Can’t sleep? Us either.
It seems like most of us are constantly trying to catch up on sleep. But spoiler alert: we never will. According to the Center For Disease Control and Prevention, more than a third of Americans aren’t getting enough shut-eye. From work anxiety to entirely too much screen time to snoring partners, sleep is a never-ending battle. And without enough of it, we’re all a bunch of cranky, irritable jerks.
Fortunately, there’s a solution that promises to help you wake up on the right side of the bed every morning: a weighted blanket. Whether it’s the be-all and end-all sleep solution we’ve all been searching for is still up in the air, but it’s definitely worth a shot. Especially if you suffer from stress and anxiety.
We’ve rounded up weighted blanket options for every budget — all on sale up to 33% off in the Mashable Shop — so you can get more shut-eye this season. Plus, there’s also a weighted sleep mask on sale to block out light and improve the quality of your snooze sesh. May these products help the z’s multiply in your life.
