Scientists have found the most stressful time of the day down to the minute trends now
Commuting to work and getting children to school is the most stressful time of day, according to a new poll.
The answers of 2,000 adults in the UK were averaged out and results suggested that 7.23am was the most stressful time of their day.
They were also asked to rank the top 50 most stressful events in a typical day. Being stuck in traffic, spilling something on the carpet, and waking up late were among the top five.
The poll found that adults face about three stressful events every day. They occur about an hour earlier in women than men.
It comes after a study warned last month that being stressed, nervous, or exhausted in middle age may increase the risk of dementia.

The latest research was commissioned by UK-based company Rescue Remedy, which sells tablets, creams, and liquids that claim to help ease stress.
Zuzana Bustikova, head of global brands at Rescue Remedy-owner Nelsons, said: 'Often when we think "drama" we think big, but the research shows how much of an impact seemingly small niggles can have on our daily moods.
'We know that a poor night’s sleep can offset the whole day, and challenging days can often result in sleepless nights.
'So, it’s no wonder that mornings are when the first drama is experienced.'
The survey found that the top causes of daily stresses included tiredness - 46 percent of participants said this was the case - an interrupted night's sleep (36 percent) and a busy day at work (33 percent).
The stressful events people faced were most likely to leave them frustrated (32 percent), anxious (23 percent), or tired (21 percent).
Adults also said they typically have five things on their mind at one time, while 16 percent said they likely faced more stressful events during the day than others.
About 33 percent of Americans say they are stressed every day, according to estimates, while in the UK one in 14 adults feels stressed daily.
