Britons struggle to find time for a cup of tea, study claims

A study of 2,000 adults found a fast pace of life combined with rising work pressures and a phone that never stops means few people “switch off”.

Other factors include the stress of being a parent, longer commuting times and financial pressures amid rising costs of living.

Two thirds of those polled believe a lifestyle that leaves no time to decompress is taking its toll on health and emotional wellbeing.

Four in 10 admit their difficulty in unwinding has had a negative impact on their home life. More than half are so busy they have no time to take a tea break.

However, six in 10 feel said they feel apprehensive about straying from their daily routine.

Despite this, the Twinings research carried out through OnePoll, found many of those polled have made changes to their daily routine to help them better relax.
