Visualising the sands of time

Time is precious. So what are we doing with it? According to this infographic entered into the Mix & Mash competition, Kiwis are spending:

- 66 percent less time a day thinking

- 10 minutes more a night sleeping

- 57 percent more time consuming media

(Numbers compare 2010 to 1998.)

Also see Keith Ng's Super-Modern Thompsontron – unsurprisingly, women spend more time on housework, shopping, "social entertainment" and childcare a day than men do.
