Ever feel there are not enough hours in the day? The average woman feels she needs an extra 82 minutes a day to accomplish everything she would like, according to new research.
The survey profiled the average woman’s schedule and found many women feel slightly overwhelmed by their weekly commitments – as many as 55 percent feel they are currently too busy week after week and mornings are by far the busiest part of their day.
If they had extra time in their day, 49 percent would use it to sleep, while others would read (36 percent) or exercise (29 percent).
Twenty-two percent of women would use their extra time to learn a new hobby. Women are so busy that half of respondents have given up a hobby, simply because they didn’t have the time for it.
One in three (31 percent) of the women polled felt they routinely manage less than 30 minutes of “me time” per day. This may be why a quarter of women would be willing to give up caffeine in exchange for extra time at home.
One in 10 (11 percent) are so busy they’d even be willing to give up their significant other in order have a bit of extra time in which to get ready for their day. And more than a third of women (38 percent) haven’t taken a single afternoon to themselves in over a month.
