A new survey has it that Britons have got so busy in the daily conundrums of life only fifty percent of adults get time to play games and have fun.

Only half of adults find time to play games simply for fun as pressures of work mount, according to a new study.

And thus, they are becoming increasingly miserable.

Most of those who do have time play computer games or do newspaper crosswords and puzzles rather than interacting with others.

Cadbury commissioned the report on the state of play in the UK as part of its role as a London 2012 sponsor.

"With a growing work ethic, there is the sense we are only doing anything good if it is productive," the Daily Express quoted psychiatrist Dr Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play, as saying.

"So our free time is taken up by goal-oriented activities rather than those done purely for pleasure. The danger is that this grinds us down and leads to a loss of optimism," he added.

"There used to be more family time. Play is crucial for the survival of the species. Without a sense of play people become rigid and predictable and are unable to adapt," said Brown.
