Some of us are getting fed up with spending all of our time at home - it's understandable. However, if we use this time wisely we could really enjoy it, and come out of lockdown as more well-rounded individuals.

Here are 20 of our best suggestions for how to spend your time during lockdown.

1. Write something - a blog, a journal, a short story, or even a novel!

2. Bake something. It's very relaxing and you get a yummy treat at the end. Set aside a whole day and make a cake that's truly magnificent.
