It’s two hours past your bedtime and you’re wide awake. You’ve tried (and failed) to count sheep, read a bedtime story, and even googled tips for falling asleep. We’ve all been there.

Try these 7 things to help you get to dreamland:

Count all of the emails in your inbox. 

As many times as you need! But don’t answer any. You finished? Why stop there? You’re not asleep yet.

Stare off into space. 

Your wall, the floor, or the entire universe.

Read your mattress warranty. 

We aren’t going to pretend like this isn’t snooze inducing. Shh, don’t let our legal team know…

Solve a trigonometry problem.

Or chemistry. Or physics. Or economics. We don’t think it will take more than one though.

Fill in your tax return.

No, really. You did this right? Once you’re done submitting, you can listen to someone talk you through the history of taxes.

Learn the rules of Cricket.

Cricket is the world’s second most popular sport, but do you really know the rules? Nor do we.

Grab a midnight snack.

Never go to bed on an empty stomach. Think… an entire pizza for yourself. But make sure to set an alarm in case you doze off while waiting for delivery. (Amateur mistake.)
