    14. Light a soy wax oil candle that will last longer than your average candle, meaning more time in bed, which is clearly the goal here.


    Promising Review: "I've been using this candle a few times a week during to get ready for bed. I often toss and turn during the night, but have found that this helps me get to sleep quicker and stay asleep. I light it for about 20-30 mins, climb into bed to read a book, and a few minutes later I find myself dozing off. I quickly snuff the candle, and curl up for a restful night." —AmazonCustomer

    Promising review: "This pillow is SO much fun. I was looking for a "fidget toy" for tv watching and thought this would fit the bill. I got the pink/good combo and it was worth every (reasonably priced) penny! The back side is very soft and could be used as a non-pokey nap pillow. But the fun side is SO much fun. We can't stop playing with it!"—AmazonCustomer

    Promising review: "What I love about these dots is there's a great balance between the larger dots, the medium sized ones, and the smaller ones. They really are the perfect size to create small galaxies. They are extraordinarily bright for a glow-in-the-dark product, they are fairly cheap to purchase, and they stick to my walls perfectly!" —Jaden

    Promising review: "I have some super bright LEDs on the fan controllers on my main PC, which just happens to be across the room from my girlfriend's side of the bed. The lights shine directly at her and are quite annoying to a good nights sleep. I have both the original strength and blackout versions of this product and I used a combination of both on my computer. I had plenty in the needed sizes to cover all the lights I wanted too. They work perfectly." —Alex
