There are so many reasons you sometimes struggle to fall (or stay) asleep at night. Maybe you're building a monstrous to-do list in your head or worrying about how you reacted to a co-worker's comments earlier in the day. Perhaps you're being kept awake by sirens going off in the distance or noisy neighbors throwing yet another booze-infused party. Or maybe your partner is snoring, stealing the duvet, or slowly pushing you off the bed. Whatever the reason, a bad night's sleep is more than just frustrating at the moment—it can also leave you feeling groggy, unproductive, and moody.

We all know the negative effects of not getting a quality eight hours of sleep, but the way to achieve those quality z's is another question altogether. To help you get your best snooze yet, we rounded up (and tested) a wide variety of products aiming to help you get your best night's sleep. From weighted blankets to sleep trackers, here's everything you need to improve your chances of quality sleep. Turn on your Rainmaker app, and turn off your iPhone—it's time to sink into a deep slumber.
