Britain Is A Nation Of Worriers – And Here’s Why…
An alarming 86 per cent of us are worriers, thanks to work stress and smartphones
It’s become almost a cliché in 2015 to complain about being stressed but a new study has found that the majority of us really are burnt out.
A whopping 86 per cent of adults consider themselves to be a worrier, with everyday stresses from work to family weighing massively on our minds. The average adult surveyed spent one hour and 50 minutes a day worrying, according to the study conducted by Rescue Remedy. That adds up to 12 hours and 53 minutes a week – that’s nearly 28 days a year spent worrying.
While 34 per cent of us are happy to share our concerns, one in four keep their worries bottled up leading to even more stress.
Social media and smartphones are being cited as the biggest stress-inducers, with many employees finding it impossible to switch off from work at the end of the day. The Sunday night blues are very real and even though we know we shouldn’t, many of us are guilty of checking our work emails when we should be unwinding after a tough week at work.
“The rate and flow of information due to the changing ways we communicate and smart technologies like phones and watches have resulted in many of us being bombarded with information that can cause us to worry about things that we wouldn’t have even known about in the past,” explains Neil Shah from The Stress Management Society.
