If you are unable to get a sound sleep at night, blame it on your work related worries.



According to a survey, nearly three-quarters of Britons are struggling to get a good night's sleep because of work worries, reports

Around 69 per cent people said that work problems make it difficult for them to sleep.



Sleep

The main reason for restless nights was a heavy workload, with half blaming the recession and gloomy predictions for the next 12 months.



The survey also showed 39 per cent wake up at least once a night fretting about their careers.

One in three dreams about work at least twice a week, with Sundays the most common occasion.

The online survey of 3,000 adults was conducted by Slumberland, a lifestyle store and Chris Tattersall, of Slumberland, said: "It's understandable that people dream about work as it's a key part of our lives, but it's important not to let stress levels affect sleep."

"Getting enough rest is linked to performance. It is ironic that stress from jobs seems to be a barrier to the sleep needed to function," he added.
