The average child now spends around 8 hours each day online/texting/playing computer games/listening to MP3s.
This figure has risen by 90 minutes since 2005…
This is the first in a regular series of depressing statistics I have been sent by reader Jim Hardy in response to my manifesto for 2011. I hope that they provide some food for thought.
90% of us do not feel that our current job is our vocation
60% do insufficient physical activity or are overweight
54% would like to take time out for an adventure or to travel
40% have not stood on a mountain or swum in natural water
This Needs To Change. Start Here. Now. Challenge yourself with a microadventure. Challenge someone else to join you. Offer them some encouragement.
