New Tool Calculates Your Sleep And What You Could Have Been Doing

A new online tool calculates how much of your life you’ve spent asleep – and just what you could have achieved if you had been awake instead.  The test gives you the average number of days, weeks and years you have spent in the land of nod based on your age.  It also estimates how much time you’re likely to have spent dreaming about a range of things – from money to sex – as well as the calories burnt while tucked up in bed.  The My Life Asleep calculator, devised by Hillarys Blinds, also tells you exactly what you could have been doing had you not spent that time in bed.  At 31 years old, the average person has spent 12 years sleeping or the equivalent of 627 weeks or 105,362 hours.  Based on research on the content and duration of dreams, the test then reveals the average person of this age would have spent 132 hours dreaming about money, 1,646 about success, 4,610 about misfortune, 6,849 about friends and family, 659 about eating, 1,054 about sex, 527 about failing and 1,449 about sadness compared to 2,634 about happiness.  The tool goes on to reveal how many calories have been burnt during that time – 7,390,091 for a 31-year-old, which is the same as 14,457 Big Macs, 102,640 apples and 53,166 cans of fizzy drinks.  The test also cites examples of what you could achieved had you been awake – which, for a 31-year-old, included the two years it took to build the Eiffel Tower, the three years it took to build the Shard in London and the four year construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
