Carrie, tell us — the best TV show/s you’ve recently binged.

I’ve watched a lot of the newer shows, Love is Blind and Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness but started re-watching Breaking Bad. It still holds up as the best show of all time.

What film would you highly recommend to watch while pretending to work?

Any comedy or romcom. I recently watched Mrs. Doubtfire and Along came Polly.

What book has helped you get to sleep during the quiet nights of late?

I’m reading Wired for Love so that I can make the most out of this time with my partner.

Name your go-to comfort dish to ease the worst feelings of existential despair.

A congee recipe from Basically. We’ve made it four times in the last two weeks.

We all need new procrastination tools in these uncertain times, what exhilarating hobby have you recently added to your resume?

We just adopted a puppy so I am spending my free time learning how to train him. I’m also considering learning Italian.

Increased mindfulness is essential in this climate — what are your top tips for getting out of your head.

I take a walk in my neighbourhood and check in with my partner about my feelings.

Give a piece of advice to those trying to work from home.

Make a list. I divide my to-do list into AM and PM so that it’s really clear what needs to be done first. And the best part is checking off everything you’ve done.
