Two-thirds of all people want more rest

According to a survey done by Durham University researchers, 68% of the public would like to get more rest.

--32% thought they needed more rest than the average person

--10% thought they needed less

The online survey encompassed 18,000 people from 134 countries.

Those who thought they needed more rest scored lower in well-being. Those who didn't feel that scored higher.

They also asked which activities people found most restful.

--Reading--58%

--Being out in nature--53%

--Being on their own--52%

--Listening to music--40%

--Doing nothing in particular--40%

Younger people with higher income reported testing less in the past 24 hrs.

Since the most restful activities seemed to be done on one's own, the researchers suggested maybe this should be taken into consideration in the workplace.

Zzzzz.....what? I am here...
