Half of Brits unhappy with work life balance

BY Tom Walker

Nearly half of UK adults aged 16 and over are currently unhappy with their work life balance, according to the latest findings from the Office for National Statistics' (ONS) Measuring National Wellbeing programme.

Interestingly, those that use their leisure time to engage in sport and physical activities seem to be happier than those who prefer sedentary leisure pursuits - such as watching TV, playing video games and socializing with friends.

The latest figures from ONS show that in 2010-11, 54.1 per cent of adults aged 16 and over in England had participated in some type of sport or physical activity in the four weeks before they were interviewed for the Measuring National Wellbeing survey. A higher proportion of men (61.8 per cent) participated than women (46.7 per cent).

However, the most commonly reported free time activity by adults in England is still watching TV (87.6 per cent).
