Are You a Member of Sleepless Britain?
A recent study suggested that the UK is amongst the worst sleepers in the world. In a survey of 1,000 people aged over 18, 37% of Brits said they did not get a sufficient amount of sleep. The study which involved 13 countries doesn’t bode well for Brits who don’t get enough sleep, particularly when 29% of families actually prioritise sleep over eating healthily and reducing sugar intake.
In contrast, the most restful nation in the study was India, where just 9% of people sought after more sleep. Furthermore, as the second greatest health ambition of Brits, behind wanting to lose weight, is to achieve more sleep, it begs the question: exactly why do the people of Great Britain get such little sleep?
