    Tips for Getting Through Bed Rest continued...

    Eat well. Aim for a well-balanced diet with lots of fiber, and drink plenty of water. You'll lower the risk of constipation.

    Let people help. It may be hard to ask for help, but you must. If friends or family members ask how they can help, offer specifics. Have them pick up groceries or take your turn in carpool.

    Learn something new. Start learning a new language, take a correspondence class, watch YouTube videos on how to draw or learn how to knit.
