  • These are roughly 28,835 Jelly Beans.

  • I counted out 500 of them and used those to weigh the rest.

  • In this pile, there is one Jelly Bean for each day that the average American will live.

  • You might have more beans in your life, or maybe less, but on average this is the time we have.

  • Here's a single bean. It's your very first day.

  • A special day, but kind of a rough day on everyone involved.

  • Add 364 more and you have the first year of your life.

  • Now for a sense of scale, here are your first fifteen years. 5,475 days.

  • Which brings us to the threshold of adulthood. And at that moment this is the time that we have left.

  • And this is, on average, what we will do with all that time.

  • We will be asleep for a total 8,477 days.

  • If we're lucky some of the time will be sleeping next to someone we love.

  • We will be in the process of eating, drinking, or preparing food for 1,635 days.

  • We will be at work, hopefully doing something satisfying for the equivalent of 3,202 of those days.

  • 1,099 days will be spent commuting or travelling from one place to another, maybe a little bit more if you live in LA.

  • On average we will watch television in one form or another for a total of 2,676 days.

  • House hold activities, like chores and tending to our pets and shopping will take another 1,576 days.

  • And we will care for the needs and well being of others, our friends and family, for 564 days.

  • We will spend 671 days bathing, grooming, and doing all other bathroom related activities.

  • And another 720 will go to community activities like religious and civic duties, charities, and taking classes.

  • After we remove all those beans, this is what remains. This is the time that we have left.

  • Time for laughing, swimming, making art, going on hikes, text messages, reading, checking facebook.

  • Playing softball, maybe even teaching yourself how to play the guitar.

  • So what are you going to do with this time?

  • How much of it do you think you've already used up?

  • If you only had half of it, what would you do differently?

  • What about half of that? How much time have you already spent worrying instead of doing something that you love?

  • What if you just had one more day?

  • What are you going to do today?

These are roughly 28,835 Jelly Beans.
