A study of 2,000 adults found a fast pace of life combined with rising work pressures and a phone that never stops means few people “switch off”.

Other factors include the stress of being a parent, longer commuting times and financial pressures along with rising costs of living.

The research found those who do find the time, only do so for an average of 54 minutes a day.

The research also found the difficulties we have switching off mean we’re left feeling “mentally frazzled” twice a week on average.

These include taking longer tea breaks during their working day, not looking at their mobile devices in the evening and reading a book before going to bed.

Other methods include taking more tea breaks, doing exercise and enforcing a ‘no talking about work’ rule when at home.
