12 Items That Will Change The Way You Sleep

because beauty sleep is a beautiful thing

We know that Jesse McCartney wasn't really inquiring about sleeping habits in his song "How Do You Sleep?" but it really is an important question to ask. The sayings "sleep is for the weak" and "I'll sleep when I'm dead" continue to be recycled in 2016, but that type of mentality only leads to restless nights and stressful mornings.

"At least seven hours of sleep a night are essential for most adults to feel good and function well," says Leah Thurber, a personal trainer. "The problem is that it's not just quantity that matters, quality is very important. Your sleep schedule, bedtime habits, and day-to-day lifestyle choices can make an enormous difference to the quality of your nightly rest."

National Sleep Awareness Week is coming to an end, and daylight savings is on the horizon, so we wanted to make sure you're all stocked up before you hit the sheets. Cathy Goldstein, M.D., a neurologist at the University of Michigan Sleep Disorders Center, says that you should "make your bedroom a haven." So in other words, buying these items falls under doctor's orders. For the record, we have used some of these products and can verify that they will cause you nothing but sweet dreams. 

The gateway to dreamland is only a few clicks away.
