Worried about your possible Netflix addiction? Don't stress, it's actually quite common, which means you're not alone in your struggle. Whether or not this is a good thing, we'll leave that up to you to decide. According to a study from Cordcutting.com, their findings determined that people are so deep in their binges, they spend more time in front of a screen than living an actual life. The data was revealed by taking the total number of hours people spend streaming Netflix per day and dividing it by the number of subscribers all over the world. It turns out, we're more likely to spend our minutes with Netflix than reading, exercising, socializing, communicating, relaxing (what!?) and even thinking.

In other words, we're all getting pretty lazy, and our favorite shows and movies are to blame. An average Netflixer will spend 100 minutes per day on the site compared to less than 20 minutes exercising for example. If you're constantly canceling plans to Netflix and chill at home, don't feel guilty. The average viewer spends less than 40 minutes per day with their pals. What a time to be alive. Moral of the story? Leaving your house from time to time wouldn't hurt. At the very least, sit at the park with a buddy and stream those Fuller House episodes from your phone. You're welcome.
