3. Philips Wake-Up Light
I’ve been using a Wake-up Light for a few years now and I wouldn’t ever go back to any other way of waking up. By gradually lighting up, it mimics the natural, gentle wake up that comes with the sunrise. At this time of year, it’s a struggle to get up in the dark but evidence shows the natural increase in light brings your body out of sleep and ready to wake up just as the alarm (if you choose to use it) goes off. And it’s not just in the morning that this light is helpful. It also has a dimming feature which means you can use it at night to mimic the setting of the sun, making the most of our body’s natural response to reducing light - to feel sleepy and get ready for a good night’s sleep.
4. Eye Pillow from Remy Sleep
Have you spotted our newest exciting product? The Remy Eye Pillow is perfectly weighted and scented with lavender to help you relax and unwind at night. Lavender has been shown to aid sleep and our eye pillow can be used hot or cold to give you the perfect aromatherapy experience.
5. Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works
This gorgeous spray has been shown to help you fall asleep more easily and to sleep better through the night. It contains a delicious blend of lavender, chamomile, and vetiver to soothe the mind and the body and can be used during pregnancy too.
6. Luxury Pyjamas by Desmond and Dempsey
