In case you were in need of some mid-week motivation to turn off Netflix and make it to your workout, here goes: The average human will spend less than one percent of their entire life exercising, yet 41 percent engaging with technology. Yikes.

The stats comes from a global study that Reebok just revealed as part of their 25,915 Days campaign. That number correlates to the number of days in the average human lifespan (71 years)-and aims to inspire people to 'honor their days' by spending more time on physical fitness.

The study looked at survey data from more than 90,000 respondents from nine countries around the world (the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Mexico, Russia, Korea, and Spain) to determine that the average human spends just 180 of their 25,915 days exercising. To put this in perspective, they found that 10,625 days of the average human life are spent engaging with a screen, be it a phone, tablet, laptop, or other electronic device.

The researchers also broke down some trends country by country. Good news for Americans-we were the most adventurous of all the countries that were measured, reportedly trying something new seven times per month on average. (Thanks, ClassPass!) Not surprisingly, that also meant we spend the most money on fitness: $16.05 per week. (Thanks again, ClassPass!)

Reebok even released a 60-second film that chronicles one woman's life and passion for running in reverse to keep you inspired.

Sure, calculating how many days you have left might seem a little depressing, but it's certainly a welcome reminder to seize the day and get your butt moving. And the good news is that even if you don't have a ton of time to devote to working out, a couple minutes here and there can add up to make a huge impact-studies have repeatedly shown that quick workouts can make you happier, healthier, and fitter. Seriously, even one minute of intense exercise can make a difference. (Got 10 to spare? Try this metabolic conditioning workout to reap the physical and mental perks!)

Quia culpa expedita mollitia qui exercitationem quia doloremque. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
