When you’re stuck at home and feeling miserably sick, there’s no one that will be there for you quite like your mattress. And sometimes it may take hours and hours of sleep for you to start feeling like yourself again. But, when you’re on the cusp of feeling pretty good, but still not completely 100 percent, that’s when the boredom starts to take hold. Lying in bed, just waiting to get better, can feel like a lifetime of wasting away.
The only way to get through this awkward healing process is a supportive mattress and a couple fun distractions. Luckily, you can find the right bed for you and your sick days at our store! And when you’re struggling to get well soon, try out these fun ideas to keep you company during your bed-ridden time.
1. Watch a Movie Trilogy
If there’s a movie series that you’ve missed out on in your life, there is really no better time to catch up than when you’re sick in bed. Not only will you be entertained for hours, you’ll never have to hear your friends’ shocked and disappointed comments, “You’ve NEVER seen THIS amazing film in your life?!? Have you been living under a rock this whole time?” Avoid another one of these awkward encounters by getting started on your trilogy watching journey when you’re sick.
A few good films that could be viewed during your sick time include “Back to the Future,” “Lord of the Rings,” “The Matrix,” “The Hunger Games,” or “The GodFather.” But, if you’re looking for something a little lighter on the action and drama, you can always watch “Toy Story” 1-3, or even the ridiculous yet loveable “Austin Powers” trilogy.
No matter what you watch, you'll want to be comfortable, so find a mattress from our store to make your tv watching experience the comfiest it can be.
2. Color Your Heart Out
Whoever says coloring is for little kids has never colored a coloring book for adults. These intricate coloring books were made for grown-ups looking for a creative outlet, and even for those coping with stress.
All you need for this little project is a coloring book and some colored pencils, crayons, or vibrant permanent markers. One of our firm mattresses would be perfect for this occasion! Be warned though, these coloring books aren’t always easy! They are made to take some time to finish, so get cozy in your mattress and have some fun!
3. Plan an Event
Be productive during your time in bed and plan a fun event for when you get better! Have you been wanting to take a road trip? Now’s the time to do the research and figure out the financials! Maybe you’ve been wanting to throw a birthday party for yourself in a couple months. Now’s the time to get a theme set and start building around that. With an adjustable mattress from our store, you'll be able to sit up in bed and plan away all the details to your next event with comfort.
It’s up to you how elaborate you want to plan but sitting in bed with nothing to do is the perfect time to pull your ideas together and come up with something exciting.
When you’re fighting a cold, there’s not really much that you want other than a bed that comforts you. If your mattress is doing more hurting than comforting, come on down to our store to find the one that will be perfect for those sick days in bed. And when that’s all said and done, be sure to try out one or all of these ideas to help keep you occupied during your best rest.
