The simple trick for a better night’s sleep
Weighted blankets hit the wellness scene hard in the last few years—and for good reason. People have raved about their ability to calm anxiety, shush stress, and help those with insomnia sleep more soundly. Parents have even said that it’s helped their children calm down before bedtime and sleep through the night, as well as provide therapeutic benefits for those with sensory-processing disorders, reports New York Magazine. Though there’s not much scientific data to support these claims, the anecdotal stories are certainly compelling. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or buying a gift, these highly-rated weighted blankets are definitely worth a try.
