When we are feeling sick, it always helps to know that somebody cares. We can feel helpless, weak, or even powerless. Sending a Get Well card can show friends, family, clients, or co-workers that you care and you wish them well for their recovery. I remember when my father was ill in the hospital after a stroke. It saddened him that there weren’t many people were reaching out. He received a Get Well card from a co-worker and it lifted his spirits immediately. It really meant a lot to him when certain people reached out. I noticed on days where he had visits or received cards, he would be more willing to do rehabilitation and work towards recovery.
What many people fail to realize is that our mental state can drastically affect our recovery from a physical illness. When our state of mind is calm, stable, and healthy then that can certainly reflect on our bodies. When we get congratulated at work for a job well done, it is great recognition that makes us want to work even harder. When a person receives a Get Well card, it makes them strive to get better and work towards their recovery in a positive way. A good portion of folks recovering from an illness are most likely feeling sad, down, or a little depressed. A Get Well card will surely brighten their day!
The next time a loved one is feeling ill, get them a card and wish them well. You have no idea the positivity and strength you could be giving that person during their struggle. Giving a friend, family member, or co-worker a Get Well card lets them know that you are with them every step of the way on their journey to recovery!
