Do You Have Trouble Sleeping?

ZonLi Weighted Blanket

Maybe give this nifty item a go!

Nothing worse than turning in for the night and then tossing and turning for hours trying to get some sleep.

7.4 million adults in this country claim they are sleep deprived, and a lack of sleep over time, can really affect a person’s physical and mental health.

But instead of looking to pills or medication, many are turning to ‘weighted blankets’.

Weighted blankets are filled with small objects like pellets, discs or beads of polypropylene plastic or glass. The weight, also referred to as the hug effect, is believed to lower the heart rate and increase serotonin and dopamine.

They range in price from $99-$379.
