Can you tell us anything productive you’ve been doing?

In terms of my productivity, I’ve tried to keep on top of my physical activity, incorporating sustainable yoga practices throughout the week and doing friends’ workouts that they’ve made available via social media platforms - it gets me set up for the day and puts me in a great headspace, even if I don’t necessarily have a lot planned for the rest of the day. My partner runs his own successful photography business, Samuel Black Photography, and we’ve taken it upon ourselves to get me trained up to aid him with the retouching and administrative side of things. It’s been learning a completely new craft which, though daunting at first, has helped me feel useful and productive. Slowly but surely, we’re hoping for it to be a career that I can maintain alongside my acting work when this time eventually passes, and it enables us to keep it in the family persay and it feels me with great admiration for the work he has tirelessly put in for the last few years. I’ve also tried to make sure that I’m singing something every now and again to maintain my craft and playing around with a few things here and there that I’ve procrastinated in doing for a while.
