Take away your desk job, traffic congestion, lines at the grocery store, crying kids, homework, bills, cleaning the house, and sleepless nights. What are you left with?
An ideal day.
According to an article published by the Huffington Post, the Journal of Economic Psychology discovered that an average woman’s “perfect” day involves a whole lot more fun than it does work. No shocker, but check out other findings that might raise your eyebrows.
The Average Woman’s Ultimate Day Includes:
106 minutes of sex, 82 minutes of socializing, 78 minutes of relaxation, 75 minutes of eating, 73 minutes of prayer and/or meditation, 68 minutes of exercise, 57 minutes of phone time, 56 minutes of shopping, 55 minutes of watching TV, 50 minutes of food preparation, 48 minutes of computer time, 47 minutes of housework, 46 minutes of childcare, 46 minutes of napping, 36 minutes of work, 33 minutes of commuting
Researchers interviewed over 900 women of various ages and ethnicities. An interesting finding according to researchers is the longer that pleasurable activities last, the less enjoyable they become. Bottom line: quality beats quantity.
