I'm pretty sure everyone who works wishes they had more free time. And that would definitely be amazing for a little while. But believe it or not, eventually you'd get sick of that too. (Shocking, I know!)

According to a new study out of the University of Pennsylvania and UCLA, the right amount of free time to have is two-and-a-half hours a day. No less, but also no more.

If you have less free time than that, it'll have a negative impact on how satisfied you are with your life. But if you have more free time than that, you'll eventually feel like you don't have enough of a purpose and that will also have a negative effect on how satisfied you are with your life.

Here is a challenge, though. During your free time, try putting your smart phone down, and try doing something away from screens. THAT seems like the real challenge. And I'm not saying I'd do well with it either!
