What are you worrying about? According to recent research, apparently quite a lot:
Worrying costs us a month’s sleep a year
THE stresses of modern life mean we waste a month every year tossing and turning in bed trying to sleep, a study reveals.

Stressing about work (34 per cent) and money (33 per cent) are the two main concerns that keep us awake.
