Try this cozy blanket to GET THE BEST SLEEP OF YOUR LIFE

Can’t quiet your mind at bedtime? You’re not alone.

Experts estimate 164 million Americans experience insomnia at least once a week. Before you reach for a sleeping pill, consider a radical alternative: a weighted blanket. The weight signals the brain that you are safe and comforted, and Duke University researchers report this effect significantly increases production of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin. For the best effect, try a blanket that’s 10% of your body weight (or 15 pounds for a 150-pound woman).
