Nothing’s quite as satisfying as a good night’s rest, but nothing’s worse than waking up groggy. Poor sleep affects your memory, your immune system, and your reaction time, and no amount of coffee can make up for an evening of tossing and turning. Lifestyle changes like exercise and going to bed at the same time can help you fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer, but if you want to throw everything you can at your insomnia, here are five picks for deeper, more restorative rest.
Even if you’re already asleep, ambient blue light from night lights, standby buttons on your electronics, or other small devices can still disrupt your rest. The Manta Sleep Mask was created by industrial designers to block out every speck of light when you hit the hay for a deeper sleep. It’s adjustable for a custom fit, and it’s memory foam eye cups won’t create pressure on your face during the night. The included blackout stickers come in multiple sizes for covering up lights on electronics like power strips and chargers, and they remove easily with no residue if you need to adjust them.
If you’re getting enough shut-eye but still aren’t feeling rested when your alarm clock goes off, this blanket from Yaasa Studios might help you make the most of your time asleep. It’s constructed from fibers featuring FDA Determined Celliant Technology, which recycles the body’s natural heat energy, turning it into infrared light and then emitting it back into your cells. It’s great for recovering from athletic activity, or for just added an extra spring in your step during the day.

The quality of your sleep doesn’t just affect you: if you’ve got a thunderous snore, you’re going to wake up with a very unhappy bed partner. The Anti-Snoring Jaw strap is a breathable neoprene strap that adjusts to fit around your ears and over your head, keeping your jaw properly positioned to prevent bedroom-shaking snores. It even comes in a two-pack for couples that share their snoring habit and can’t decide who’s waking up who.
