and Human Development
Human activity breaks the 24 hour cycle of a day roughly into thirds, with around one third of our day (8 hours) set aside for sleep, roughly one third for work or school, leaving the other third of the day for eating, commuting, socializing and all the other odds and ends of our daily lives.
