Is Britain the most tired nation in Europe?… Yawn
How did you feel when you woke up this morning? Fresh and rested? Or did you hit the snooze button and pull the duvet up a bit higher?
There’s a good chance that second answer applies to you. When questioned in a recent survey, 1 in 2 people in the UK said that, more often than not, they did not feel fresh and rested when they woke up in the morning.
It needn’t be like this. Elsewhere across Europe – in Germany, Spain, Austria and Italy, for example – it’s only about 1 in 4 people who feel this tired in the morning. In fact, out of the 27 countries in the EU at the time of the survey, the UK ranks worst on this question.
These results come from a new report written by nef and commissioned by an EU agency, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Working and Living Conditions (Eurofound). The report is based on the European Quality of Life Survey for 2011, which is run by Eurofound across the EU.
