Are you a light sleeper? Does the faintest noise or sliver of light prevent you from getting the deep sleep you need? Whether you suffer from occasional insomnia or have consistently loud neighbors that wake you up through the night, here are five helpful ways to get better sleep.

1. Alaska Bear natural silk sleep mask & blindfold

The Alaska Bear natural silk sleep mask and blindfold is made of 100 percent top-quality natural mulberry silk on both sides. And, it doesn’t just black out light, it also helps to relax your eyes. This is the same type of soothing mask you’d find at the world’s premier spas. Its hypoallergenic, breathable, cooling design can help alleviate insomnia, migraines and dry-eye.
