3.44am is most common time wake up at night

275x250.jpg Sleep-starved Brits are more likely to wake up at 3.44am than at any other time during the night, a study has revealed.
Researchers found the typical Brit is woken twice a night by dripping taps, noisy neighbours, snoring, kicking partners and pawing pets.
The study also showed four in ten struggle to fall asleep, with the average Brit taking 46 minutes to nod off.
Worries about money and work were the most common culprits, whilst one sixth blamed eating late and too much caffeine.
Nearly half said they felt tired all day long as a result of their interrupted sleep and one in five admitted finding themselves nodding off during the day… maybe they were reading newslite!
Dr Jen Tan, medical director of A.Vogel which commissioned the study, said: "It's staggering how many people struggle to fall asleep and then when they finally do manage to drift off are woken by their surroundings or worries twice during the night.
"The research shows sleep is the first thing to bear the brunt of an overworked or hectic lifestyle and can have a huge impact on our energy levels and how we function the next day.
"Many people rush hectically through their day and then collapse into bed without a period of calm to allow their adrenal glands to switch off. Without sleep the body struggles to repair and everyday tasks become harder."
