Are you getting enough sleep? In our busy, modern world, we humans are generally not sleeping enough. Here are some items that can help you get some z's.
Sleep Remedy has been specifically designed to replenish the nutritionally and stress induced deficiencies that interfere with normal physiologic cascades that lead to deep, restful, and restorative sleep. This product will help change the way you sleep forever. I absolutely love it and use it myself every night! My sleep has never been so deep and I wake up fully rested and ready for the day.
Himalayan Salt Lamp
The lamp is made from salt crystals from the Himalayan Mountains. Unlit, the crystal’s rough-hewn, irregular surface looks pink. When lit with the included 15-watt bulb, it gives a warm amber glow. You can even change the color of the bulb to give a different hue to the lighting area. Whether in a child’s room, near the television or computer, or in your office, the lamp, sitting on its round neem base, provides a natural touch.
Salt Crystal is a Natural Air Purifier
The Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Lamp also works as an air purifier. When lit, the lamp emits negative ions that fight against positively charged particles that cause you to feel stuffy and sluggish. The lit salt crystal clears the air naturally of allergens like smoke, pet dander, pollens, and other air pollutants. It dilutes odors so that you can breathe easier. People with asthma often find it helpful in reducing their symptoms. You can keep the lamp lit for as long as you like to maintain this purifying effect.

White Noise Machine (fan inside)
I much prefer this to other noise machines because instead of a digital recording, it has an actual fan inside that creates a sound of rushing air.

10,000 LUX Bright Light Therapy Lamp
I’ve been using light therapy during the dark winter months for a while now and it’s been a real help with my sleep and mood.
Combat the Winter Blues, circadian sleep disorders, jet lag, shift work adjustment and low energy with this contemporary, discreet bright light therapy lamp. Bright light therapy experts recommend lamps that deliver 10,000 LUX in a broad field of illumination. The Day-Light Sky lamp provides 99.3% UV-filtered white light and projects light from above for effective therapy.
How Bright Light Therapy Works:
Scientists believe that bright light therapy works on different levels, producing a combined beneficial effect. When used at an appropriate morning hour (or in rare cases, evening hour), it corrects the misalignment of the internal body clock, known as the circadian rhythm, with external night and day.
Wake-Up Light with Sunrise Simulation
Philips Wake-up Light is ideal for anyone who finds it difficult to get up in the morning, especially in the dark winter months. Its gradual sunrise eases you awake, gently and naturally, just like a summer’s dawn, and just in case, there’s a back-up beeper. Wake-up feeling fresh and energetic – just as nature intended.
Inspired by the naturally brightening light of the sunrise, the Philips HF3500 Wake-up Light gradually increases in brightness over a 30-minute period before your wakeup time, growing more intense until your room is filled with bright yellow light. This process of changing and increasing light stimulates your body to wake up naturally and comfortably. By the time light has filled the room, a gentle beep completes the wakeup experience, leaving you ready for the day ahead. Scientifically proven to be a more effective way of waking up, the Wake-up Light also leaves you more energized and in a better mood upon awakening.
- Wake-up naturally and improve your ability to function in the morning

Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, and Survival
With research gleaned from the National Institutes of Health, T.S. Wiley and Bent Formby deliver staggering findings: Americans really are sick from being tired. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression are rising in our population. We’re literally dying for a good night’s sleep.
Our lifestyle wasn’t always this way. It began with the invention of the lightbulb.
When we don’t get enough sleep in sync with seasonal light exposure, we fundamentally alter a balance of nature that has been programmed into our physiology since day one. This delicate biological rhythm rules the hormones and neurotransmitters that determine appetite, fertility, and mental and physical health. When we rely on artificial light to extend our day until 11 p.m., midnight, and beyond, we fool our bodies into living in a perpetual state of summer. Anticipating the scarce food supply and forced inactivity of winter, our bodies begin storing fat and slowing metabolism to sustain us through the months of hibernation and hunger that never arrive. Our own survival instinct, honed over millennia, is now killing us.
Wiley and Formby also reveal:
-That studies from our own government research prove the role of sleeplessness in diabetes, heart disease, cancer, infertility, mental illness, and premature aging
-Why the carbohydrate-rich diets recommended by many health professionals are not only ridiculously ineffective but deadly
-Why the lifesaving information that can turn things around is one of the best-kept secrets of our day.
Lights Out is one wake-up call none of us can afford to miss.
Blue Blocking Glasses
For those who can’t—or won’t—unplug in the evening, several companies offer blue blockers, which are glasses that filter out the wavelengths in the blue part of the spectrum. Exposure to high levels of that light close to bedtime can suppress the production of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin. This is the pair I own, and they actually performed best in a recent Consumer Reports test. There are may expensive options out there, but these $8 ones work great!
Natural Calm (original)
I love this stuff! It helps me to relax and fall asleep. Natural Calm is a fantastic powder that you mix with 2-3 ounces of hot water, right before bed. Let is fizz, then stir until dissolved. Fill with warm water and enjoy. Contains 350 mg of Ionic Magnesium Citrate which may help with stress, constipation, blood pressure, cramps and cardiovascular health.
Safety Information: Consuming too much Calm magnesium may result in loose stools. For children under four, for pregnant or lactating women, or if you have kidney problems, an obstructed bowel or are currently on medication, consult with your doctor.
