    Keeping spirits up when my partner is off work injured

    When your partner is off work injured, it can be difficult for both of you. Sometimes, when they’re feeling the physical and mental drain of their condition, it can be difficult for you to take on the additional housework and manage any money troubles, while ensuring that your partner doesn’t become depressed due to the difficulties they are experiencing.

    Whether your partner is off work injured because of a road traffic accident or work-related injury or illness, there are ways that you can lift their spirits to prevent them from falling into a depressive state.

    How to prevent your loved one from feeling low if they’re off work injured

    No matter why your partner is off work injured, even if they have sustained serious work-related or road-accident injuries, there are ways you can inject some normality into their life to help prevent them from feeling low.

    Simple ways to lighten their mood when your partner is off work injured:

    • Encourage your partner to spend time with friends – they may not be able to play sport or hit the town on a Saturday night, but perhaps the local is doable, or even a games night in at home?
    • Talk to your partner about how they’re feeling – don’t downplay their feelings and listen to provide comfort rather than provide solutions. It could be that a car accident, for example, has had a significant effect on their confidence and they just need to talk things through.
    • Suggest a hobby or a pastime – if your partner can’t get out of the house to do what they usually do, it may be time to invest in themselves. Rather than focussing on what can’t be done, look at what can be done. Enjoy reading without time constraints, build models, try candle making. The options are endless and being productive will help self-esteem.
    • Build up body strength – as long as it fits in with doctor’s advice, take time once or twice a week to go for a walk with your partner, get them out of the house and help build up their body strength.
