The average human being spends approximately 2.5 hours per day on average in their job. There is so much data and data that is out there about this that the average person is pretty confident that their average daily tasks will take 10+ hours.
People often underestimate the amount of time they spend with their job. The average person spends 2.5 hours per day on average working. That leaves a gap of a mere 1.5 hours per day that they do not spend working. The average person does not have their time taken away from them.
As we’ve learned, there is no such thing as “the working day,” because it’s a moving target. The work day may last 10 hours, or it may last 1 hour. Those are the only two possibilities, and they are not interchangeable. The time you spend on work is not the same as the time you spend with work.
The work day starts at 8:30 AM. That means, you would have to spend 7.5 hours at work on day one, and 1 hour on day two. On day three, you would have spent 1 hour on work. So if you are doing 2 hours of work on day one, you would have only spent 1.5 hours on work on day three. And that would be the average of days 2 and 3.
The average day is 7.5 hours.
In a way, the work day is basically the same as the work week. When your “normal” work day is 4 hours, but when you are working “extra” hours you get 2 hours.
I don’t think I’ve ever worked the standard 2 hours of work. But I do know that I spend a lot more time on my work than I do on my family’s home.
In a way, your work day is the same as your work week, but it’s not. We spend more time on our work in the week than we do on our work-life balance. Every day you spend working is another day you don’t have your family to take care of. You have to spend time with them, so they don’t have to spend time taking care of you.
As you know, our family is pretty frugal right now, but we do have to be mindful of the fact that our jobs are in fact very frugal. Since we live in a rural area, we only have so much cash to go around, so we spend a lot of money on things that require a lot of planning. For example, we bought a new computer that required a lot of planning to get it set up and running.
When it comes to spending money though, we are pretty frugal. For example, the last time we bought a new refrigerator, we spent $300 on it. Now that we have a larger home we have spent more than $200 just to get the fridge sorted and hooked up, and that cost us almost $300.
