What. A. Year. On the surface, this year has seemed pretty dire, but there have been positives too. Lockdown forced us to take a step back, change our routines and reflect on normal life. Were we happier when life was more constrained? As things slowly return to normal Kate Humble (A Year of Living Simply), James Wallman (Time and How We Spend It) and Julian Baggini (Life: A User’s Manual), with Hashi Mohammed, ask how can we harness this moment to make a positive change and shape our post-lockdown lives for the better?
