People with medical conditions such as obesity and depression are more likely to suffer from poor sleep, according to The Sleep Council's Great British Bedtime Report*.
Of all the 5,000 people surveyed, 29% said they slept poorly most nights. But that figure shoots up to 45% for people who are obese and 53% for people with depression.
The conditions also have an impact on how much sleep an individual gets. On average, 41% of people survive on less than six hours a night, but for depression that jumps to 56%, and obesity 51%.
