Do you have a friend or family member who is feeling sick? Try the following steps to make them feel better.
Send this person a card. Make it yourself!Be creative. Convey a message that means a lot to your friend. Remember that this person probably feels pretty miserable, so use bright colors, and try to make the card funny, or at least brighten their day a little.
Help them with some simple tasks, such as their homework, or doing the dishes. Don't make the person feel like you're doing everything for them and they can't cope-just help out here and there, it can go a long way.
Do something to make this person feel physically better. Buy them some nice cough drops, make them a bowl of hot soup, or run them a steamy shower.
Talk to your friend and keep him/her company. Don't keep asking them if they feel okay-just chat to them normally, and make sure they're not lonely or bored. This can also go a long way.
Its not always that good to lie but if it makes someone feel better, go for it. Give them some medicine and be nice, tell them they look fine and do anything they tell you like fluffing pillows, just to be nice and helpful.
Remember how you feel when you're sick, and just try to do anything that you wish someone was doing. Usually this can help them a lot.
Make sure they get plenty of fluids. Offer healthful fluids such as water, tea, and juices.
Ask the person what you can do to help and listen to their answer. Never assume that what you think is helpful is what they will find helpful.
Simply be there for them. Even if they are spluttering and sniffling, give them a clean kleenex and a shoulder to rest their heavy heads on, and they'll not only be thankful, but will be better in no time!
Offer kind, positive words. You might say something along the lines of "Everyone at School/work hopes you feel better soon" or "I'm so sorry that you're sick. School/work isn't the same with out you!"
If they need to vomit rub their back to help bring up their vomit. Some people may hate this, though, so be prepared for them to jerk away or say "No" or "Please stop".
You'll probably get sick from being around that person and their germs.
