Best sleep products for a better night’s sleep
Sleep should be simple: Lie down, close your eyes, saw logs. But if you’ve ever struggled to fall asleep — as 40 million Americans do — you know it’s not that easy. In fact, most insomnia sufferers would gladly fork over a paycheck for these sleep products in exchange for a few hours of shuteye.
This means that the market for gimmicky sleep products — from snake oil supplements to Himalayan salt therapy, hypnosis, and everything in between — is ripe. But not everything on the market is a total sham.
I’m all about sleep aids. Seriously: Regularly skimping on shuteye has been linked to weight gain and decreased productivity, and even ramps up your risk of chronic health conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure. (Not to mention being sleep deprived feels pretty crummy.) That’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite ingenious sleep products that promise to help you sleep better every night, including specialized bedding, bedroom gadgets, light-blocking devices, and more. Stock up and start getting the Z’s you need.
