The clocks will be put back by an hour at 2am on Sunday, giving us all an extra 60 minutes to enjoy. Here's our suggestions for making the most of this extra time.

Have a lazy breakfast in bed

It's the most important meal of the day - so why not boil some eggs, grill some bacon, or toast a couple of muffins and treat yourself to breakfast in bed.

For inspiration, head to BBC Good Food, which offers 34 different recipes to create the ultimate breakfast in bed.

Indulge in retail therapy

Spend your extra hour treating yourself in the shops, or making a start on your Christmas shopping.

To head to the sales, take a look at the diary of sales on Money Saving Expert.

Enjoy an autumnal walk

As the leaves fall from the trees, take the chance to get yourself out of the house and take in the great outdoors.

If you fancy trying somewhere new, the National Trust has compiled this list of secret walks across the country.

Catch up with a friend

Life is hectic and there never seems to be enough time to see everyone - so seize upon your valuable extra hour to visit a friend or family member.

Even a brief hour-long catch up is bound to give you the feel-good factor afterwards.

Lose yourself in a box set

Use your extra hour to squeeze in an extra episode of the box set you're currently working your way through.

Netflix has hundreds of series to choose from, including these top picks as suggested by The Week.
