Recovering from a traumatic brain injury can be extremely difficult. Not only have you gone through the process of being physically injured, you have to deal with how to pay for your injury, the psychological implications of post-injury stress and anxiety, and how to transition back to your normal life.
It may take months, even years to be able to get back to your normal routine, and it cannot be expected that your mood, or morale will be the same as it was for quite some time. Many recovering patients must spend whole weeks trapped in a room with nothing to do. There are a number of positive things you can try to boost your mood on the road to recovery. There are some ideas that have worked for others listed below.
Recovery Activities That Can Help Boost Your Morale
- Yoga and meditation: Hard physical activities will be off limits for many recovering patients at first. One of the lighter physical activities known for creating inner-peace, heightened mood, and wellbeing is yoga. Meditation and relaxation techniques are also a great way to find a better mood.
- Brain exercises: Drawing, practicing listening to people and taking notes, crosswords, and reading are good activities to improve your brain function.
