    3. A set of silicone anti-snoring nose vents to dilate your nostrils and help promote healthy air flow, so you won't wake yourself (or other people!) up with your snoring.

    5. A plush memory foam mattress topper to quickly transform any old spring mattress into an oasis — this helps distribute your weight on your mattress more evenly to reduce pressure on your joints, so you're less likely to toss and turn.

    6. A cooling weighted blanket made with natural glass beads on the inside for weighted pressure that some reviewers say helps with insomnia and anxiety, so all those "!!!" parts of your brain might be a little more "..." when you're trying to stay asleep.

    10. A set of blackout curtains if you want to prolong the ~darkness~ — these will block out sunlight (and help reduce noise!) to your bedroom, and come in so many different colors and sizes that you're bound to find one to match your setup.

    19. Or a subscription to Liberate, a meditation app designed as a safe space for the Black community that includes meditations, practices, and talks led by over 40 BIPOC teachers.

    20. A set of bed bands to lock your fitted sheets neatly into place once and for all, so you can finally get the peaceful, untangled sleep you deserve every night.

    21. A full body pillow that yes, was initially designed for pregnancy, but is so versatile and handy that anyone can make good use of it. The wrap around design is excellent for back, leg, and hip support, so once you find a comfortable position at night, you're much more likely to *stay* in it.

    22. A Tuft & Needle adaptive foam mattress to provide full body pressure relief by supporting your body's most vulnerable pressure points and muscles like your neck, shoulders, hips, and knees *without* that "sinking into the mattress" feeling. It's also designed to be heat-wicking and breathable, so you won't wake up from overheating in the middle of the night.

    23. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses to help defend your eyeballs against the strain of your transition from phone to laptop to television to laptop to phone, aka your eyes' new itinerary. These can also promote better sleep by blocking blue light from your screen at night, which generally signals to your eyes that it's daytime (and makes them want to be awake at a time that is, well, deeply inconvenient for you).

    24. A bedside lamp with seven brightness settings and five color options, including warmer tones that won't disrupt your sleep cycle the way blue light will. Blue light in the day, orange light before bed — get yourself a lamp that can do both!!
