How much time do we have?
What are you doing with all of your time?
How much time is left?
These are tough questions to answer, but the video below puts them in perspective using 28,835 jellybeans of all things! Why the number 28,835? Because this is the average number of days we have to live our lives. Some have more days, and some have less… But on average, this is what we get. In the video below by Zefrank1 on YouTube, each day is represented by a single jellybean.
What if I told you that it would take 5,474 days to turn 15 years old (ya I know that’s easy math). At 15 years old we’re on the precipice of adulthood, and we have our whole life in front of us. Now for some interesting statistics from the American Time Use Survey (creatively illustrated by Zefrank1). After turning 15, you’ll spend 8,477 days sleeping, 1,635 days eating, drinking and preparing food, and 3,202 days at work (ugh). Additionally (with special thanks to Lakers fans) you can plan on wasting 1,099 days in the car commuting to wherever it is you’re going.
Just how much time to we have left? What else are we spending our time on? How bout watching TV, doing chores, caring for friends and family, bathroom activities, and community services. After all that… What’s left over? And more importantly, what does it all mean? Watch the video to find out.
