Short of sleep? It’s a worry...
BRITONS lose one night’s sleep each month to worry, a survey has found.
On average, they toss and turn on seven nights a month – adding up to eight hours, or a full night’s sleep.
Across the population, that is five billion hours’ sleep lost each year.
In the YouGov poll of more than 4,000 adults, for insurance group Swinton, six in ten people said the problem had a negative impact on their wellbeing.
People with household incomes below £20,000 a year lost sleep more than nine nights a month on average – about three nights more than those earning at least £50,000.
