Find out how other individuals spent their time “NOT” cleaning. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this is how Americans spent their “extra” leisure time in 2009.

Leisure Activities in 2009

--On an average day, nearly everyone age 15 and over (96 percent)
     engaged in some sort of leisure activity, such as watching TV,
     socializing, or exercising. Of those who engaged in leisure
     activities, men spent more time in these activities (5.8 hours) 
     than did women (5.1 hours). (See table 1.)

   --Watching TV was the leisure activity that occupied the most time
     (2.8 hours per day), accounting for about half of leisure time, 
     on average, for those age 15 and over. Socializing, such as visit-
     ing with friends or attending or hosting social events, was the 
     next most common leisure activity, accounting for nearly three-
     quarters of an hour per day. (See table 1.)

   --Men were more likely than women to participate in sports, exercise, 
     or recreation on any given day--21 percent compared with 16 percent. 
     On the days that they participated, men also spent more time in 
     these activities than did women, 2.0 hours compared with 1.4 hours. 
     (See table 1.)

   --On an average day, adults age 75 and over spent 7.8 hours engaged in
     leisure activities--more than any other age group; 35- to 44-year-
     olds spent 4.3 hours engaged in leisure and sports activities--less 
     than other age groups. (See table 11.)

   --Time spent reading for personal interest and playing games or using a 
     computer for leisure varied greatly by age. Individuals age 75 and 
     over averaged 1.0 hour of reading per weekend day and 26 minutes 
     playing games or using a computer for leisure.  Conversely, individuals
     ages 15 to 19 read for an average of 5 minutes per weekend day while 
     spending 1.0 hour playing games or using a computer for leisure. 
     (See table 11.)

   --Employed adults living in households with no children under 18 engaged 
     in leisure activities for 4.5 hours per day, an hour more than employed 
     adults living with a child under age 6. (See table 8.)
