Seeking comfort to sleep well?

The latest miracle cure for poor sleep caused by stress and anxiety is a weighted blanket, designed to mimic the sensation of being hugged or spooned by an imaginary friend. Shown to increase serotonin and melatonin levels and decrease cortisol, weighted blankets have been used for years to help children with autism, and now several companies have wisened up to their usefulness for adults — even for couples where one partner isn’t much of a snuggler. One company, Gravity Blankets, has launched on public funding site Kickstarter looking to sell blankets in three sizes and weights.
