PEOPLE in Southampton experience 11 bouts of stress per day, a study has revealed The research was carried out by Ikea as part of its Life at Home report to see what toll modern life takes on city residents.

Work was the main source of angst and general day-to-day activities were the second biggest trigger.

Out of the 2,000 people surveyed, a quarter also said they suffered morning stress caused by overtiredness, feeling overweight and being late.

Another quarter of adults spent more time feeling stressed than relaxed because having all-day access to the Internet on their phone meant they could never escape work.

Meanwhile a separate survey by charity shopping organisation Give as You Live found employees in Southampton spend 15 minutes every day shopping online when they should be working.

What a waste of money! Subjective claptrap.

" they suffered morning stress caused by overtiredness, feeling overweight and being late."

Get to bed at night, eat sensible food and get up an hour earlier. Turn off your phone and computer. Whining, lazy toads.

MENTAL health problems are all about a lack of control in our lives.when you are living your life online,talking to faceless people,and letters come with a must pay or take -out this loan or struggling to catch up from the moment we get up!!! then we have the staple mobile phone,like a part of the body now.1) try to go a week without listening to any news 2) try to switch off your phone for at least 5 hours during the day .3)just sit somewhere quiet for at least half an hour during the day.4) try one week without tea or coffee 5)drink a pint or a glass of wine with your evening meal (if you don't already just one) 6) talk to your best friend at least 3 times a week. switch off the world..its o.k.
