If you live 80 years you will shed 80 liters of tears and other figures about what you will live and experience

Eighty years of life expectancy means living around 30,000 days. 30,000 days is 1,000 months. On average, you’ll live at least three-quarters of all the days of your life with hardly any critical health problems, which is a relief.

But you will also experience, gain or lose all these things.

You will work 10% of your life

  • Your heart will beat 2.8 billion times (75 times per minute, 4,500 times per hour, 108,000 times per day)
  • You will spend an average 3.5 years eating without leaving the table. If you eat balanced, you will devour about 7,300 eggs and 160 kg of chocolate.
  • You will walk an average of 22,000 kilometers. You will almost go around the world.
  • You will blink 415 billion times.
  • You will lose 19 kg of skin from scratching.
  • You will expel 40,000 liters of urine.
  • Dislodging about 4,400 kg of excrement in six months.
  • Your eyes will shed 80 liters of tears. Most of your tears will be secreted solely and exclusively to keep your eyes moist (a sufficient amount of tears are produced per day to fill 3 sewing thimbles).
  • Your hair will grow 950 kilometers.
  • You will work almost 3,000 days, that is, 8 years. 10% of your life.
  • You will speak for a total of 12 years with about 2,000 different people. With some you will end up kissing for a total of 2 weeks.
  • And best of all, it is more than likely that you live all this, or at least now it’s more likely than ever before in history: Nothing ago, in 1966, when the Beatles recorded Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, from 31% to 2.5%: only 2 out of every 100 people did not reach the age of majority. In 2009, less than 1% died before turning 16. And the survivors, who are almost all, had an 87% probability of reaching 64 years (and 92% if you were a woman).
  • Yes, we are all going to die one day (unless medical science manages to find the key to eternal life). We have about 30,000 days (or 1,000 months), especially if you live in Europe or North America. Take advantage of them.

    And if you feel that you lack time, that the day does not spread, maybe it’s not so much that you are busier now or that you work more, but your time is worth more than before, as you can see in the following video:
