1. Watch The Center Will Not Hold.


This gorgeous and critically acclaimed documentary about Joan Didion is inspiring, heartbreaking, and just completely fascinating.

Watch is on Netflix.

Also check out Alias Grace, adapted from the novel by Margaret Atwood.

2. Read Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Fans of How I Met Your Mother and Forgetting Sarah Marshall MUST check out this new sci-fi novel, co-authored by Jason Segel. Otherworld is fun, clever, and super readable – think Michael Crichton meets The Hunger Games.

Get a copy here.

Or enjoy a free classic from the Kindle store – I've been reading Kate Chopin's The Awakening this week.

3. Listen to Where Should We Begin Season 2


The second season of therapist Esther Perel's podcast is part-advice column, part talk show, and is well worth a listen.

Season 1 and season 2 are currently free on Audible.

Or weep your way through Sam Smith's new album.


4. Download Clawbert.

Bow 3 Games

This cute little claw game is perfect for a bit of zoning out to give your brain a break. Collect eggs with some quick toggling and see what you uncover.

Get it for iOS and Android.

Or try your hand at Sonic Forces: Speed Battle.

6. Cook this potato crusted quiche.
