8 Products That’ll Help You Get Great Sleep and Wake Up Happy

You’re going to spend one-third of the year sleeping in bed. Let’s make it a dreamy place.

Sleep Products Sound Machine

A Sound Machine & Sunrise Alarm Clock

First things first: Replace your jarring phone alarm with this all-in-one gadget. At night, it’s a sound machine and meditation guide to help you fall asleep fast, and in the a.m., it’s a gentle alarm clock that uses gradual light to mimic a sunrise and help you wake up naturally. Best of all, it keeps your phone out of the bedroom—which means you’ll be less likely to start (and end) the day with doomscrolling.

Sleep Products Eye MaskImage: Suech and Beck

A Light Shield

Sleep masks may be a glam bedtime accessory, but they help you get a good night’s sleep, too. Darkness cues the body to produce melatonin, the natural hormone responsible for regulating your circadian rhythm. Any light exposure can impede that process, making it harder to fall and stay asleep. A sleep mask creates the dark environment your body needs.
