To welcome World Sleep Day on March 18, we’re compiling the best products that’ll help you get a night of well-deserved rest

There’s nothing worse than the day after a night of bad sleep—your mental state suffers, you feel slower and even everyday tasks feel harder to do.

A study has found that sleep disruption heightens stress responses, which then impacts daily functionality, including cognition and mood. Long-term consequences include hypertension and weight gain. There’s also evidence that it may increase your chances of certain cancers and deaths. 

To help you get a good night’s rest, we’re listing out the best sleep-enhancing products on the market. From meditation apps that’ll help you drift away to dreamland and science-backed supplements to a sunrise lamp that’ll trick your body to sleep better, take a look below at our selections.
