Being sick is never fun. As you get better, you can begin to feel bored, especially if you have been alone for several days. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways that you can stay busy and help yourself feel better. Check out our list below!

  1. Plan your meals for a week or browse food blogs for easy and healthy meal ideas.
  2. Call your Mom. No one in the world will make you feel better when you’re sick.
  3. Have a go at sudokus or crossword puzzles.
  4. Watch TED – talks or listen to podcasts.
  5. Scrapbook and reminisce by compiling a photo book of the special moments in your life.
