Sleep is integral to our overall health — but between things like anxiety, restless leg syndrome or too much screen time, getting a good night’s sleep can prove difficult.

In recent years, weighted blankets have gained popularity as a way to improve sleep quality by helping to relieve overall stress by increasing feel-good chemicals in the brain like oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin.

While there are plenty of weighted blanket brands on the market, they can prove to be an expensive purchase. Luckily, shoppers can save up to 43 per cent on twin size ZonLi Weighted blankets as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day — but only until midnight PST.

What is it?

ZonLi Weighted Blankets are designed to feel "soft like a hug" and release feel-good chemicals to help you sleep or relax while you watch TV, read or study The ideal weighted blanket should be six to 10 per cent of the body weight of whomever is using the blanket; using a heavier weight than is necessary could actually cause more sleep issues and put your body under unnecessary stress. ZonLi's twin size blankets are available in 12 and 15-lb weights, ideal for those between 150-190 lbs (other sizes and weights are available depending on your body weight).

"I bought this blanket because I have trouble falling asleep. I couldn’t be happier with the blanket - not only does it put me to sleep quicker but it also helps me stay asleep," one shopper wrote. "At night I usually bring it to the living room and lay down with it and this helps me relax before I hit the hay for the night. To be honest, I don’t have anything to complain about except for not having two separate blankets so I don’t have to bring the 20 pound blanket back and forth. That might have to be a future purchase."

"I love this blanket! not only was it a great price, but the fabric is nice and soft (you don't really need a cover but ill probably buy one anyways)," another wrote. "It also has a variety of different weights for sale- I'm 140 lbs and I probably would buy a heavier one next time for bed; this one is good for the couch or lounging. Highly recommend for people with chronic pain and anxiety!"

Although a majority of ZonLi reviews are positive, some customers were quick to point out that the weighted blanket shouldn't be a replacement for traditional bedding.

"I bought this blanket because I heard nothing but positive things about weighted blankets," one shopper wrote of their four star review. "I absolutely love it! It does help me sleep better but the only thing I'd warn is that it's not warm at all. I put my own velvet blanket on top of me first then the weighted blanket and it's a keeper."
