Pilates and Badminton

Pilgaonkar relied on regular exercise to get through the COVID-19 lockdowns. "I like to do a mix of things to keep fit," she says. "For me, it's not just about physical fitness but mental fitness too that is very crucial to the overall being. During Lockdown, I wanted to make sure that lethargy doesn't kick in so I have been more or less regular about my home workouts. It adds some amount of discipline to my day and routine which I like. Usually, I do a mix of Pilates and functional training. I also play badminton which I love. But now during the lockdown, I have been trying different workouts everyday which breaks the monotony."


Sensible About Diet

Pilgaonkar enjoys whatever she wants in moderation. "I'm a foodie and for me personally, dieting is not about eating less as much as eating at the right time," she says. "It's all about moderation. I find it hard to completely restrict myself from sweets because I love it so much so I'll have dates or things made with jaggery if I want a healthy option. If I want to indulge, I'll go for it but I won't ever overdo it."


Almonds First Thing

Pilgaonkar starts her day with almonds and warm water. "Not only are almonds packed with healthy fats and protein, but they're also rich in antioxidants," says Carrie Madormo, RN. "These plant compounds can protect your cells from oxidation and premature aging. For an antioxidant-rich snack, enjoy a bowl of almonds and berries."


Home Cooking

Pilgaonkar loves to cook her own food. "When we cook at home, we are in control," says dietitian Ben Atkinson. "McDonald's fries have 19 ingredients. We can make them at home with far less — and they will taste just as good. A favorite at my house is potatoes cut into wedges, olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Put these in a Ziploc bag to mix together. Then place in the oven on a pan for about 30 minutes at 400 F. It's only five ingredients, and tastes fabulous."


Focusing On Spiritual Life

Pilgaonkar prioritizes her mental health. "Being mentally healthy is extremely important to me," she says. "It's very easy to feel constant anxiousness but I try to keep myself in check and observe what things might affect me negatively. I think of it as an ongoing journey trying to better myself and not let the world get to me. I have always been spiritual. I pray everyday, it keeps me grounded. It's important as an actor to have something that anchors you because this profession is a rollercoaster where there are ups and downs constantly. So for me the idea of success is deeply rooted in achieving all that I want to without losing my peace of mind and sense of self in the process."
