SLEEP LESS NIGHTS: Brits average just five hours and 48 minutes of sleep a night despite aiming to get at least seven

  • Almost half admitted to being left moody and distracted by a lack of sleep while a third said it affects their work most days

Brits average just five hours and 48 minutes of sleep a night, a survey found — despite aiming for at least seven.

Almost half admitted to being left moody and distracted, while a third said it affects their work most days.

Four in ten said they get angrier with their family when they are tired, with one in five losing their temper with their kids.

Experts recommend seven to nine hours, yet half of those quizzed for retailer Bensons for Beds said they got just three or four.

Meanwhile researchers at Anglia Ruskin University highlighted a vicious circle — where people having trouble sleeping make it worse by worrying about it.
