The Bureau of Statistics figures provide a snapshot of how Australians while the days away and show that we are spending less time per week on recreation and leisure activities such as sports, games and arts and craft, although we now spend an extra hour a week zoning out in front of the television or roaming through cyberspace.

But the differences are most stark between the sexes.

Although men and women spend similar amounts of time “working” (between 51 and 52 hours a week), men spend more time in paid employment and women spend substantially more time on unpaid work.

so where to from here?

Opens up many possibilities really doesn’t it…
