Living with a chronic illness is a mighty challenge and while we have good days, the bad days can often come in equal measure. Spoonie Survival Kits help bring some happiness to the day and make a great gift for any loved one that is suffering. There are also many household products that help to manage pain and illness a little, and help you to live a better life. Here’s our round-up:
Enjoy Meals In Comfort
Meal times can sometimes provide respite from chronic illness as our minds are taken away from life’s problems, and we naturally focus more on the food we’re eating. But if taking meals is difficult or you do not have the energy to sit at a table, you may find it easier to eat in bed or from an armchair. When this is the case, a luxury lap tray is both practical and also gives a little comfort and joy.
Pamper Your Feet
The more we are forced to sit or lie down, the less accustomed our feet are to standing and walking. This causes a vicious circle that greatly increases the risk of long-term mobility problems. Giving your feet some love and attention is a good way to potentially reduce pain. Our Deluxe Massage Foot Warmer is like a spa for your feet – but unlike foot spas, you don’t have to worry about splashing water all over the place. The fleece lining, combined with warmers and massagers, will leave your feet happier for hours after.
Give Yourself a Neck and Back Massage
It would be lovely to have somebody on hand to give neck and back massages throughout the day, but this is not usually the case. The next best thing is the Vibration 2-Way Neck and Back Massager that mimics a gentle low-pressure massage. It comes with 14 different massage settings and 4 levels of intensity, so you should be able to find the perfect massage for you.
Lay Back With Your Feet Up
If the neck and back massager is not doing it for you, then why not invest in some real home luxury comfort – a heat and massage recliner. These chairs allow you to recline back and put your feet up at the press of a button, and then once you are in a comfortable position, you can switch on the massage and heat features to give your muscles and bones a thorough pampering. Another great feature these chairs have is that they also help lift you up, so if your arms, wrists, shoulders or back are aching, they will gently lift you up into a standing position.
Whilst none of these will cure chronic pain or chronic fatigue, they can all make pleasant additions to your day and help you to live a happier and better life.
