Lockdown. More active or less?

How did you spend lockdown? Has your activity gone down, or up.  We looked at some information from Government which looked at changes that we made, as a nation.

Less time was spent on travelling (less by 1 hour and 6 minutes a day) and work, and more time was spent on free time, gardening, DIY, sleep and rest.

People spent longer watching TV or streaming videos. – 2 hours and 53 minutes a day.

28 minutes per day reading

26 minutes playing games (including computer games)

16 minutes a day staying in touch with family and friends (mostly remotely)

39 minutes a day doing DIY or gardening

1 hour 24 minutes per day eating and drinking (including takeaways and alcohol)

Cooking and doing the washing up – just under an hour per day.
