CMI: Brits failing to achieve a happy work-life balance. Nearly half of Brits have an uneven work-life balance, new data has shown. A study commissioned by Tilda has revealed that four in ten people are unhappy with the way their life and career progression is going, while many said long working hours, poor diets and sleepless nights are starting to take a toll on their health and wellbeing. Commenting on the results of the survey, Camilla Sheeley, senior Brand & Innovation manager for Tilda, said many workers are putting their health at risk due to dissatisfaction over their jobs. She added: “To feel happy and content we must take a holistic approach to our lifestyle choices, this includes giving consideration to what we eat, how much we sleep and how we use our leisure time.
“Long working hours and the desire to fill every spare minute has resulted in the majority of us spending on average less than 20 minutes preparing our weekday meals. Nearly three-quarters of women and over a third of men are aware that their diet has a direct impact on their outlook on life.” The poll of 2,000 people also showed the 57 per cent of people have seen their personal life affected because of putting in too many hours at work.
