We’ve all been there. Those long nights when no matter what you try, you can’t seem to get comfortable. When counting sheep and drinking warm milk and any other old wives’ tales you fall back on just isn’t getting the job done. The good news? It doesn’t have to be like that. There are a number of ways you can make your bedroom the most comfortable place ever, and ways that you can make your nighttime routine the most relaxing part of your day, so it’s easy to settle in and get to snoozing. The items listed here will help you do all this, and they’re readily available on Amazon so you can try them out ASAP. And don’t fret, none of them will break the bank either.

There are a quite a few suggestions to consider here, but speaking from personal experience, weighted blankets are worth their weight in gold. I would never tell anyone how to live but if you haven’t tried one yet, I recommend starting there. I also suggest stashing your phone further than arm’s length away while you sleep, and if you’re used to scrolling or skimming before bed, try reading a book or magazine by book light instead. Need a few more suggestions? Just stay awake long enough to keep scrolling.
