According to a study, Britons only feel good 47 percent of the time on average.
A survey of 2,000 people about how well they feel every day found that a quarter of adults experience anxiety at least once a week and 40 percent experience some form of soreness most days.
Nearly six in ten (57 percent) say it’s rare that they ever feel physically at their peak, while 61 percent say pain is just a part of everyday life.
An unbalanced diet, too little exercise and too few hours a day are among the main reasons why people don’t always feel their best.
A spokesman for natural vitamins and supplements maker MyVybe, which conducted the study, said: “It’s hard to always be 100 percent and there will be things that will bring us down.
“Particularly as we get older, pain, tension and a cold seem to be easier to detect than when we were young.
“However, this is also a case of looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses, as many young people also report similar problems.
“There are so many different ways we need to take care of ourselves — both mentally and physically — that just keeping on top of things can be a full-time job.”
Brits also estimate that they feel 100 per cent in just 10 hours and 12 minutes of an average 24-hour period – including when they’re asleep.
Adults tend to feel best in the morning, with evening being the time when they are most likely to struggle after the long day is over.
In general, only 63 percent of adults consider themselves to be healthy – while 23 percent are currently on targeted diets to lose weight.
To increase their well-being, 41 percent have tried going to bed earlier and the same number have tried drinking more water.
Another four in 10 have increased their exercise level, while more than one in four (27 percent) have turned to supplements or vitamins.
Another tenth have done their best to fortify themselves by booking a spa day, according to OnePoll figures.
However, 42 percent think that implementing these measures more regularly in their lives is too expensive, while 40 percent think it takes too much time.
Almost seven in ten (68 percent) have reached the point where they just accept the days when they don’t feel 100 percent good and wait for the next one.
MyVybe’s spokesperson added: “No matter how often you feel physically down, there’s almost always something you can do to make things better.
“Small changes like drinking more water can give you more energy, and getting more sleep can also make a big difference.
“If after years of desk work you find that your back or shoulders aren’t in the best shape, there are exercises you can try, or you could try a standing desk.
“Diet also plays a big part – and if you’re having a hard time eating right all the time, then vitamins and supplements can help fill in some vitamin gaps in your diet.”
