The survey also looked at work and social life, finding that young adults spend less time socialising and more hours working overtime than over 55s, with 18- to 34-year-olds being twice as likely to cancel a social occasion because of work commitments compared to baby boomers.
The findings follow others that point to young people feeling increasingly unhappy.
The study, reported by The Guardian, found that one in four felt “hopeless”, while three out of five young people polled regularly feel stressed due to concerns over money and employment.
Another poll conducted last month found that nine in ten young people say their lives have no meaning or purpose, with 84 per cent saying they are failing to “live their best life”.
While in August, a study by the Children’s Society found that childhood happiness had fallen to its lowest level in a decade, while a report published in September revealed almost one-in-five bullied children had contemplated suicide.
