If your top resolution for 2018 is to start using your time in a more useful or valuable way, the first thing you need to know is why, how, and when you’re wasting your time now. Do you have the feeling your eyes spend too many hours in front of a screen? The good news is you’re not alone — as this infographic by GoCompare shows, globally, we spend 7.5 billion hours online every day. That’s 856,164 years spent online every day.
But don’t panic — recognizing you have a problem is the first step to solving it. Once you identify your biggest time suckers (is it Twitter? Netflix? Tinder? all of them?), look at the infographic’s best section, where it tells us some offline things we could be doing instead. Climb a mountain. Visit the Seven Wonders of the World. Run a marathon. Or simply get outside and leave your phone behind.
