Phalia told me that whatever you do during that time counts in years, i.e. for 2 and a third (?) years to come afterwards. I don't know of course if that is a fairy tale. So better do something auspicious and wholesome (but not eating!!) during that time like meditating or so, listening to Vedic chantings or so.
