    1. This weighted cotton blanket because you sure don't need a cuddle buddy to lessen your anxiety and get a good night’s rest.

    If you're the kind of person who tosses and turns a lot before going to bed, this weighted blanket will change your life. It feels like being tucked in, or cuddling someone, except better because you don't need to deal with another person.

    Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses sand pellets for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    3. This white noise machine, that encourages your best sleep, which is the perfect way to drown out all the noise in your head.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    Cotton On

    During self-isolation, I've been doing 10 minutes of bedtime yoga each night and not only have I become more flexible, I've found that my back and hips are less sore and I sleep much easier, — which is amazing, considering my anxiety levels are currently through the roof.

It's this heavenly mix of oatmeal, lavender oil, organic cocoa butter and a bunch of other natural goodness, plus it smells divine.

    10. This LIFX Smart LED bulb, so you can set up your lights to turn different colours throughout the day and prepare you for bed.

    @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com, Amazon, @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."
