    1. If you have 3 minutes: Try a brain dump.

    2. If you have 5 minutes: Invest in a cleaning candle.


    I own several of these candles and they are truly brilliant. The "Open Window" and the Chef's Candle both smell pleasant, while also eliminating cooking odours. You should be able to pick them up for about a fiver and they last for ages too.

    3. If you have 10 minutes: Read about some kind things people have done.

    4. If you have 15 minutes: Play Magic Mansion.

    Chelsey says: "This adorable game offers a major throwback to your old favourite Nintendo classics. With one-touch gameplay, avoid traps and jump your way through the charming but challenging platform levels."

    Get it for iTunes or Android.

    6. If you have 30 minutes: Get dancing.

    7. If you have 30 seconds: Google "Pulis jumping".
