No one likes being in hospital, and it is likely that you will be dealing with a lot of pain and stress during your time spent there. If you have to go into hospital for an extended period of time, you need to do everything you can to make the experience less traumatic and more fun, so that you can cope with the situation. Here are some tips for coping well when you have to be in hospital for a while.
- Read. Most people have busy lives that make it very difficult to get any reading done. Take all of the books and magazines that have been stacking up and you want to get through, and see this time as a time to catch up with entertaining pursuits that you may have ignored when you were well. Reading also takes you out of the situation in your head, so can be quite therapeutic.
- Play games. Take a smartphone or portable games system with you so that you can play games from your hospital bed. Again, this requires your brain to think in a different way, and takes you out of the situation so that you don’t focus on what is happening in hospital.
- See friends. Get your friends and family to visit as much as they can, and use this time to really reconnect with those you may have lost a little contact with recently.
- Learn a skill. This time is one of the only times when you cannot do anything else, so why not use it to learn a skill you have always wanted to have, but never had time to practice?
