HONOLULU (KHON2) — Many of us are spending more time indoors than ever before with lockdowns and restrictions. And it might be creating a lot of couch potatoes.
Hawaii news on the go–LISTEN to KHON 2GO weekday mornings at 8 a.m.
According to a furniture company called Article, the average American is spending two more hours a day, sitting on their couch since March.
That doesn’t sound too bad, except when you tally up the numbers, that’s 448 hours in 32 weeks.
A lot of people are binge watching shows they never had time to before.
But being a couch potato isn’t always looked down upon.
In Germany, a government commercial praises couch potatoes for staying home and staying safe. Claiming the couch is the front line and people’s patience is their weapon.
