Interesting newspaper statistic today:

I note the “typically lose 11 nights worth a sleep a year”. I lose at least 2 a week, there are 52 weeks in a year meaning I lose 104 nights sleep a year! I am WAY above average.
But, on a serious note, no matter what you do debt is on your mind. Even if you have a couple of good days, typically your money worries and financial concerns will either keep you awake or give you a nightmare. It has happened to me many times. I often wonder how many people lay there during the early hours just worrying about what is going to happen?
Debt is a serious problem, it doesn’t matter how or why you got in the position either, it changes your whole persona. I don’t think I go more than a few hours without thinking about my own situation. From my perspective, I think it makes it even worse when you have a family to support as well.
Nobody wants to fail, but you worry you will. When you worry, you don’t sleep. It’s that seemingly never ending circle.
