Enjoy a well-earned lazy day

Give yourself a break, with the help of these apps.

Give yourself a break. Honestly, you’re working too hard. You deserve a little ‘me’ time to watch some good shows, eat tasty food and veg out with great games.

Read on for the perfect app-powered lazy day…

Stream your favourites

Step one: what are you going to watch? If you’re having a duvet day, you need some bingeable TV to get things started. If you’re looking for some old favourites, you’ll find loads to choose from on BritBox. Gavin & Stacey, Broadchurch, a spot of Downton Abbey… it’s all there, like a comforting blanket of telly warmth.

You can also catch up with the latest variety shows, documentaries and movies on ITV Hub. Unlock a monthly subscription to go ad-free.

Find your old favourites on Britbox.

With ’80s nostalgia and monsters, misanthropic ex-TV-star horses (yes, we’re serious) and political intrigue, Netflix has an Original for every possible mood. We recommend the bizarre documentary Tiger King and Unorthodox, a drama about a young woman who flees her Hasidic Jewish community.

Order takeaway

No lazy day is complete without a browse through your various takeaway apps to see what you fancy for supper. You definitely don’t need to cook today.

Deliveroo serves up local eateries near you. Handily, if one of you really wants Thai curry and the other is dead set on a cheeseburger, it’s no problem to order from various places and wait for your chosen treats to arrive.

Deliveroo is the perfect option when you can’t be bothered with cooking.

Meanwhile Just Eat helps you choose your dinner by filtering restaurants by cuisine. It’s particularly good at highlighting top-rated places and reviews from other users. Can’t find what you’re craving? Try Uber Eats. Some restaurants are exclusive to the app.

Relax and unwind

You’re fed and you’ve watched some great TV. What’s next for your lazy day? A spot of gaming and self-care.

Enjoy some quiet, creative time with digital colouring book, April Coloring. Alternatively, if you want high-octane racing thrills, Mario Kart Tour is the perfect choice. Just watch out for those banana peels when you go round corners.

Enjoy a bit of meditative colouring-in.

One of our standout favourites is Holedown. All you do is drag your finger and fire little white balls at the blocks on screen. The number on each block represents how many hits you need to destroy it. It’s the best kind of time-thief.

Love match 3 games? Then you absolutely need Candy Crush Friends Saga. Before you can exclaim, “Sweet!” you’ll be a couple of hundred levels in and loving every minute.
