“Sleeping well is important!” says bed retailer
Almost half of Britons are too busy to enjoy a lie-in while only a quarter ‘regularly’ sleep through the night, according to survey
The lives of one out of two Britons are so hectic they never have time for a lie-in, according to a survey.
More men than women – 49 per cent compared with 41 per cent – complained they don’t have lazy mornings.
With the prospect of an extra hour in bed when the clocks go back this weekend, the poll found that only a quarter ‘regularly’ or ‘always’ sleep through the night.

Sleeping is one of the most vital functions of the human body, albeit one this Bad PR blogger far too often neglects. Still, it’s positive that someone’s watching our backs and ensuring we take snoozing seriously, isn’t it? Well, it depends on who that someone is…
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, Silentnight’s sleep expert and a sleep therapist at Capio Nightingale Hospital, said: ‘Many people are simply too busy these days to enjoy a lie in, so it’s hardly surprising that almost half of us never get to treat ourselves.
It isn’t hard to see why Silentnight – the bed retailer – might want us to place more value in the level of sleep we get. Nor is this a one-off, with near-identical pseudo-research appearing in the Express back in August:
Sweet dreams? Only 13% of us get good night’s sleep
ONE in five people has thrown a “sickie” from work because he or she has had a bad night’s sleep.
