40% of UK Adults Feel Stressed Most Days

Published: 01 Jan 2019

40% of UK Adults Feel Stressed Most Days 

In our latest Wellbeing Report, we’re looking at the physical and mental health of people in the UK and how it’s affecting our lives.

Increasingly, medical professionals are seeing people struggling to cope with mental health issues like stress, depression and anxiety, and physical issues like obesity and its associated health problems.

Are we looking after ourselves well enough?

Our research looks at four main categories to get the facts behind the headlines:

  • Stress and mental health
  • Sleep
  • Attitudes to body image, eating and exercise
  • Mental health and young people

In each area, we’re seeing concerning statistics, including:

  • four out of 10 UK adults feel stressed most days
  • almost a third of UK adults suffer from insomnia
  • 27% of adults don’t take preventive measure to look after their physical health and wellbeing

You can get the full picture in our report, where our medical director also gives practical tips on how to improve physical and mental wellbeing.
