What to do when you are on bed rest, and how to find a great law firm
If you have suffered a serious accident and sustained serious injuries, it is not unlikely that your doctor will put you on bed rest for some time, whilst your injuries heal. Being too active when you have been through a serious accident or sustained a serious injury can slow down the healing process and make it much harder for you to heal fully. You must do as your doctor tells you when you are told to rest, and then find ways in which to amuse yourself so that you don’t become depressed or bored during this time.
- Catch up with friends. Even if you don’t want people to come and visit whilst you are feeling ill and are in pain, you can still use this time to make phone calls, send emails or even letters to people you have not caught up with for a while.
- Practice your skills. Any skills such as languages, writing, drawing and so on are difficult to practice when you are going about a busy day to day life. This is the perfect opportunity to practice old skills or even learn new ones, so that you feel your bed rest has been productive.
- Work. Ask your employer whether they will be happy to let you work from home whilst you are on bed rest, in order to allow you to keep up with your job, make some extra money besides what you would get in sick pay, and make a good impression on your employer as well.
- Rest. Your doctor prescribed bed rest for a reason. Even if you are doing all of these other things, you still need to use the bulk of your day to rest of you will never recover fully. Watch movies, read and so on, and just enjoy the time that you have to do nothing.
