Americans spent less time thinking, relaxing and communicating with others in 2012 than they did a decade ago, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey. They are also spending more time working, eating out, watching TV and movies, and using their computers for fun.
ricans are also spending less time on chores like cleaning, gardening, laundry and shopping and less time on charitable activities like helping people who aren't members of their immediate family.
The bigger picture shows that people are spending more time on the things that they were already spending a lot of time on -- things like working and watching TV -- and even less time on things they weren’t doing much before -- things like hosting parties and helping people that aren’t members of their immediate family.
