Or, just to make waking up...tolerable. The alarm clock mimics a sunrise, so the light will gradually get brighter and brighter. It can also mimic a sunset to help lull you to sleep. Goodbye, blaring radar siren sound. You will not be missed. ($39.98, Amazon)
Because you’re an adult now. And that calls for a quality, eco-friendly platform bed. You’ll get storage underneath and assembly only takes five(ish) minutes. Psst..it’s been thoroughly tested so, yes, it’s sturdy. And it’ll ship to your door for free.* ($695+, Thuma)
The top layer is made of breathable, soft foam. While the base provides stability for every sleeping position imaginable. It’ll mold to your body and has an 100-night trial for those who are hesitant to commit. It’s time to rest easy. ($699+, Leesa)
It has a tiny fan inside that makes white noise. But you adjust the tone and volume. And it can be controlled via an app, so you don’t even have to get out of bed. Dogs barking? Random late-night dance parties? Hmmmm...can’t hear ya. ($79.99, Snooz)
So you can breath easily when you snooze. No more sneezing or coughing. It’s got three fan speeds, a timer feature, and an indicator light so you know when the filter needs to be changed. Inhale, exhale. ($89.99, Amazon)
Because tossing and turning = bad zzzz’s. Evenly distributed weight can produce a deeper sleep, with more serotonin and less cortisol. Aka, more relaxing vibes and less stress. Also, it’s made from very soft cotton, so it’s a must-have. ($249+, Bearaby)
Designed to stay cool throughout the night, this pillowcase will transform any old pillow that’s already on your bed. It can prevent annoying hair sweats, too. So no, you won’t need to sleep with your hair in a tight top knot. ($39.99+, Coop Home Goods)
Consider it a part of your pre-bed routine. This diffuser can run up to 12 hours straight or be set via a timer. It has 14 LED colors for mood lighting. So it can double as a night light. Feeling chill in three...two...one… ($65, Urban Outfitters)

Like a coffee table book, prints with inspiring quotes, and a puzzle featuring suffragettes. Remember them, thank them, vote in their honor.
Like a foot hammock, a chair pillow to help with back aches, and a lamp that's easy on the eyes.
When it comes to multitasking, these items say, “What? Like it’s hard?” Enter: a five-in-one cooking utensil and blow-dryer that’s also a brush. Kick back in three...two...one...
