If you have to take sick leave then it is not expected that this will be the most exciting time of your life. You are unlikely to be signed off of work by a doctor unless you are legitimately ill enough to not go to work, meaning that you won’t be having much fun or enjoying your time off like a holiday. However, there is no reason that an extended period of sick leave couldn’t be productive, even if it can’t be fun. If you don’t want to waste this time off simply laying around, and want to get things done in the meantime, here are some ways to do this.
- See friends and family. Use your time off work to see more of your friends and family, in particular the ones you never have a chance to see when you are busy with work and other commitments. It is important to stay positive whilst you are recovering, and this should really help you.
- Rest. Sick leave is there for you to recover from any illness or injury you are suffering from so the most important thing you can do on sick leave is to get as much rest as possible. The aim is to feel completely rested and rejuvenated when you return.
- Read up on your condition. Finding out more about what you are suffering from will help you to work out new and better ways to heal quickly, and keep yourself in good condition. Use this time to research ways of getting better.
- See a counsellor. If your sick leave is because of a traumatic event, you should take this time to seek counselling and help to get your mental state back on track, long before you need to return to an office environment.
