If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep, you’re far from alone. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 50 to 70 million adults in the United States have a sleep disorder.
That’s a ton of tossing and turning! With so many people struggling to sleep, it’s no wonder there are so many sleep products on the market. But which ones are actually helpful?
It can be hard to know which products are useful and which ones are a waste of money. To help you sort through the options, we’ve rounded up our top picks for the best sleep products to help you drift off to dreamland. From a bed scrunchie to orthopedic pillows, teas, and white noise machines, we’ve got everything you’ll need to start snoozing!
According to a 2014 study, “Using an orthopedic pillow — one that properly supports the curvature of your cervical spine — is more comfortable than using a feather or regular memory foam pillow,” says Healthline.
“Although the exact cause of insomnia can be hard to figure out, it’s clear that many of our modern lifestyle habits — such as using screens late at night, overworking, lacking exercise, lacking sunlight, and using a lot of stimulants — can set our minds racing and make it tough to settle down at night.
“Creating healthy habits that help us transition from activity to rest is crucial, and certain products on the market can help counteract the effects of this lifestyle to help us get a better night’s sleep,” says Healthline.
Here are our top picks for the best sleep products to help you catch those elusive ZZZs.
