【研究显示,68%的人感到自己需要更多休息】

【研究显示,68%的人感到自己需要更多休息】研究人员在全球134个国家地区对1.8万人进行的调查显示,68%的人在任何时候都感到自己需要更多休息,平均来说,年轻人和收入高的人休息的时间比较短。有趣的是,最让人感到轻松和休息的活动是在完成工作之后的活动,因此休息的时间长短或许不如调整工作节奏更重要。

Are YOU exhausted? Probably. Two-thirds of us feel we need more rest, global study shows

Two-thirds of people feel they need more rest in their lives, according to a worldwide study.
The Rest Test, led by researchers from Durham University, involved more than 18,000 people from 134 different countries to investigate their resting habits and attitudes towards relaxation.
It found 68 per cent of people wanted more rest while those who said they did not feel in need of more had well-being scores twice as high as those who did.

Dr Felicity Callard, principal investigator and social scientist at Durham University, said: 'The survey shows that people's ability to take rest, and their levels of well-being, are related.
'We're delighted that these findings combat a common, moralizing connection between rest and laziness.'
The survey asked people a number of questions to glean, among other things:
How does rest affect health and wellbeing?
How do people vary in what they experience as restful?
Does an individual’s personality, health history and caring responsibilities have an effect on how much rest they get or the kinds of activities they find restful?
How do attitudes to and experiences of rest vary between different countries in the world?
They were also asked to choose the activities they found the most restful.

 

Reading came top, followed by being in the natural environment, being on their own, listening to music and doing nothing in particular.
It also asked respondents to state how many hours rest they had within the last 24 hours.
The results showed that, on average, being younger and having a higher household income was associated with having fewer hours of rest.
Those with caring responsibilities or in shift work which included nights also reported fewer hours of rest.
The average time spent resting by UK respondents the previous day was three hours and eight minutes.
Dr Callard said: 'It's intriguing that the top activities considered restful are frequently done on one's own.
'Perhaps it's not only the total hours resting or working that we need to consider, but the rhythms of our work, rest and time with and without others.'
The Rest Test is part of a wider collaboration between BBC Radio 4 and Hubbub, a collective of social scientists, artists, humanities researchers, broadcasters and mental health experts.
