She continues, “During this time, my sugar and glucose levels went haywire. The virus was playing havoc with my metabolic health. Fortunately, it lasted only for a few days before I got a grip on it and changed my nutrition plan accordingly. It was a challenging time because of my existing health condition.”
The actress says that it will still take time to regain her strength. She adds, “I believe in a lot of intuitive living, so if my body is asking for more yoga that’s what I am giving it. Goa is in a state of lockdown, but luckily the beach is open in the mornings. So, I go to the beach and do a light animal flow workout. That helps in waking the body up. The fact that I have been able to survive COVID-19 in itself is a big thing. I am being gentle with my mind and body. It’s a slow, happy, and blessed recovery.”
Staying alone in Goa didn’t make things easier. “Living by myself made the recovery phase a lot more difficult. I didn’t have a support system and so my mind and body were playing games. When your oxygen levels dip, the fact that ‘you are alone’ is the first fear that sets in,” she says.
Besides a surge in the COVID-19 cases in the state, it has also been hit by Cyclone Tauktae. Megha says, “Things are bad. Trees have fallen in my backyard due to extremely strong winds. There is no electricity and no internet connectivity. I have made a list of essential things I may need and I’m rationing them. In the given situation, I have made a note of what I can continue doing for my health and am focusing on that.”
