With the current nationwide lockdown, everyone has their unique way of destressing and staying
focused. Given the amount of time that people now have on their hands, it’s best if they spend it
doing something positive that helps them remain happy and composed during these stressful times.
Actress Riya Shukla, aka Pinky from COLORS’ show Naati Pinky ki Lambi Love Story, also feels the
same and urges people to maintain their calm and stay positive through the extended lockdown.
Truth be told, the actor practices what she preaches. As part of her daily morning routine, the
actress spends a few hours refreshing her mind and soul through a dedicated yoga and meditation
session. Known to help destress, meditation is key to peaceful living.
Riya says, “Just like my character Pinky, I too am a very positive person in life. I believe in giving out
good vibes because everyone likes a person with a positive attitude.” And what’s the secret to her
chirpier self? “Yoga and meditation have helped me tremendously. Whenever I am feeling low, I
make it a point to put on some calming music, light some incense and meditate. I lock myself in my
happy place at such times and that gives me a lot of energy to be positive and face obstacles. Yoga is
also very helpful in alleviating stress and has become a part of my daily morning routine now.
Besides, it also keeps you agile and fit!”
