WHATEVER your personal politics are, you can’t deny that the Brexit vote has had a profound effect on the country.
The decision for Britain to leave the European Union shocked many, saw the pound plummet and sparked a series of resignations from various MPs, beginning with David Cameron.
So if you have been kept awake fretting over the result, you’re far from in the minority, as two-thirds of Britons confess they have lost sleep, and four in five felt that the whole process of the campaign left them feeling anxious.
Reasons for losing sleep ranged from worrying about the outcome, to wondering how the country is going to fare now.
Of just under 3,000 people who were questioned by hillarys.co.uk almost a fifth had even been reduced to tears.
Arguments were common, too, with such an important referendum causing a divide between family and friends whose opinions on the matter differed.
“Voting is a big responsibility, so it’s good the public recognised this and put thought into it,” said Helen Turnbull, spokesperson for www.hillarys.co.uk
“Having said that, the fact that people are so worried and anxious that they are losing sleep, falling out with their friends and family and feeling generally stressed and anxious in their everyday lives is not good for anybody.”
