ZeFrank, executive video producer at Buzzfeed, illustrates the time we have left in our lives using 28,835 jelly beans, which is the total amount of days we have, on average, to live. He sections off portions of the jelly bean mountain to give us an idea of how many days the average human spends doing activities like sleeping (8,477 days), commuting (1,099 days), watching television (2,676 days), and eating and drinking (1635 days—more for Vik).

After all of these days are removed from the pile, what is left is a tiny mound of 2,000 beans, which represents the number of days you have in your life to do everything else you love. So get off your smart phone and make ‘em count.
