Most time is spent indoors

The Dutch spend an average of 21 hours a day indoors, but almost half of them think they are outside people, according to research by skin cream company Vaseline, quoted by news agency ANP.

Most people say pressure of work is the main reason they do not spend more time outdoors. But even at the weekends people only spend a few more minutes outside, the survey shows.
