A security blanket for adults that promotes good sleep

I’ve suffered with bad sleep patterns for years, but I apparently haven’t known much about a lot of the simpler things that have been used for years to promote good sleep habits.  Instead of nighttime rituals, medications, light therapy, and the like, weighted blankets have been used in niche medical communities for many to promote …
