Millions Of Brits 'Too Tired' To Have Sex, Study Shows

Millions of Brits are 'too tired' to have sex, clean their home or cook meals, a study has revealed.

Research by Vitabiotics Feroglobin on 2,000 adults found they typically complain of tiredness four times a day, spending a total of three hours feeling low energy.

Brits have avoided exercising (35 per cent), doing the washing up (33 per cent) and simply putting their clothes away in the wardrobe (33 per cent).

More than one in five (23 per cent) have even used it as a reason not to have a shower while 29 per cent have been too tired to have sex.

Others admitted to being too exhausted to answer their phone (21 per cent), go to the pub (20 per cent) and remove their make-up (16 per cent).

The research also discovered Brits are most energetic at 11.10am and are at their most tired just after 3pm.

A spokesperson for Vitabiotics Feroglobin, said: "Tiredness affects us all at one time or another but it's interesting to see some of the small things it means we struggle to do.

"We've all dumped our clothes on the floor when we've got into bed rather than putting them away - at the end of a long day, being tidy is often at the bottom of our list of worries.

"With the country firmly in the grip of winter, the dark days and cold and wet weather can make you feel even more tired and less enthusiastic about doing something.

"But it's also worth remembering things like your diet and a good intake of nutrients like iron and vitamin B12 in particular can help to combat tiredness and fatigue."

It also emerged 64 per cent feel they get more tired with age, and of those who have been working from home 2020, 55 per cent feel it has made them more exhausted than when they were commuting and in their usual place of work.

The study carried out via OnePoll found 41 per cent blame their tiredness on being unable to get to sleep at night, while 31 per cent put it down to stress.
