Countdown of Life: How much time do you really have left?

Countdown of Life
How much time do you really have left?
First you’re born. You’ve got about 78 tears left, statistically speaking.
You’re sleeping about ½ of that time. That leaves you with 49 waking years.
Time to get educated. You spend 31,000 hours studying or in class. Added up, that’s 3 ½ years!
You’ve graduated, congratulations! Time to put in your 91,000 hours at work. That’s 10 ½ years.
All that time you spend in traffic? Say goodbye to one whole year of your life.
Brushing your teeth, sitting on the toilet, showering, getting ready: that’s 2 ½ years.
Eating and drinking take 4 years. You’ve got 28 years left
Shopping, grocery runs, it adds up to about 2 ½ years.
Cooking, cleaning, yardwork 6 years spent doing chores.
You spend 1 ½ years caring for kids and loved ones. 18 precious years left.
Of which you spend half watching TV. Or playing video games. Or on Facebook. Or Reddit. Pick your poison, you spend 9 years doing it. And you’ve got 9 years left.
Out of 78 years on this earth, 9 are your
9 years to spend with your family and friends. To play, laugh, and cry. To fall in love, to see the world, to pursue your passions.
So why are you still in front of the computer? What would you rather be doing? Go do that instead!
It’s not the years in your life that count.
It’s the life in your years.

We know roughly how we spend our days - 8 hours at work, maybe half an hour in traffic, a few hours watching TV in the evening. We thought it'd be interesting to look at it from a different perspect...
