68% of Irish People Have Become Too Tired to Enjoy Life
Housework and children are still taking its toll on women with work life affecting men
A new survey released today by Centrum has revealed that 70% of people in Ireland feel that they don’t have enough time in their day, with 68% of those surveyed reporting that they are too tired to do what they actually want.
The survey examines the prevailing issues in Ireland relating to poor work / life balance and lack of energy, has thrown up some interesting statistics.
According to the research, the need to juggle a job, family, housework and busy schedules leaves Irish people too tired to find time for themselves and may impact on their health and wellbeing, as they struggle to find time for exercising and the attainment of a balanced diet.
Respondents did demonstrate an understanding of the steps needed to enhance their emotional and physical health but, the survey indicates that they simply lack the energy and time to make the necessary changes.
According to fitness expert, Karl Henry of Operation Transformation fame, a lack of energy and time can create a vicious cycle.
“There are some really practical ways in which we can all claw back that valuable personal time that we’re craving.
Speaking at the launch of the new research, David O’Moore, Head of Consumer Healthcare responsible for Centrum, said: “As the core supplier of Centrum Multivitamins, we are continually looking at lifestyle trends and dietary behaviours, in an effort to understand people’s ever-changing needs and respond to them accordingly. Time-poor, busy lifestyles can mean that we do not always receive sufficient levels of nutrients, in the right quantities, to maintain good health and a multivitamin can be of particular help in this regard.”
Centrum has been shown to positively improve peoples’ work/ life balance by improving absorption of nutrients and energy from food into the body.
