    25 Things That'll Help You Get Your Beauty Sleep Every Night

    You’re getting sleepy… Very, very sleepy.

    1. A weighted blanket that'll hold you tight and won't let go. The weight of the blanket mimics the pressure you'd feel when someone hugs or holds you, providing an instant calming effect.

    They're designed to be around 10% of your body weight and are believed to help with insomnia and anxiety. Reviewers noted how much easier it was to fall and stay asleep after using this weighted blanket each night. They also loved how breathable the material is, which prevented them from overheating at night.

    2. An oscillating tower fan that’ll keep you cool on warm summer nights, especially if you’re a hot sleeper — and it’s so quiet, you’ll forget it’s on. It has five different speeds, a light dimming feature, a timer, and its own remote, so you can change the settings from across the room.

    And the slim design makes it easy to store on the nights you don't need it.

    3. An activity book for anyone who has trouble falling asleep. It's filled with prompts and illustrations that'll help you channel your restless energies and busy mind into a positive and reflective activity. Reviewers say it's a fun and relaxing way to unwind before going to bed.

    These were a life saver for my mom who has a very thick mattress and a mattress topper on her bed. Even though she uses fitted sheets with deep pockets, the corners would still slide off all the time. It was beyond annoying to have to fix the sheets every time she got into bed, so we got these clips to see if they'd make a difference. After installing the clips, she hasn't had to adjust the sheets once.

    13. A body pillow that'll replace all the other pillows on your bed. The curved shape is perfect for snuggling and will support your neck, stomach, and hips, making it the perfect sleeping companion.

You can use it during the day while you work or study instead of listening to music. Or you can play it at night and let it lull you sleep, so you’ll fall asleep faster and stay asleep.

    Reviewers say it sounds like a quiet fan and helps tune out the sound of noisy roommates, neighbours, and traffic.

    "This machine is really compact (it can fit easily on your nightstand), and has two sound options: white noise or fan with ten variations. The volume can go up super high, it has a 60-minute auto shut-off feature, and it's really easy to use. Just plug it on, hit the on button, and BAM! Done. If you've had trouble falling asleep, I seriously cannot recommend this little gadget enough. I don't think I'd be able to survive without it..." —AnaMaria Glavan
