We spend a third of our lives in bed. If I had it my way, it would be even more.
Hi, my name is Irina, and I am a sleep lover through and through. Given how I am also a bad sleeper (blame it on living in Manhattan) and less-than-pleasant to deal with when I have less than seven hours of ZZZs, I have tried many sleep-adjacent products and accessories to optimize my shut-eye time. I’ve invested in mattresses that promised me the best night’s sleep of my life, sprayed my pillows with different variations of lavender blends, and chugged sleepy time adaptogens that promised toss-free sleep and better skin.
Through trial and error, this year, I’ve finally achieved the kind of sleep nirvana of which even Morpheus would be jealous. Is my bed extra? Sure, but so am I when I’ve had a restful eight (nine? 10?) hours of sleep.
What kind of person would I be if I didn’t share all the wisdom I’ve learned? A bad one. And so, ahead, the 10 things you need to make a haven out of your bed.
