The research was conducted in conjunction with physiologists from Goldsmiths University, who released the data to Dailymail.com.

They asked people in their 20’s what they thought their biggest first world problems were and decided to compare them to what people in their 50’s thought their issues were 20 years ago.

Interestingly, back in 1997, the biggest problem faced by those who took part in the study was that they were in a loving and happy relationship.

They also fretted over having enough money to go on holiday and whether their photo films would come back overexposed.
