This list could go on and on, but these are on my mind now…

1. Listen to Hounds of Love by Kate Bush, the finest record of 1985.

2. Reread A Farewell to Arms, because it’s really that good.

3. Turn off all the lights, set aside an evening, and get to know Bach’s St Matthew Passion.

4. Eat right.

5. Treat yourself to a proper drink.

6. Watch this and this and this.

Then catch up on your sleep and you should be all right.
