We now only sleep for six hours and 41 minutes each night and half of us have no chance of a weekend lie-in, a new study reveals.
A busy 48 per cent of us can’t afford to waste precious time cramming in a well-deserved snooze when we’re not working at the weekend. And it seems even during the week we are struggling to get enough shut eye.
Worryingly, two-thirds (65 per cent) of us are only sleeping for six hours and 27 minutes, the study of 2,000 UK adults found. The figure is one hour and 33 minutes short of the recommended daily amount of sleep – eight hours.
The new research, carried out by Travelodge, highlights that more than a quarter (27 per cent) are getting less sleep than they did a year ago.
