My earliest memories take place way past my bedtime, when I would be called by the darkness to read and play pretend. In fact, I’m convinced that most of my life has been spent trying to fall asleep faster, staring at the ceiling as I sample every suggestion out there (counting sheep is bullshit, btw). But as the moon’s light shines, I’ve never been able to quiet my always-overthinking brain…until I started bringing in backup — with products that are meant to help you hit the hay, and hit it hard.
When it comes to purchasing products that double as a ticket to Dreamland, I am a connoisseur. If you need someone to recommend a lavender hand cream or a sleep-inducing lamp or even a comforter color, look no further. I have a lifetime’s worth of experience trying to sleep.
With that, I bring you the 21 Amazon products that will help you fall asleep faster.
