*Sleeping, eight hours and 48 minutes.


*Working, three hours and 36 minutes.  That’s because weekends and unemployed people pull the average way down.


*Watching TV, two hours and 49 minutes.


*Doing stuff around the house, one hour and 46 minutes.


*Leisure activities like surfing the internet, one hour and 29 minutes.


*Eating and drinking, one hour and 10 minutes.


*Personal care, including showering, 47 minutes.


*Shopping, 44 minutes.


*Taking care of and helping other people, 43 minutes.


*Socializing and communicating, 43 minutes.


*Activities like going to church, 33 minutes.


*Education, 25 minutes.


*Exercise and sports, 17 minutes.


*Communicating over the phone, text, and email, eight minutes. 



(That comes out to about 24 hours and nine minutes, because of rounding.)
