This 15-pound blanket, which covers a standard queen-size bed, gets rave reviews from Amazon customers who say they're now getting a full nights sleep and waking up feeling lighter (imagine that!) and less burdened by worry.
If youre a night sweater, have no fear: The exterior is made from a cooling cotton, so it's totally breathable in all seasons. You can wash it with your sheets in the washing machine too, on the cold cycle, and just hang it out to dry. Plus, while many weighted blankets cost hundreds of dollars, this one is just under $60 on Amazon, and ships free with Amazon Prime.
Need more convincing? Just check out a few of the blanket's endorsements: I have had problems with staying asleep, and waking up in the middle of the night, followed by anxiety of not being able to get back to sleep. I have tried everything, and nothing really has worked, until now. I not only fall asleep faster, but usually can sleep the night through. If I do wake, I do not have the same level of anxiety as before. This blanket really does make you feel a sense of coziness, and comfort, to soothe the anxiety, one infinitely calmer reviewer writes. I am sleeping, dreaming, and actually not waking up until my alarm goes off, another fan echoes.
One purchaser is telling everyone she knows to add this to their cart: Within just a few minutes of draping this beautiful blanket over myself, I was feeling more relaxed than I had in months. Anxiety is awful, and sometimes you even have anxiety when you don't realize it. But this blanket is like a warm hug all over. I have suggested this blanket to every person I know. Get it for your own mental wellbeing," she says.
And yet another reviewer noted a hidden perk to sleeping under 15 pounds of weight. "I really like this and little extra bonus: My arms are getting toned from folding it every morning," she writes.
You heard it herethis blanket is an affordable, calming source of better sleep, which also happens to give you a little arm workout on the daily. Consider my holiday shopping done this year.
