1. Lavender essential oil for spritzing or self-massage:

amazon.com

"I mix a few drops of doTERRA lavender essential oil in a spray bottle with water and spray it over my bed sheets and pillow, or give myself a mini hand/foot massage. It works like a charm, except when I accidentally oversleep afterwards!" —Sarah Rooksberry, Facebook

Get it ($23.10) here.

2. Cozy PJs to put you in a sleeping mood:

amazon.com

"Most recently I bought my first pair of matching pajamas (random, I know, but I always just slept in old T-shirts), and that has been awesome! It’s another deliberate way to prepare my mind for bed." —wewereonabreakk

3. A heating pad to keep your feet warm:

amazon.com

"I have extremely cold feet that don’t warm up easily in winter, which has kept me up for hours before. But now, I have a heating pad that I put in the microwave, place at the foot of the bed, and boom! Warm cozy feet and easy sleeping." —combatwombat1989

Find one ($22 and up) here.

4. A light-blocking sleep mask:

bedbathandbeyond.com

"My sleep completely changed once I invested $10 in a sleep mask from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I used to wake during the night, and light from electronics and outside the window would make it hard to go back to sleep. But now, since the mask blocks out that light, it's easy for me to go to sleep and stay asleep." —Amy Jones, Facebook

Grab one ($9.99) here.

6. Earplugs that block out sleep-sabotaging noises:

amazon.com

"They're especially great if you have a snoring partner. Just make sure someone wakes you when your alarm goes off in the morning, because you won’t hear that either." —wolfgangm42cb8207a

Grab a pack ($3.89) here.

9. A super-snuggly sheepskin rug:

amazon.com

"I sleep on them and under them. It’s like you are floating on a cloud — no pressure point pain, it’s warm in winter cool in summer so no more night sweats, and it retains body heat if you need to get up during the night so your space is still snugly warm when you get back. Bliss!" —ShinySparklyChaos

Find one ($49.99) here.

10. A noise machine with multiple sound settings:

amazon.com

"I need some kind of noise. I have trouble sleeping if it's too quiet believe it or not so I used a noise machine and switch between white noise, rainfall, and babbling brook. I would also listen to crickets but hubby can't stand them." —Tammy Lovato Bennett, Facebook

Pick one up ($19.97) here.
