I walk my dog twice a day so leave the house twice per day everyday for about an hour each time. I also pop up my mum's once or twice a week for coffee. I tend to be out on both weekend days doing something or other. So I leave my house close to 20 times a week!

For me that defo wouldn’t be normal! I leave twice a day for school runs for a start and then I probably leave home at least once a day in addition to this; yesterday I left the house 3 times for various reasons so I’d say I leave the house at least 20 times a week!

Depends entirely on circumstances. Perfectly normal for lots of people- elderly, working from home, etc. Not normal if you have a dog, work outside the home, etc. I WFH and have a chronic illness so not unusual for me to not leave home every day but I probably go out 3-5 times a week, even if sometimes just for a very short walk.

Depends. I WFH and in the school holidays there's been a few days I haven't left the house while I've been working and DH has taken the kids out in the day. I do go to the gym every other evening to make sure I get out the house though. In term time, it's most days because I do the school run.
Since covid, my parents have become a lot more insular and don't go out much.

It was normal for me over the winter, during lockdown.
I am still WFH and back when the gym was closed I went out only once a week and that was to do a food shop. By the time I finished work it was too dark, and often wet to go for a walk or anything.
I go out more now, but still WFH so not as often as some.

I wouldn’t say it’s normal but then, really, normal is very hard to quantify for anything.
Personally, at a bare minimum on a day off, three times a day. First thing mooch with the dog, loop of the farm with the dog and to check stock, evening walk with, you guessed it, the dog
Realistically tho, I work three days a week and do something with friends or family at least two other days a week, so I leave the farm at least five days out of seven.

I’m hardly at home! I have 2 dogs, 3 horse, run, work out of the house and have kids so I’m out at least 3 times a day. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t leave the house for a day. Are you worried you’re becoming insular? Normal is different for everyone but I don’t feel well if I’m in inside all day I need fresh air.
