The secret to a great night's sleep

Britain is a Snooze Nation

Daily Exoress


The clocks went back this weekend so some of us were lucky enough to spend an extra hour in one of our favourite places: bed! 

Today we've announced the results of our survey, which found that we are becoming a nation of serial snoozers, sacrificing two and half days of quality sleep a year to catch a few extra minutes in bed.

Britain is a Snooze Nation


Our survey of 2,000 people revealed that 79% of Brits press the snooze button at least once per day, equating to two and a half days of quality sleep lost over the course of a year. We also found that nearly half of the nation lie in for 30 minutes on a weekday.

Surprisingly, the worst snooze offenders are the over 50s, with 88% admitting to snoozing at least once every day. However it is the 16-24 year olds who fail to get up, instead repeatedly hitting the snooze button.
