Beds are comfortable and no one ever really wants to leave them. That’s why we spend nearly half of our lives in bed, according to a new study.

The average American spends 11 hours per day in bed...it’s usually 7 hours of sleep and 4 hours of everything from watching TV, getting it on or staring at the ceiling contemplating the meaning of life. Scientists calculated that we spend about 36 total years of our lives just hanging out in bed. With Americans living to about age 78, that means we spend almost half of our life in bed. Given how tired we are in general, maybe we could use a little more quality time with our mattress!
