A new survey on bedtime habits has suggested that one in 10 adults still takes a teddy bears to bed while at least one in 20 leaves the light on.

Three-quarters of us always sleep on the same side of the bed, with two thirds saying they cannot sleep if they are forced to change sides.

When it comes to bedtime routine, one in 10 people said they always checked their emails, with a similar proportion having to look at social media sites.

Reading, meditation and herbal sleeping pills are just some of the habits helping these people.
