If you find yourself having a hard time sleeping during the pandemic, you're not alone. It really threw us in for a loop. Our usual routine and lifestyle changed so much in such a short period, hence, our messed-up body clocks.

If you've been scouring the internet for tips and tricks on how to sleep better, we're sure you've come across recommendations like calming playlists, reducing gadget use before bedtime, and a shit ton of lavender oil (seriously, a lot). If you're looking for a new option that doesn't involve aromatherapy, then you have to try using a weighted blanket.

It is essentially a therapeutic blanket that weighs between five to 30 pounds.
