Whether you are a night owl or early riser, everyone can agree that a good night's sleep is essential, but that does not mean we always get it. External distractions, an uncomfortable mattress and even your pajamas can affect how you sleep. While a cup of joe might sound like the only answer after tossing and turning all night, there are products and solutions out there to help you rest better.
To help you get some zzz, Liz Vaccariello, editor-in-chief of Real Simple, stopped by TODAY to share a sneak peek of some of the winners from the magazine's Sleep Awards. Some of the categories include Best Nap Accessory, Best Mood Setter and even Best Before-Bed Ritual.
From cozy pajamas to an alarm clock, read on for all of the Sleep Award winners you won't want to miss.
Sleep Awards winners 2022
This year's winner in the Best Tech category is a health tracker. This ring is lighter than most conventional rings, says the brand, and has four to seven days of battery life. Compatible with both Apple Heath and Google Fit, this device can help you gain insight into sleep metrics such as your resting heart rate and baseline body temperature.
If soft sleepwear helps you sleep better, you might want to give Jambys a try. These boxers, which feature pockets, are breathable, unisex and super stretchy. The brand also has T-shirts, cloaks, hoodies and much more.
Upgrade any mattress with this memory foam three-inch topper. This topper is designed to relieve pressure and adapt to your weight, shape and temperature over time for a more restful sleep. A machine-washable cover is also included.
Perfect for naps, this memory foam pillow not only supports your neck while sleeping but can also work as a lumbar pillow or slide under your knees when you lie on your back to reduce lower back pain. The pillow is hypoallergenic and also comes with a removable soft microfiber cover.
The winner for the Best Mood Setter category was this all-in-one alarm clock, night light and white noise machine. You can customize the alarm, alarm tone, volume and display. The clock also features wellness content, including breathwork, sound baths and guided meditation.
These gummies, which won the Best Before-Bed Ritual category, are a great way to relax at night and have a restful sleep. Made with melatonin, Simple Slumbers aim to help you fall asleep faster and help you feel refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
