The given pie charts illustrate how the working adults in a particular country spent their time on different activities in 1958 and 2008.
In 1958, average working adults spent 25% of their time on sleeping. Working took up 15% of their time, while the daily commutes to and back from work cost of their time in total. Apart from sleeping, working and commuting, which 10% consisted half of all the time, people 's free time was usually spent on relaxing at home (20%), hanging out with family and friends (24%), and some other activities (6%).
After half a century, by 2008, the way people allocated their time had experienced major changes. As is shown in the chart, sleeping time had been cut short to only 20% of the total amount. In contrast, the working time was prolonged by 4%, and the time of traveling to work also increased by 4%. With the increase of time related to work, people naturally needed more time relaxing at home. Besides, much less time (only 18%) was left for going out with family and friends.
All in all, comparing the way people organise their time, we can see that people now face more pressure from work and have less time to rest and relax. (209 words)
