When the pandemic first hit us in March 2020 we never thought it would last more than a few months. It is no into its second year.On May 11 Telugu-Bollywood actress Adah Sharma celebrated her birthday during the pandemic for the second year in a row.
She seems to have accepted the situation for what it is and is determined to make the best of it.
Says Adah, “I spent my birthday at home , with Mum. Of course I missed my friends but I’m zoom calling them.The lockdown is tough. I shared a video on my Instagram on my birthday as a thankyou for all the love I’ve been getting.”
Adah says she has a sizable following on Instagram where she regularly shares fitness secrets . “A lot of people follow me on instagram for fitness related stuff…and I mostly share videos of what I do to keep my body fit.So for my birthday I thought I’d share what I do to keep my mind fit.”
The lockdown has been as tough on Adah as anyone else. But she is making the best of it. “I have more time for the things that I like doing. I played the piano, danced, trained before. So if I had say one hour for piano now I have two. And I can dance for as long as I like. There is no time pressure on my schedules right now. Pandemic or no pandemic I was anyway someone who didn’t really interact much with people. Socializing is not something I am very comfortable with.”
Adah’s eating habits remain unchanged. “I anyway eat a lot, lockdown or no lockdown! Now it’s mostly my own cooking which isn’t great but I still eat a lot. I sleep seven hours anyway so I guess sleeping and eating hasn’t changed.”
Her advice during lockdown? “My advice would be whatever you are doing, even if you are watching a show, or clipping your nails at that time do just that one thing. Train your mind to focus and you will be happiest.”
