The team over at the Exec blog have worked out just how much of your seemingly lengthy life actually belongs to you, and not to work, education or chores.

They include time taken up by sleep, showering, shopping and watching television and ultimately come up with a worryingly short amount of time in our lifetimes that are actually ours to do with as we please.

I feel as though it’s important we warn you that this infographic may ruin your day if you’re prone to existential crisis, depending upon how you look at it. Before you scroll down I’d like you to remember:

“It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

– Abraham Lincoln
