Boomers spent more time in 2009 on “personal care activities” such as sleeping and grooming, than any other activity, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The American Time Use Survey studied how much time Americans are devoting to working, childcare and other activities throughout the year, and surveyed over 13,000 Americans.
Boomers spent an average 9.25 hours each day on personal care activities, and 5.44 hours on leisure or sports. Educational activities warranted a mere 0.03 hours per day. Boomers spent almost half an hour each day caring for other people.
