Most people find it difficult to achieve a sensible work-life balance, but the scales look like they're tipping very much in favour of work if the latest lifestyle survey is correct.

According to the annual Priorities of Life Index - a survey by Scottish Widows - 38 say they don't do enough exercise. And the reason, the survey suggests, is we just don't have enough time to fit it all in.

Seven out of ten adults in this country - that's around 35 million people altogether - say they find it an uphill struggle to devote enough time to the things in life they feel should be a priority.

For instance 20 saying they would love to have more time for their friends and family. Many don't have enough 'me' time either, with 13 who say they find it difficult to find time to have fun. Only 2% said spending more time to focus on their career was a priority.

The survey, which involved 2,000 people, suggests that despite the fact that the country is no longer officially in recession, people are still feeling the pressure financially.

Do you find it difficult to find time for the things in life that really matter to you?
