We all think our time is valuable.. But, there are differences in regards to the time pressures we feel and how much stress this causes. Recent NAB survey on Australia’s wellbeing has shown that
• People who said they are under the most time pressure are young and middle aged people, people with children and high income earners. And, the greater your time pressures the more stress you feel.
• On average, we’re spending less time on holidays, leisure activities away from home (e.g. eating out, movies,etc.), with friends, sleeping, travelling on public transport and on social media (except for young people). But, we’re spending more time on household chores, responding to emails, leisure activities at home (e.g. watching TV and reading) and caring for/spending time with our family.
• In terms of work or study, young and middle aged men spend more hours than women (middle aged men 7 hrs more per week and young men 4 hrs more). Commute times for men 18-49 also eats up 2-3.5 hrs more of their week. In terms of leisure, young men have more time than young women (just over 6 hrs per week) as do over 50s (around 2 hrs). In contrast, middle aged men have less (around 1½ hrs).
• Women (especially young women) spend more time on household chores and other activities. Women aged 18-29 spend 10 hrs more per week on household duties (e.g. housework, preparing meals and organising children) than men. This gap narrows as we age (8 hrs for women 30-49 and less than 7 hrs for over 50s).
