Chinese shoppers sleep on a bed in the showroom of the IKEA store on July 6, 2014 in Beijing, China. Of the world's ten biggest Ikea stores, 8 of them are in China to cater to the country's growing middle class. The stores are designed with extra room displays given the tendency for customers to make a visit an all-day affair. Store management does not discourage shoppers from sleeping on Ikea furniture, even marking them with signs inviting customers to try them out.

Most Americans struggle with sleep, and may use medications to make it happen. In my house, my fiance has been struggling with this for the past few weeks. He ultimately has to go sleep in the guest bedroom.

The good news is, there are other ways to help you get a good night’s sleep. Some may surprise you, but give them a try! Here is what I read in the New York Post.

  • If you have anxiety, write it down
  • Remove the color from your phone
  • Embrace wiggle room for weekend wake ups
  • Don’t go to sleep on an empty stomach
