28,835

That’s how many days, on average, each of us are given. Some more, some less, but each of us roughly have 79 years… or 28,835 days.

The following is, on average, how we will spend that time.

We will spend 5,475 days in first 15 years of life, bringing us to the threshold of adulthood. This leaves us with 23,360 days.

We will be asleep for 8,477 days and, if we’re lucky, some of that time will be sleeping next to someone we love. We will be in the process of eating, drinking or preparing food for 1,635 days. We will be at work, hopefully doing something satisfying, for 3,202 days and we will spend 1,099 days commuting or traveling. We will spend 2,676 days watching TV in one form or another and 1,576 days will be spent doing household chores, tending to pets and shopping.

We will care for the needs and well-being of friends and family for 564 days, and another 671 days will be spent bathing, grooming and all other bathroom related activates. We will spend 720 days on community activities (religious and civic duties, charities and taking classes).

After all those days are gone, we are left with 2,740 days. This is what remains. This is the time we have left. This is our time for laughing, swimming, making art, going on hikes, texting, reading, checking Facebook, playing softball… and maybe even teaching yourself how to play the guitar.

What are you going to do with this time? What are you going to do with those 2,740 days? How many of those days have you already used up?

If you only had half of those days remaining, what would you do differently?

What about half of that? What would you do if you only had 25% of your life remaining?

How much time have you already spent worrying, instead of doing something that you love?

What if you just had one more day?
