Whether your own particular brand of time wasting includes washing bedding in the middle of the day, clicking like multiply times on every social media update you come across or emptying your bank account via the Topshop website, we know that when it comes to procrastination students have a very well-defined and particular talent. We were still shocked at the news that some students spend two months every year putting off their work to indulge in much less important task, though. Yes, you read that right – two months students spend procrastinating. Every year. The frankly ridiculous statistic comes from accommodation provider Vita Student, which surveyed more than 800 students across the UK to find out how easily they are distracted, what they end up doing instead and what could help them concentrate better. The company found that the average student spends two to three hours a day procrastinating when they should be working – which adds up to a whopping 45 days annually. More than a quarter (26%) of respondents said they are distracted by more than four hours every day, which amounts to more than two whole months wasted every year.
