We’ve got a new study here and I’m not SURE this is the point . . . but what I’m getting from it is that you should just go on a four-year vacation right now and then accept that the rest of your life is going to be super boring.
Because according to the study, the average American spends four years and three months of their life escaping from reality. That works out to about 13 hours a week, and here’s how it breaks down . . .
1. Listening to music . . . two hours and 47 minutes a week.
2. Watching movies or TV . . . two hours and 37 minutes.
3. Walking or exercising . . . one hour and 58 minutes.
4. Reading . . . one hour and 35 minutes.
5. Playing video games . . . one hour and 29 minutes.
6. Exploring new places, even if it’s just online . . . 56 minutes.
7. Meditating or doing yoga . . . 51 minutes.
8. Researching or thinking about vacations . . . 44 minutes.
The study also found we’re most likely to daydream about being somewhere else at 1:56 P.M. on Mondays.
