There will be times when you don’t feel up to being physically active, or when you need to spend a few days in bed. You still need to keep yourself active. The best way to do this is often to be creative.
- Add notes to your journal. (You DO journal, don’t you?)
- Write a story. You don’t need to be a published author to make up a story about one of the characters you’ve seen that day.
- Try your hand at poetry.
- Make a card for someone.
- Do a crossword, or a jigsaw.
Any productive exercise, even done in bed, will help to keep your spirits up, and keep your mind active.
Another way of passing time in a valuable way is to make use of your cellphone (mobile). Most of them have games that you can download. Get games like Sudoku or some of the many word games available. You can lie in comfort and challenge your mobile without having to entertain or get out of bed! But you’re still exercising your brain. It is surprisingly addictive, and one game will probably not be enough. See if you can beat your previous score!
