Let's face it: 2021 has already been...a year. We could all use some self-care. There are plenty of ways to practice it, but if you're feeling particularly antsy, you might want to consider adding a weighted blanket to your cart. Fortunately, Amazon's slashing the price of a bunch of popular options.
I know what you're thinking: Weighted blankets are pretty popular, but do they actually live up to the hype? Yes. These layers are typically filled with weighted beads to recreate the calming effect of snuggling, a hug, or a really good massage. (I mean, all three sound good to me.) In fact, weighted blankets reportedly reduce cortisol (a hormone that's linked to feelings of stress) while increasing that mood-boosting serotonin and dopamine.
As if you needed another reason to pick up a weighted blanket, a bunch of best-selling styles on Amazon are now discounted. From a faux fur-lined option, a polished quilted version, or a blanket that looks like a typical duvet, you're bound to find something that fits your bedroom and budget. (Pro tip: For best results, pick up a blanket that's about 10 percent of your body weight. In other words, a 15-pound blanket is perfect for anyone who weighs around 150 pounds.)
Whether you want to take your self-care routine to the next level or are still searching for that perfect, belated holiday gift, these blankets can help you bliss out.
