'Worst sleep' of week on Sunday

22nd January 2008

A study of 3,500 people in the UK has found that Sunday is the day of the week when people have "their worst night's sleep".

Almost  60% of workers said they slept most poorly on Sunday. Over 25% said they would call in sick the next day if they had an awful night's sleep.

Dr Neil Stanley of Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital said that Sunday was the worst day because "sleeping patterns have been messed up by having lie ins and late nights" over the weekend.
