The Internet is Obsessed With These Weighted Blankets Under $50

High stress levels and racing thoughts can make you toss and turn at night, making it essentially impossible to fall, and stay, asleep. In the morning, this lack of quality sleep can make you feel completely drained and miserable throughout the day.

Weighted blankets have been popping up all over social media feeds as they have seen a surge in popularity, as proponents say that they help to relieve stress, anxiety and insomnia. Weighted blankets are just what they sound like — heavy blankets, weighing roughly 15 pounds or more that are filled with materials such as plastic pellets. It’s said that the added pressure from the blanket has a calming effect since you feel like you are being hugged or swaddled. Since the weighted blanket makes it slightly more difficult to move around, it makes it harder for you to disturb your sleep.

So if you’re looking to get a better night’s sleep, a weighted blanket is definitely worth a try. (Just remember that the weight of the blanket should be roughly 10 percent of your body weight, but it also depends on your preference.) Here are some weighted blankets (all under $50!) that the internet is obsessed with.
