It takes a special kind of person to move towards danger rather than away from it. These people deserve our endless gratitude: doctors and nurses—whose bravery was especially visible during the COVID-19 pandemic—and the first responders in our country's police and fire departments who show their heroism every day. It's the perfect time to tune in to Paramount+ to celebrate their fictional and fearless counterparts.

1. My Daughter.

Actress Beth Hall poses with her daughter.

I love taking a walk with my daughter, Nina, after dinner, holding her little hand and talking about the day.

2. Uggs.

I could walk all day in my Ugg boots. They are like pillows for my feet.

3. Poker.

There's nothing better than holding pocket aces and flopping the best hand while someone bets into you.

4. Snorkeling in Maui.

Yellow school of fish swim through an undersea rock arch.

The quietness of hearing my own breathing and beauty of the fish and coral was magical.

5. Zumba.

People dancing and exercising in crowded zumba class.

I love Zumba class led by Lata at LA Fitness. It's really hard, but when it's over I feel great!

6. Fitbit.

Sometimes if I haven't quite gotten my 10,000 steps for the day, I just walk around my house in circles until I do it!

7. New York pizza.

On a recent trip back to NYC, I was reminded how good pizza can be.

Favorite place

When my mother retired, she took the whole family to Maui. I remember snorkeling for the first time. It was so quiet under the warm water and so clear. My husband and I held hands while we looked at the fish and coral. It was the most romantic thing we've ever done.

Travel prep

I get an email from Travelzoo quite often that gives their picks for great deals and trips. I love looking through them and imagining I had time to go somewhere!

Hotel amenity indulgence

I always love the idea of room service. It seems so decadent!

Most memorable meal

When I was in my twenties, travelling with a friend in Paris, we stopped at a little cafe in the off hours. All the waiters were eating their meal and I asked them what they were eating. He looked at this American girl with a sneer and pointed to his tongue. To his surprise, I ordered that and it was the most delicious meal I ever had!

Can't leave home without

Books! It's one of the few times I let myself just read for pleasure.

Touristy fun

I guess just taking photos standing in front of landmarks! Yeah, I was there, too!

Next on travel bucket list

Next big trip will be Italy. My husband is Italian and he's never been there. I'd also love to take my daughter on a real African safari when she's a little older.

Mom airs on CBS and CBS All Access.
