Being off work with an illness or injury can be a little boring and it is normal to feel that you are wasting your time sitting around during your recovery. However, it is necessary for you to take the time off that you need to get better after a serious accident or illness. During this time you can use your time off to do things which will improve your life in the long run, such as making accident and injury claims in East Kilbride against the person who caused your accident or illness, amongst other things.
Here are some of the things you should think about doing during your sick leave.
Perhaps you have had enough of your job, or your injury means that you will struggle to go back into this line of work anyway. Alternatively, your injury may have been caused by your employer, meaning that you don’t really want to go back into this job.
You can use your time off to retrain or take a course for a career that is better suited to your abilities following your accident.
Rebuild your strength
Going back to work too quickly will often mean that you go back into a fairly sedentary life, that is too busy to allow you to visit physiotherapists and other specialists who would help you to rebuild your strength.
If you slowly build your strength up using a combination of physiotherapy and gym time, you may find that you end up not only fully recovered, but stronger than ever!
Focus on your emotions
A serious accident is likely to leave you with all kinds of emotions and trauma that you need to deal with before you will be able to get back to your regular day-to-day life.
Ask your doctor to refer you for counselling and take advantage of this as much as you can.
