Despite spending over a week in isolation due to COVID-19, Shaina Magdayao said she’s grateful to have had the pause she “didn’t ask for but apparently needed.”

The actress, who appears to have contracted the virus in early January, reflected on the kind of peace attained through spending time with one’s self via her Instagram page on Tuesday, Jan. 30.


“Trust YOUR process. With isolation, everything you feel will sort itself out,” she said, quoting American author R.M Drake.


“Beautiful words I kept on reading and reminding my frustrated sick self during more than a week of isolation and testing positive,” she stated.

Magdayao also documented how she spent her days in “solitude” by reading books and exercising in an open area in her home.

“Nevertheless, thank you, COVID, for the rest (lots of TV time, too) and pause I did not ask for but apparently needed,” she concluded.
