*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.

*Activities like going to church, 33 minutes.

 

*Education, 25 minutes.

 

*Exercise and sports, 17 minutes.

 

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