Age 33 is the ‘busiest time of our lives’

A survey has suggested that 33 is the age when we are the busiest in our lives, with hardly any time to balance our busy work, family and social activities. So much so, a third of 33-year-olds say they get an average of only five hours sleep a night, reports The Daily Mail.



66% people claim that they spend more than 38 hours a week in the office and 60% are forced to double bookwork and social appointments to try to squeeze everything in. 56% per cent regularly need to take work home to complete it, according to the study conducted by Hotmail. 90% of 33-year-old women in the survey said they thought they were busier than men of the same age.

“We also must organise ourselves during particularly busy periods in our lives to ensure we can enjoy life and get the balance right. Too much work and no play should not be an option,” said TV presenter and actress Lisa Rogers.
