  • Nowadays, I spend a lot of time at home.

  • I spend a lot of time home these days.

    play icon

These days I spend a lot of time at home.
Nowadays, I spend a lot of time at home.
I spend a lot of time home these days.

When you want to explain to someone that you spend a lot of time at home these days, you can use one of these three sentences. All say the same thing, more or less, they are only worded differently.

Pick one. Try it out. Pick another one. Give that a go. And see which suits you best.

I hope that helps.
Have a great day.

  • I seem to be housebound these days. I stay at home so much currently.

    play icon

  • I feel as though I never get out and about anymore, I seem to be housebound.

    play icon

Some women describe themselves as a stay at home mum.
In fact, many more people work from home these days and can feel like a prisoner in their own homes.
Bound in this context refers to being tied down. I feel as though I never get out and about anymore, I seem to be housebound.

  • I have been confined to my house a lot more recently.

    play icon

  • These days, I like to spend most of my time at home.

    play icon

  • I have been spending my time at home a lot lately.

    play icon

In the first sentence, the word "confined", which means to be stuck or bound, gives the sentence a more negative sound. The second sentence indicates that you have been choosing to spend more time at home because you want to. The third sentence is neutral way to say you have been spending more time at home.

  • "I've been spending a lot of time at home in the last couple of weeks."

  • "I've been a bit of a hermit lately."

    play icon

  • "I have been hibernating."

    play icon

"I've been spending a lot of time at home in the last couple of weeks." This example is the most direct way of saying exactly what you have requested.

"I've been a bit of a hermit lately." This example is an informal way of saying the above, using the noun 'hermit' which refers to someone who is spending a lot of time in solitude.

"I have been hibernating." This is another informal example using the process of 'hibernation' to explain your own actions, that is, staying indoors with minimal interaction. It is using 'hibernation' as a metaphor for your own reclusive actions.

  • I hardly go out nowadays.

    play icon

  • Of late, I've been spending a great deal of time at home.

    play icon

  • I'm home a lot these days.

    play icon

:I hardly go out nowadays.
> hardly suggests a small amount, let's say like five percent (5%), in terms of percentage. Therefore, in this sentence you are saying that you spend a small amount of time outside your house. You are mostly inside your house.

:Of late, I've been spending a great deal of time at home.
> of late is a formal word which means recently or these days.
>a great deal means a lot or a large amount.
So, in this sentence you are saying that you spend a large amount of time in the house.

  • I've been at home a lot recently.

    play icon

  • I've spent a lot of time at home recently.

    play icon

  • I spend a lot of time at home these days.

    play icon

Within these sentences, we have two verb choices either, "to be," or, "to spend," to describe where we have been spending our time in a specific place. To describe that it's something that has been happening more often that before we can use the adverb, "recently," or the term, "these days."

  • Nowadays I spend a lot of time at home in my free time.

    play icon

  • I like my own company nowadays at home.

    play icon

  • I like to have cosy nights in my home.

    play icon

These sentences above indicate that you have been at home spending time there more often than being out. Any of the three sentences will suffice in letting someone know about you spending more time at home recently.
My own company means yourself and no one else so you like to be on your own and you prefer your own company.

  • Lately, you can find me at home most of the time.

  • I am always at home of late.

    play icon

  • I enjoy spending most of my time at home these days.

If you spend a lot of your time at home, use the sentences above to express that.
Sometimes we go through periods where we find we are not often at home because of certain reasons like ill-health or having to prepare for exams or school projects.

Friends may ask you what you have been doing and you can respond by saying that you have been spending most of your time at home lately.

"I spend most of my time at home lately because of the amount of work I need to complete."
"You can find me at home most of the time, I am enjoying my time indoors because the weather is too hot for me to bear."
"I can't bear going out every night so I am mostly at home, enjoying indoor activities."
"I am at home, I spend most my time here because I am not feeling very well but soon as I am better again, I will be out and about."



Bear: withstand, cope with
Out and about: outdoors visiting places

  • Nowadays I tend to be housebound.

    play icon

  • I've been living the life of a hermit.

    play icon

1. Nowadays I tend to be housebound.
Typically if you are housebound then it's as a result
of being old or ill. Recently the phrase has also come to
mean that a person has been spending a lot of their time
at home and rarely ventures outdoors.

2. I've been living the life of a hermit.
A hermit refers to a person who lives in solitude (the
state of being alone). If you've been living the life of a
hermit then it means that you've been sending a lot
of time indoors and that you have not not really been
socializing with others.

Someone who spends a lot of time at home is a person who is housebound. They don't get out of the house very often. For example: I don't get out the house very often, the only time I get out of the house is to go to the supermarket.
