# How many hours a day do you spend staring at a screen?

1. Today I was thinking about how many hours in a day I spend on the computer.

On weekdays I spend 8 hours a day on the computer at work and probably another 5 hours after work. So that's a total of 13 hours.

On the weekends I probably spend about 10 hours a day.

So that's 13*5 + 10*2 = 85 hours a week on the computer. There are 168 hours in week, so that's 85/168 = 50.6% of my life on the computer.

This doesn't even count the time I spend on my cell phone, playbook and watching TV.

It's pretty shocking when I think about it.

2. I work 40 hours a week on my computer, and usually and hour or 2 before and after. I can't really do more than that because I need to move around and my eyes hurt after 10 hours a day.

I wish I could spend less, but this job pays too damn good. I'm thinking about finding a job that gets me out of the house, even if it pays less.

3. Too much..

4. WAY too much......

5. Like.... a lot... Holy fuck bro .... that tripped me out! Grazi for the realization. Ima go outside

6. Maybe 2. I'd go bat shit crazy if I sat in front of this fucking screen any longer..

7. What else do you do all day then?

If I didn't have my computer I wouldn't know what to do with myself.

8. depends. some days I'm in front of a screen damn near all day
others I don't even post on GC

9. My phone screen probably at least 3 hours. A computer or TV screen? Almost 0

10. unfortunately the vast majority of them.....

11. To fucking much. That's for sure.

12. About 9 hours a day for work, Unless im in the workshop.

12 hours a day give or take it would change depending on what type of stuff i gotta do at work though.

Which is dumb because by the end of my workday I've already surfed all my regular sites and read all the interesting stories, then I go home and do it for like four additional hours

14. I work around the house a lot. Lately I've been doing some landscape work in the front yard when I get home from work. I just pop on the internet for about half an hour while suppers cooking/eating. Then at night after I smoke I come on here for an hour and a half then go to bed..
