Whilst the coronavirus death toll in the UK continues to climb and the lockdown is expected to remain in place for some time to come, some are fantasising about a return to normal life.

The pandemic has turned lives upside down, removing big milestones and celebrations from calendars, and many of life's small joys.

The sport supplement brand Lyvit has asked 3,000 members of the British public what activities will be top their list after the lockdown has been lifted.

When the government removes current social distancing rules, there are five top general activities that people are eager to do. At number one is going out for dinner, followed by having sex, then going on holiday, to the gym and hosting a dinner party.

Lyvit also surveyed participants about the more extreme activities they fancy ticking off their post-pandemic bucket list. The most popular was to go skydiving, then run a marathon, climb a mountain, learn to ski and cycle an iconic route.

They also discovered coronavirus has altered British people's attitude to life, with over two thirds, or 68 per cent, planing to 'live life more fully.'

This sense of adventure translates to the bedroom too; when analysing the results in further depth, it was apparent that Brits not only want to have sex once lockdown is over, but are eager to try more kinks and explore fetishes.

Unsurprisingly, the biggest change to day-to-day life has been social distancing, and two fifths of people, or 42 per cent, said they are trying to be more active at the moment.

Additionally, a fifth said they are actually speaking to their family more, and a third are being more careful with their money.

Less than a tenth reported no changes at all, and Lyvit's founders said: "The coronavirus pandemic has significantly altered the way we live our lives, and the impact will be felt far into the future.

"That’s why we decided to commission this research, to see what the British public plan to do once social-distancing stops – and it’s thrilling to see that many want to get outdoors and experience new things.
