How a woman spends her `perfect` day

London: An ideal day for a woman includes at least 56 minutes of shopping, 82 minutes relaxing and a further 46 minutes napping, a bare 36 minutes working, 33 commuting, 50 minutes spent preparing food, 75 actually eating it and about 106 minutes spent on “intimate relations,” a survey has revealed.

The survey, carried out by scientists in the US and Germany, concludes that a little of what you fancy is good for you but a lot might turn your day sour.

“Our research asks what a perfect day would look like if we take into account the crucial fact that even the most pleasurable activities are usually less enjoyable the longer they last and the more often we do them,” the Independent quoted the researchers as saying.

The researchers surveyed more than 900 women, average age 38, in employment.

The women were questioned about how they spent their day and how they felt about it.
