When Injury Strikes: Coping When Your Body's Broken And You're Bored


No one likes getting out of bed in the morning. Bed is where we are at our most comfortable; where we relax and drift off, safely cocooned from the world outside. It’s our favourite piece of furniture in the house - well, except for this guy:


Ah, the sofa and a good book - what could be better?

It might sound bizarre, but there is a time in life when the two pieces of furniture above cease to be your best friend. Instead, they become places of boredom, places where you can’t help but daydream about being able to leave. The problem that causes such a turnaround in your thinking?

Injury or illness.

It doesn’t matter how it’s happened. It could have been through working on your fitness, being clumsy, or a nasty encounter with a kerb and a stiletto heel that has meant your ankle is forced to recover with the aid of a ankle distraction strap and no stilettos for six weeks.  Maybe you’re just not well, with a nasty dose of the ‘flu or a virus that doesn’t know when to quit.

Whatever the cause, the end result is the same: you’re hurt, you can’t do anything, and you’re stuck in the same small spaces. The spaces that, most of the time, you would love the idea of being confined to! Then it happens - and you have no chance to break the monotony - and suddenly? You’d rather be anywhere else in the world.

So how do you survive it when the novelty wears off? When everyone else is at work or in another room, and you’re prone in the same position with nothing for company but your own thoughts?

Idea #1: Get Into A Series

You might think this is the perfect time to read a book - and it is. However, it’s an even better time to read a book series. This helps prevent the feeling of finishing a book and then being bored again; you immediately have the next in line to see you through. You could try the A Song of Ice and Fire novels (the basis for Game of Thrones) or just read - or reread - the Harry Potter stories.

Idea #2: Develop A Talent

There are only so many hours you can spend staring at various things - a laptop, your smartphone, a book - before your boredom will begin to creep back in. So put everything down and do something with your hands. You could try painting, making your own jewellery, and a plethora of other activities that don’t require you to be up on your feet and moving around. If you’ve never felt that you’re much of a crafty person before, then this might be the perfect time to unearth that hidden talent - no matter how deep it seems to be buried.

Idea #3: Rehab Yourself

While you may need to rest, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing at all you can do to help yourself along. Make sure you speak to your doctor and see if there are any exercises you can do without putting too much stress on your body. Or search online for exercise you can do while sitting - at the very least, it’s something to keep you distracted for half an hour!

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

    Image by Oliver King via Pexels  CBD oil has gained enormous popularity in the recent past for its incredible health benefits. Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future. Here is all you need to know about CBD oil and the potential benefits you could reap by  using it.  What is CBD Oil?  CBD, which stands for cannabinoids, is a compound found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Black Friday 2021 pe Notino

      Perioada perfecta pentru cumparaturi a venit mai repede luna aceasta,  notino black friday a inceput pe data de 8 Noiembrie si va tine pana in data de 28. Este ocazia perfecta mult asteptata de a cumpara seturi cadou pentru Craciun , parfumul special pe care si-l doreste iubita/sora/mama ta sau pur si simplu atentii pentru cei dragi din viata ta. Eu am facut deja prima comanda pe Notino deoarece am prins reducere de 40% la produsele Dove, produse pe care le folosesc si eu si stiu ca am si prietene care folosesc. Nu le-am luat pentru mine, le-am luat pentru a le face cadou, iubesc sa daruiesc cadouri la fel de mult pe cat iubesc sa le primesc. Tot acum am luat si setul pentru maini de la Baylis & Harding, imi place foarte mult ambalajul, arata luxurios si cred eu ca va fi un cadou dragut. Luna aceasta am 3 aniversari asa ca o sa mai fac cateva comenzi, deja am urmarit reducerile si sunt consistente. Daca imi citesti blogul, stii deja cat imi plac parfumurile si nu cred ca est
