How To Get Back On Your Feet After An Illness


If you’ve suffered from an acute illness, you’ll know just how hard it is to get back into the swing of things. Being unwell can be really draining, so it’s important that you take care of yourself and ease back into everyday life.

Take it easy
It takes time to get back to your previous self, and it isn’t going to happen overnight. You’ll have days that you feel fine, and days where you feel like getting out of bed is akin to climbing Everest. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to get back to everything straight away, you don’t want to set your recovery back by overexerting yourself. Take each day as it comes, and don’t expect too much for yourself.

Set goals
If you try to get back to normal in one day, you’ll end up setting your recovery back. Set goals throughout the next weeks or months for where you would like to be, including when you would like to return to work, start up your hobbies, and restart your exercise regime. This gives you something to work towards but you need to make sure the goals you set are realistic. Just remember, if you miss a goal, don’t take it to heart - sometimes your recovery won’t be as slick as you hoped, just move the goal back a short amount of time and keep going.

Consider your treatment plan
Make sure your treatment is working for you. Have regular meetings with health professionals, and make sure you seek a second opinion if you’ve got queries - you know how your body feels better than anyone else. If you have any concerns about the way you’ve been treated, it’s important that you speak to medical malpractice lawyers as soon as you can.

Eat well and exercise lightly
During recovery, it’s important to ensure you’re taking in enough vitamins and minerals, so your body is in as good a condition as possible. Your immune system needs these nutrients to be strong enough to fight bugs, especially as your illness may have compromised this. Make sure you stay hydrated too - you’ll be losing water more quickly if you’re in a warm room a lot.

Get outside
Without pushing yourself too hard, it’s important that you find the time and energy to get outside, even just for a few minutes. The fresh air will help you clear your head, and the light exercise will make you feel more positive and able to take on the challenges you face. Even if it’s just a short walk around the block, it’s better to let your heart rate go up and feel the sun on your skin, than just stay cooped up inside. Only try to do as much as you feel able, though. Don’t push yourself too far. If it’s easier, set up a chair on the porch and rest outside for short periods, taking care to ensure you’re not over exerting yourself.

Just remember, take it easy, don’t rush yourself, but try to keep your body healthy with good food and light exercise, and you’ll make it eventually.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
