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.
