6 things you do in the privacy of your own home

Where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.

ARE WE ALONE in feeling like our homes are our sanctuaries?

At the end of a long commute, there’s no better place to crash than your own couch. We need to let it all hang out – and the only place you can do that is at home.

1. Dance in your underpants

Got the house all to yourself? Or just have a pretty understanding flatmate?

Blare that music. It’s time to rock out as nature intended.

Let your freak flag fly – it’s your gaff, after all.

2. Eat in bed

There is no need to be ashamed. We’re all friends here.

If you’re really going full-on recluse, you could even eat that pasta in bed and directly out of the pot.

Who would ever know?

3. Throw on the onesie

As soon as you get in the door, it’s time to literally slip into something a little more comfortable. Swap those work clothes for something cosy and, let’s be honest, ugly.

Tatty dressing gown, PJ bottoms, slippers, slanket, onesie – it all works.

4. Practice your Oscar speech

“I’d like to thank the Academy. And the guy from the deli who is generous with the cheese in my chicken fillet. Oh and my mam.”

“You love me, you really love me!”

5. Sing your heart out in the shower

The shower at home is the perfect place to work out your vocal cords.

Home is where the high note is.

6. Enjoy trash TV

At work, you engage in discussions about history documentaries and pretend to enjoy art house cinema.

When you get home, you stick on 5 episodes of Jersey Shore and shout at the television.

It just isn’t “home” if you can’t lounge around in your pants, dancing in front of the mirror, singing along with a hairbrush – now, is it?
