We all want more free time, more time to do what we want with our lives - from hobbies to simply sitting around with our feet up. But can we have too much down-time? Is there a point where relaxation becomes detrimental to us?

And what does science tell us is the way to get the most bang for our buck from our previous few hours away from it all?

This week Luke explores the science of leisure time and lets us know how the data can steer us towards making the most of our next break.
