What's Your Can't Live Without Item for a Good Night's Sleep?

Reader Survey

Over the years living with roommates has exposed me to some very particular and very peculiar sleeping requirements: the breeze of a fan, a childhood binky or pillow, the TV always on, and no one else in the bed, even when they're in a relationship. I can sleep through it all — standing up, on the floor, in a car, music blasting, husband snoring — as long as I have a great pillow. We're curious: is there anything you can't sleep without?Maybe it's your phone, a sound machine, a good mattress, a top sheet, a sleep mask, music, or complete darkness? Is there anything you always need, or recommend, for a good night's sleep? Let us know in the comments!
