It’s not easy when someone we care about gets sick, but a sweet way to help them feel better is to send them get well wishes — it lets them know you're thinking of them.

All we can think about is the mental and physical toll sickness has on our loved ones. The best way to relieve their pain is by showing them that you are there and that you are thinking of them.

Having a friend or family member who is ill can be emotionally draining. Many people say the best way to cope is to do things that put you in good spirits (engaging in social activity, exercise, eat healthily, etc.).

But the truth is, you might find it hard to enjoy the happy moments in life when you know that someone you care about is in pain.

When we are concerned about somebody, the solution is not to focus on ourselves.

It's true that a great way to alleviate stress is to improve your daily habits, but the true solution is to channel all of our sadness and anxiety about the situation into thinking of thoughtful and creative ways to help the person who is sick. True happiness comes from caring for others.

It’s hard in the midst of chaos, but these situations can only be handled in a way that helps both the healthy and sick. One of the biggest problems that arise from a loved one being sick is the loss of practicality. When you become overwhelmed with emotions, you will start to struggle with making choices that will help the overall situation.

If you let your sadness and stress consume you, you will have a hard time being practical, and eventually, you can neglect yourself. This can put you in a situation where you can’t help the person who needs it most.

The worst thing that can happen to someone who is feeling under the weather or who is suffering from some sort of chronic illness or condition is for them to see how their illness has negatively affected those around them. Some people even admit to feeling guilty and resentful from becoming ill in the first place, because they felt like a burden to those people who cared for them.

Even though we all have good intentions, it’s important for everyone to be focused on the person who needs help the most.

This can be avoided by transforming our negative feelings about the situation in a way that is good for you and also empathic for the person who's sick. Dealing with illness a tough situation for everyone to be in, but the last thing you want is the person worrying about is your own emotions. You have to show them that you’ll be there for them no matter what and that you are rooting for them on the sidelines.
