Most British People Can't Sleep

A new study out this week indicates that an large majority of Britons are dealing with sleep issues.  In fact, in the poll of 5,300 people in Great Britain, only 39% of the respondents actually report sleeping well.

The most common sleep problem reported in the study was insomnia, with 37% of those with sleep problems reporting that they have problems getting to sleep or getting back to sleep after waking in the middle of the night.

The survey, carried out for the nonprofit Mental Health Foundation also identified the heavy toll that sleeping badly can have on personal health and wellbeing.

It discovered that insomniacs are four times more likely to have relationship problems than those who get enough rest (55% compared to 13%), and three times more likely to have depressed moods (83% compared to 27%).
