Tried and tested by me. I just get frustrated because there are so many. How am I supposed to know if I've counted the same one twice?! - Britgirl

5 Counting down from 1000 by sevens, in time with a clock
6 Trying to fall asleep

After a fruitless half hour, I always go back to one of the other activities mentioned. - PetSounds

7 Eating

Sometimes helps, sometimes hinders. - PetSounds

8 Surfing the internet

Hm... I wonder what blue waffle is - SuperHyperdude

Insomnia is why I am the only person I know who can do it without paper. - PetSounds
