A study carried out by the Tune Hotels Group shows Britons suffer from Sunday night insomnia, which means the public has a sleep deficit due to anxieties about the start of a new work week, as reported by the Daily Mail.

A quarter of us suffer from ‘Sunday night insomnia’ – and it’s all down to our fears of starting a new working week.

Even commuting causes fretful nights, with 10 per cent of Britons too worried about their journey to work on Mondays to enjoy a proper night’s rest, a study has found.

On average, Britons manage just six and a half hours’ sleep a night, which is far less than the recommended eight hours. More than half only get four hours sleep or less.
