Short of sleep? It’s a worry...

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Focus -

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.
