When Mahesh was diagnosed with diabetes, it came as quite a shock, as he’d always considered himself a healthy person. And as especially after his pacemaker insertion, finding ways to keep moving was important to him. But recently, due to shielding during COVID-19, options seemed limited – or so he thought. Mahesh has been able to rediscover his garden and try new activities from the comfort of his home, which has kept him busy while lifting his spirits at the same time.
How Mahesh Gets Moving
Mahesh has taken up yoga with online workout videos, which he has been enjoying immensely. Yoga is something he’d wanted to try for a while, and the fact that he’s doing it in the comfort of his home frees him from being concerned about messing up or what others might think. As someone who has described himself as being active with “sporadic success,” he will occasionally cycle and go on walks with the family as well. As we come out of lock down, Mahesh is looking forward to things “returning to normal” – but he has been enjoying the chance to try new things and spend time with the people he loves, too.
