  • Amazon's slashing the price of a bunch of popular weighted blanket options.

  • Weighted blankets reportedly reduce cortisol (a.k.a. a chemical that's linked to those stressed feels) while increasing that mood-boosting serotonin and dopamine.

  • Pro tip: For best results, pick up a blanket that's about 10 percent of your body weight.

Let's face it: 2021 has already been...a year. There are plenty of ways to practice self-care right now, but if you're still feeling a little 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? Well, yes. These layers are typically filled with weighted beads to recreate the calming effect of a snuggle sesh, hug, or really good massage. (I mean, all three sound good to me.) In fact, weighted blankets reportedly reduce cortisol (a.k.a. a chemical that's linked to those stressed feels) while increasing that mood-boosting serotonin and dopamine.

And, 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 still searching for that perfect (albeit belated) holiday gift, these can help you get your chill on.
