Welcome to Sleep Awareness Week 2022!
Sleep Awareness Week is March 13 to 19 and offers a time to snuggle up and catch some Zs! I should note that it’s a tad ironic that this year, it falls on the week AFTER many of us have sprung ahead for daylight savings time, but here we are.
If you’re like me, sleep is often an elusive goal. For years, I’ve been an insomniac, so I’m typically on a quest to find products, methods, or approaches to stop my brain from making lists and keeping me up at night. You know the lists. Things you have to do tomorrow, a litany of people you need to call, errands you need to run, or a review of everything you sucked at that day. None of this is helpful, so looking for solutions to relax and sleep is vital to your mental health and overall well-being.
Some of the most serious potential problems associated with sleep deprivation are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, or stroke. Other potential issues include obesity, depression, impairment in immunity, and lower sex drive. Bottom line — no sleep is no Bueno.
Below, I share some products that you may want to investigate to help in your mission to get some quality rest. You owe yourself to get those extra hours you so desperately need.
But first… my disclaimer: Some of these products were sent to me to try out. Others, I ordered solely on my own and loved them. No one has paid me to include any of these products in this piece, and I don’t work for or make a profit off of any of these companies. This is just one consumer speaking to another saying, “Hey there! These products don’t suck! Check them out!”
And with that, let’s dive into the Retail-Therapy Round-Up for Sleep Awareness Week!
