    The former actress has always promoted a healthy lifestyle and the importance of taking time for oneself.

    On this subject, she says, “I give myself the luxury of downtime. We are all so incredibly busy and juggling so many things but I always take an hour to just decompress, watch mindless TV, snuggle with my dogs and enjoy a glass of wine. […] That’s all part of the investment. It’s a balance.”

    To make ends meet during this more difficult period, she worked as a freelance calligrapher and taught bookbinding.
