11 Items That'll Put You to Sleep Faster Than Counting Sheep
What is the number one thing you're constantly craving but never getting enough of?
The answer is simple—it's sleep. Adults everywhere are fueling themselves on sugar and caffeine to get through the day because of sleepless nights and working too late. Perhaps that's why there has been a holiday created specifically to celebrate the importance of getting enough zzz's at night. Much to Bachelor Corinne's pleasure, tomorrow (March 17) is known as World Sleep Day.
While we all wish we were getting more sleep every night, it may not always be because we are going to sleep too late. Stress and anxiety can lead to insomnia and sleepless nights, which can become a cycle of grogginess and all-over unhappiness. However, there are products that can assist you in falling asleep faster, and staying asleep throughout the whole night.

Himalayan Salt Lamp
Himalayan salt has a TON of amazing benefits, but the one that we are mostly excited about is it's ability to give you a better atmosphere for sleep. These salt lamps cleanse the air and are natural negative ion generators, creating more regular sleep patterns. Not to mention, the dreamy pink light it gives off is almost enough to make us say goodbye to counting sheep.
French Lavender Candle
Lavender is famous for being a relaxing, spa-like scent that will not only put your mind at ease, but will also make you sleepier. This eco-friendly candle fills a space with the rejuvenating fragrance of lavender from Provence. Just remember to blow it out before you hit the sheets!
