There’s nothing like a good night’s rest to feel invigorated and invincible. Unfortunately almost half of all Americans suffer from some level of sleep disorder. So instead of counting sheep, count on the following five products to help you out.
To ensure a deep sleep, make sure your bedroom is draft-free, dark and soundproof with blackout roller shades (1) which can be mounted inside the window frame—or outside to block even more light. Unlike blackout curtains, roller shades have fewer surface areas to attract allergens and dust, which contribute to discomfort. Learn more at Elite, JC Penney and The Shade Store.
If you’re on the road and unable to darken your hotel room, check out the world’s largest collection of sleep masks (2) at Dream Essentials. Offering a wide selection of styles, colors and patterns, these masks let you look good while you’re sleeping and even better once you awake after a sound slumber.
Reading between the sheets
If you’re the type who falls asleep while reading, then reach for The Effortless Sleep Method: The Incredible New Cure for Insomnia and Chronic Sleep Problems (3) by former insomniac Sasha Stephens. The handy paperback provides a step-by-step sleep training program to undermine insomnia.
Unlike artificial sleep aids which suppress brain activity, natural herbal remedies such as HERBALmax’s Insomnia Formula helps relax the mind via organic herbs. All-natural and vegetarian-friendly, the product has no known side effects and does not cause dependency or drowsiness during the day.
If you’re skeptical about ingesting pills, another natural approach is the Breathslim® System (5) which is completely drug and chemical free. This breathing aid causes no negative side effects or allergies since it depends on only two elements: water and air. Practicing breathing exercises for 20 minutes a day with Breathslim® will improve lung capacity, elevate energy, reduce stress, oxygenate your body, and lead to a sounder sleep—not to mention helping to reduce snoring!
