Happy Sleep Awareness Week.

There’s plenty to keep us all up at night. If lately your thoughts have been turning whenever it’s time to go to bed, it may be time to upgrade your sleep situation.

To help TODAY viewers ace their zzz’s, Yahoo Life Contributing Editor Chassie Post stopped by the show to share her favorite products for falling and staying asleep all night. Whether your problem is calming down in the PM or waking up due to a noisy street, Post has a product to help.

Scroll through to discover seven game-changing products that you’ll be so grateful for in the morning.

Jumby Beauty Tuck Me In Bedtime Balm

Clear your mind before bed with this calming balm, infused with juniper berry and cedarwood ylang ylang essential oils. Rub it on your temples and at the back of your neck to help clear away any thoughts that have been building up throughout the day. Post recommends it for both “jet-lagged travelers and sleepless individuals alike” — and she isn’t the only one. Kourtney Kardashian included the balm in Valentine’s Day gift baskets for her friends and family, including for mom Kris and sister Khloe.

Asutra Natural Sleep Therapy Dead Sea Bath Salts

There’s nothing like a long bath before bed if you’ve had a stressful day. These bath salts from Asutra help you draw a mineral-rich bath with lavender, rosemary and ylang ylang essential oils — all known to help reduce stress and anxiety. Plus, it's athlete-approved: Venus Williams part owner and Chief Brand Officer. So if it’s good enough to help her unwind after a day on the tennis courts, it’s good enough for us.

Pancake Pillow

If you’re tossing and turning at night because of neck pain due to an uncomfortable pillow, try the Pancake Pillow. The pillow is made with six adjustable layers, so you can adjust your pillow height to your liking, whether you sleep on your side, stomach or back. And you can always change your pillow height if your sleep preferences happen to change.

Sharper Images Total Sleep Mask System

Fall asleep no matter where you are — noisy city, friend’s house or loud hotel. This “total” system covers your eyes and ears with a wraparound eye guard (and one that you can even wear with eyelash extensions). The mask also comes with memory foam ear packs to help block out outside sound, including your partner’s snoring.

Thermalogic Multifunctional Liner

Maybe your solution to better sleep is as simple as better curtains. These liners will help you transform any curtains into blackout curtains. In addition to blocking out 100% of light, these will also help create a barrier to block out external noise and prevent heat or cooling loss through the window in winter and summer. They’re universal so they’ll go with whatever’s already hanging in your room — and they’re machine washable.

Slumbercloud Core Cooling Pillow Covers

These handy covers will turn any pillow into a cooling pillow — no need to flip sides. These covers will slip over your current pillows and beneath your favorite pillowcase. It was made using technology developed for NASA and will automatically regulate your temperature all night long.

Slumber Cloud is celebrating Sleep Week with a 10% off sale sitewide, but the brand is offering TODAY viewers an additional 10% off discount through March 21 using the promo code TODAY10.
