You're Probably Sleeping More Than You Think
A new survey finds that Americans are getting more than 8 hours of sleep a night
The report found that sleep varied slightly on weeknights and weekends, but generally found that we are pretty much rolling in sleep. We are knee deep in sleep, averaging 8.49 hours on weekdays and 9.34 hours on weekends and holidays. Of course, this doesn't necessarily account for how much of this sleep is actually restful, but it is heartening that so much of our time is spent lying down.

As for the rest of our days? Well, not surprisingly, the bulk of our time is spent at work, with an average of 8 hours a day taken up with work-related activities. According to the survey, most Americans spend around an hour and a half eating and drinking each day, and spend about three and a half hours watching television. As for exercise? Well, we claim to spend around 1.6 hours a day on sporting and recreation activities, but that sounds a bit high to us, no?
