However, one thing many will also have done more of over recent months is tune into daytime TV.
Despite their arguably being some stigma when it comes to daytime programming, there are undoubtedly some gems which grace screens while the sun is high in the sky.
One of these has long been The Doctors, a talk show which has been entertaining and informing audiences since way back in 2008.
