    1. A weighted blanket which will crush all your feelings of insecurity.

    Amazon

    Filled with hypo-allergenic sand pellets, weighted blankets emulate the feeling of a warm hug — leaving you calm and (hopefully) snoozy. Honestly, is there anything more comforting?

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $67.95.

    2. Aromatherapy oils that encourage relaxation, no matter the day you've had.

    Amazon

    Eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint — all accounted for in this collection of essential oils, made from all-natural plant extracts.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $19.99 for a set of six.

    3. An essential oil diffuser to release aforementioned soothing fragrances into the air.

    4. Chamomile tea as a caffeine-drink substitute.

    Chamomile tea is known for its anti-anxiety effects and so is traditionally used to encourage sleep. Make yourself a cup before bed to warm your body, and send relaxation signals to your brain.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $12 for 50g.

    5. An alarm clock that doubles as a white noise machine.

    Amazon

    Half an hour before your alarm rings, this clock slowly increases brightness, emulating natural sunlight. What could be a more restful way to wake than that? My favourite feature, however, is the white noise — four different nature sounds so it feels like Mother Nature herself is rocking you to sleep.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $29.63.

    6. An eye mask for blocking out all sources of light.

    Amazon

    You could replace your existing window coverings with blackout curtains, but frankly, that would be exxy AF. Drop a few dollars on this silk eye mask and sleep like a baby.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $27.

    7. Vitamins that will have you counting sheep in no time.

    Packed with lavender, oats and a bunch of other good stuff, a couple of these before bed are a natural way to help you snooze.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $17.99.

    8. A yoga mat with guidelines for beginners.

    Amazon

    Yoga is a gentle way to release the stresses of the day from your body and mind. Marked to show correct placement of hands and feet, this is the number one best-selling yoga mat on Amazon.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $37.99.

    9. A slow-paced, meditative book to lull you to sleep.

    Straining your mind and eyes just a touch, while already in a resting position, is a quick way to make your body crave sleep.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $14.74 for the hardcover edition and $8.57 for the Kindle edition.

    10. An oats-based, lavender-scented body lotion.

    Amazon

    Straight after a warm shower, lather this lotion all over your body before hopping under the covers. The gentle massage and scent of lavender will encourage relaxation, I guarantee it.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $23.05 for 300ml.

    11. And finally, a bedside-dwelling notebook in which to write all your stresses down.

    Amazon

    By far the most effective for me. Go to bed ten minutes earlier than you're used to and spend the time writing — feelings, observations, all the things you wish you'd said but didn't (it happens to the best of us) — and rest easy.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $10.99.
