Wake up feeling refreshed with these 5 sleep enhancers

Everyone knows the adverse effects of a bad night’s sleep. Starting the workday feeling sleep-deprived and energy-deficient is a surefire way to reduce productivity at the office and stem enthusiasm for everyday rituals. Ensuring that you awaken refreshed and bright-eyed means taking stock of your current sleeping situation, and exploring ways to make the hours you spend in bed more comfortable and conducive to rest.

Here, we’ve rounded up some accessibly-priced items that may inspire you to rethink your approach to sleep. After all, if it’s true that the average person spends more than 25 years of their life sleeping, few things in life could possibly be more important than aiming for an optimal night’s sleep.

Adequate rest, we know, can dramatically change the complexion of a day, and lead to richer, more meaningful engagement with the world. But proper rest can only begin and end with proper sleep. Paying closer attention to poor sleeping habits and patterns is the key to understanding how and why optimal sleep is more often the exception than the rule.

The products listed above are by no means the only ways of improving and enhancing the sleeping experience; they only illustrate that a few small changes can yield a more restful night—and a brighter day.

The first thing you want to do when you see a pair of baby feet isn’t cover them. You want to give them a squeeze, or (for some reason) threaten to “eat them up.” (Yeah, we all do that.) But the chances are anyone with a newborn needs to cover those feet, and tiny socks go missing. So while you may want to admire them during those precious years when feet are actually adorable, it’s a good idea to stock up on things like these five value packs of little socks to keep baby feet snug and warm.
