Getting a good night’s sleep at college might feel like mission impossible, but there are tricks you can use to achieve it. There are many sleep accessories you can use to improve the quality of your sleep, and these five are a good place to start.
Your pillow will often play a crucial role in the quality of your sleep, whether you’re in college or not, so make sure to get a comfy, supportive pillow and consider investing in a model filled with memory foam.
Blackout curtains can help you block out the light coming from the outside, but using privacy curtains is also an option if your dormmate objects to blackout curtains.
Eye masks can be as effective in blocking the outside light as blackout curtains and you should have one at hand at all times during your college years.
Even if you set quiet hours with your roommate, you’ll be dealing with noise from time to time, so a pair of earplugs always comes in handy.
Essential oil diffusers are a great addition to your dorm thanks to their calming effect. Lavender oil is best used before going to sleep because it will put you in a relaxed state right before bed.
