Oftentimes, fast living in the modern world leaves people stressed because we are unable to reconcile our desires and obligations with our personal and professional life.
We rarely take a break in our daily routine and take time for ourselves, our family and friends – the results of an online survey conducted by Addiko Bank in Serbia, in the first week of July, show.
Two-thirds of those surveyed admit that they rarely find time for themselves, and only 16% do so every day; family commitments (55%) and work commitments (32%) are cited as the main reasons for the chronic lack of time.
When taking a moment to relax, the majority of respondents (77%) spend their free time resting or on cultural events (15%), while 7% of them do recreational/sports activities.

65% of respondents read books (25% do so every day), three-quarters of citizens regularly watch at least one television series, and just over half spend at least one hour a day playing with their children.
The results of the online survey show that respondents consider queuing as the biggest waste of time (42%): the longest waiting time is at the doctor’s (43%), in the shop (20%), then in the local municipal offices (19%) and in the bank (18%).
70% of people use city transport uses and more than half of them spend at least 15 minutes a day waiting at the bus stop.
The cumulative daily waiting time varies between 30 and 60 minutes, which most people spend on going on social media (36%) and playing games (22%). This is not surprising as 54% of respondents spend at least one hour a day looking at their mobile phone’s screen.
