.6-star rating and 44,100 five-star reviews on Amazon! The 5-pound option is meant for kids (but it also makes a nice throw for the couch). The heaviest blanket is 30 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, it can easily be placed in a duvet cover with matching dimensions. This way, you won’t have to get rid of the bedspread you love to reap 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,” said another happy shopper.
Made from breathable cotton and cooling bamboo, the YnM blanket soothes and regulates temperature, while it provides comfort.
“I love this blanket...” one enthusiastic 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.
