… get rid of the unnecessary? Isolation has shown that our homes can be both a prison and an ideal hideaway, where there is no place for things or people that block our feelings, passion and curiosity.

… Go on a trip with Sir David Attenborough? His wildlife documentaries save me those moments when I really want to change the scenery and go to the ends of the world. I especially recommend the 2001 series "Blue Planet" and its sequel, which came out in 2017.

… do brain training? My favorite brainhack looks something like this: I go to the cinema (in today's reality, I go to some streaming platform) and choose a film whose name I have never heard, shot by a director unknown to me from a country where I have never been and where they speak in an unfamiliar language. Try it - and you will discover that brave new world.

… to read the book Modern Nature by my friend and teacher Derek Jarman? This is a diary that he began to keep after he publicly announced his diagnosis (in 1988, a British director and artist was one of the first to say that he lives with AIDS. - NB). It contains reflections of a man on the verge of death and short essays on eternal topics. Derek knew how to enjoy life like no one else and knew how to build a garden out of stones. Relevant, isn't it?

… get a dog? When I was 15, I wrote a letter to myself. It ended like this: "I hope you will have a long life in the company of wonderful dogs and loyal friends." Since then, I have tried to surround myself with both. And I still have no doubt that a life in which there is a place for caring for your dear animals and people is the best life.

… to think about how to preserve youth? For example, I am sure that you need to start with nutrition: fresh homemade food does not cause wrinkles. Therefore, I cook for the whole family from scratch - no semi-finished products! Simple country dishes like fish pie, carrot casserole, berry pie and vegetarian stew with vegetables from our garden are especially good for me.

… to reconsider your attitude towards loneliness? To do this will help "Travel to Italy" by Roberto Rossellini - his cinematic reflections on people who are separated or alienated from each other, about their longing and belief in miracles cannot but fascinate.
