After being the victim of an accident in Deganwy, or any serious incident which has left you unable to work, you may be off work for a long period of time. Being off work for a long time helps you to recover more fully, as it gives you the time and space to rest and recuperate and stops you putting any pressure on your injuries.
However, being off work for a long time will also make it tough for you to return to work, as it will feel odd to be back in a daily routine. You may feel a little unsure and uncomfortable at first, which will make it difficult to adapt, but here are some tips for making your first day back at work that much easier on you.
- Make sure that you are ready. Don’t try to get back to work before you actually feel ready. Even if you think that you should be going back to work by now, if you are simply not feeling up to it you shouldn’t waste your energy on trying. If you really aren’t ready it will just force you backwards in your recovery and you could be off for longer.
- Check in regularly. As you prepare to go back to work, stay in touch with your employer and colleagues, so that you can find out what is happening in the company, know about any changes you need to, and keep them up to date with what is happening with you.
- Take it slow. When you do go back to work, you should speak to your employer and ask about coming back part time for the time being, so that you can ease back into work.
- Ask your doctor. You should never go back to work if your doctor doesn’t think that it is a good idea. Ask your doctor for their opinion and advice when it comes to going back, and make sure that you listen.
