Forget about a clear conscious or sleeping pills -- according to a new survey, the best way to get a good night rest is a teddy bear.

Travelodge polled 6,000 British adults and found that a surprising 35 percent still sleep with a teddy bear because they find the stuffed toy relaxing and comforting.

In fact, 25 percent of British men admitted to taking their teddy bear with them on business trips, and 15 percent classify their teddy as a "best friend."

"Teddy Bears represent happiness and security in childhood," explained Dawn James of the Teddy Bear Times. "They are the best friend that always listens and never criticizes. This is why so many adults hang on to their childhood bears, because they see them as a lifelong friend."
