Instead of thinking about the (lack of, in many cases) time you spend doing physical activity, you might want to consider how much physical inactivity, or sedentary activity, you are getting. It is easier to multitask while lounging around in sedentary activity, but considering the number of hours you can afford to be spent lying or sitting down is still pretty striking.
