Autumn blues hit the East Midlands and nearly half admit to needing an energy boost in October
The depths of winter might seem far away but new research by E.ON has revealed that the Autumn blues have hit as almost half (46%)(1) of people from the East Midlands admit to having lower energy levels and needing a recharge.
All the statistics add up to this week being the most fatiguing over the year, with almost half (47%) of people from the East Midlands feeling more drained this year compared to last – with 17% saying this is because we’ve not had time to recharge our mind, body or soul. More than a quarter (28%) found October one of the most draining months, with the main reason for this being family stress (47%) or British politics (28%).
Brits are more likely to search online for ‘relaxation’ in October than at any other time of the year, research from Google(2) has revealed, and almost a third (30%) of those in the East Midlands say the wet and windy autumnal weather is one of the main reasons for their seasonal drop in energy levels.
