London – Common everyday stressors that plague people include walking behind slow-moving people and overhearing strangers talking on loud speakerphones, according to a new poll. I’m here.
Other things that aggravate daily frustration include cleaning the house but immediately getting it dirty by children, dealing with a broken dishwasher, and using an umbrella when it suddenly rains. For example, what you don’t have. Traffic jams, breakdowns of home appliances, and the inconvenience of getting wet in the rain just by hanging your laundry outside to dry.
A survey of 2,000 adults revealed that they encountered three such stressful moments each day. As a result, 70% always feel the need to take a break, but only 26% feel they have the opportunity to take a break several times a week. This is why 61% would like more opportunities to escape the pressures of everyday life.
Of those lucky enough to get a short break, 35% take a brisk walk, 38% enjoy a hot cup of tea, and 1 in 5 scroll through social media quickly. The research was commissioned by Cadbury’s Time Out in support of the “Time to Call TimeOut” campaign to encourage people to pause when they feel overwhelmed.
“The current state of the world can easily trigger feelings of overwhelm. With so much uncontrollable frustration, it’s imperative that we focus on what’s within our grasp,” said a spokeswoman. said in a statement.
According to the survey, 1 in 5 adults think Tuesday is the hardest day of the week. Other popular choices to combat weekly stressors include listening to music (33%) and enjoying sweet treats (28%).
A OnePoll study found that 59% of people take up to 20 minutes to actually feel better if they can actually take a break. But 6 out of 10 would love to have more of those moments of rest.
