Few things beat the prospect of a nice relaxing evening indoors

And, a study of 1,500 Brits, conducted by Sofology, has found 79 per cent of people are at their happiest indoors - with millennials leading the charge to stay indoors.

Looking into our thoughts about staying in, over half (58 per cent) believe it gives them a greater sense of safety, while for 43 per cent, it's the perfect setting for enjoying some much-needed alone time.

In fact, 83 per cent of millennials would prefer to stay in, rather than being out, and added that they love being at home for the breathing space it gives them.

When examining what we enjoy doing when at home, 61 per cent said it's being able to relax.

The study also looked into what we like doing at home, with our favourite activity, unsurprisingly, being relaxing (54 per cent), followed by watching TV (46 per cent) and films (35 per cent).

Jan Duckworth, Sofology’s Marketing Manager, says: "We wanted to see if a fast-paced digitally connected world may impact how people choose to spend their time at home. It’s clear that the nation feel much more happy and comfortable spending their spare time at home, whether it’s with their loved ones or just on their own for some peace and quiet."
