When you've got a lot on your mind, or you're feeling lonely or down, it can prove difficult to get to sleep.
But according to almost 7,000 people, there's a simple way to help you get those much-needed eight hours in bed.
Thousands can't stop raving about a blanket that's currently being sold on Amazon and it's not just any old blanket.
The product is weighted, and this feature is said to "emulate the feeling of a comforting hug" in order to bring a sense of "calm, comfort and coziness".
Made by Quility, the blanket comes in several different weights, with the lightest starting from five lbs and going all the way to the heaviest, which is 25 lbs.
The company recommends that you select the option that is 10 to 12 percent of your body weight.
As well as different weights, the sleep aid can be purchased in several different colours, including pink, yellow, grey and blue.
Prices start from around £46 for the lightest blanket, while the 25lbs one will set you back about £156.
A whopping 88 percent of the customer reviews left on the product's page have been five star.
One person claimed they had been "sleeping the best ever" since purchasing the blanket as the "additional weight adds a sense of comfort and security that traditional comforters just can't match".
Another wrote: "After about a week of use, I feel like the blanket works incredibly well. I know it will vary from person to person, but I've been sleeping eight to nine hours a night, falling asleep faster, tossing and turning less, and feeling better in the morning."
A third added: "I have to say that this blanket is one of the BEST investments I've made, hands down! It's worth every penny.
"It is VERY WELL MADE and I'm sleeping BETTER than ever before. The extra addition to detail is apparent. The corners and side of the blanket have sewn-in tabs that allow you to tie and then zip the blanket securely inside the cozy, soft cover. It's attractive and looks like a regular blanket on the bed."
Despite this, there were a few people who claimed the item did little to help their anxiety, and some complained about the size of the weights inside and said they moved about too much.
