Worried Britain: Stressed-out adults spend 36 minutes a day in despair
英国成人压力大 每天发愁36分钟

                                                    Stressed out: The typical adult spends a year and a half of their life worrying.

Stressed Britons spend 36 minutes every day wallowing in despair, a study has revealed. The typical adult spends a year and a half of their life worrying, with the high cost of living, feeling out of shape and mounting debt the most common causes for concern. Researchers discovered getting old, job security and a dire sex life also leave a dark cloud looming over millions of us.

一项研究发现,压力重重的英国人每天有36分钟在焦虑中度过。英国成人通常一生中有一年半的时间在烦恼,烦恼的原因大多是生活成本高、觉得身体状况不佳或是债台高筑。研究人员发现,变老、工作不稳定、性生活很糟也会让数百万英国人心头阴云密布。

The study also found extreme anxiety has meant many people are distracted at work, enduring sleepless nights and even suffering rifts with their partners. One in 10 felt restless for more than two hours a day, while one in two worries so much their health has suffered.

研究还发现,极度焦虑意味着许多人在工作时不能集中注意力或经常失眠,甚至和伴侣的关系会产生裂痕。十分之一的英国人每天感觉烦躁的时间超过两个小时,而有半数的英国人因为过度烦恼而影响了身体健康。

'A large chunk of the nation feels considerably worried and people are wasting far too much time stressing about things, ' said a spokesman from the Everyman Campaign, which carried out the study. 'Money is dominating most of people’s thoughts - whether it’s mounting debt, how they’re going to pay their next set of bills or the fact they’ll never become financially secure. 'It's interesting to see how gaining weight is more of a concern than job security, and that petrol prices take priority over people’s sex lives. 'Work apprehensions also feature heavily in the top 50 list - feeling stressed and faced with unmanageable workloads and awkward bosses.'

开展这一研究的“凡人”运动的发言人说:“很大一部分国人都相当焦虑,人们浪费在烦恼上的时间太多了。” “金钱问题是给人们造成最多困扰的问题,不管是堆积如山的债务,还是如何偿付下一次账单,或是永远无法在经济上获得保障。” “有趣的是,和工作不稳定相比,人们更担心体重增加,油价则比性生活更重要。” “和工作有关的烦恼在压力来源前50名中占了很大比重:工作压力大、不堪承受的工作负担和难以应付的上司。”

The study of 2,000 British adults aged between 18 and 65 was carried out to mark the launch of Everyman’s Male Cancer Awareness Month. It found the average adult spends nine whole days a year worrying - which totals one year and six months during their life. Four in 10 are stressed about debt, a quarter are concerned that they are 'not living life to the full' and one in five is troubled about family members falling ill. The survey found three in 10 have become depressed due to their worrying, one in 10 admits it has affected their relationship with their kids and one in 20 has lost friends.

这项研究涵盖了2000名年龄在18岁和65岁之间的英国成人。开展该研究是为了纪念“凡人”发起男性癌症宣传月活动。研究发现,一名英国成人平均每年有整整九天时间在烦恼中度过,一生中的“烦恼时光”共是一年零六个月。十分之四的英国人为债务忧心,四分之一的人担心自己没能“拥有充实的人生”,五分之一的人因为家人生病而发愁。调查发现,十分之三的人因为过度烦恼而感到抑郁,十分之一的人承认自己的抑郁情绪已经影响到和孩子的感情,还有二十分之一的人为此而失去了朋友。
