It’s important to be sure your bed is as comfortable as you can make it. A memory foam or egg create pillow topper will give you both cushioning and support.

Just because you’re confined to bed doesn’t mean you have to be flat on your back (usually). A bed rest pillow is essential for sitting up in bed so you can engage in some normal activities that will help keep you connected and productive.
A bed tray can serve as both your dining table and your work station. You can keep your phone, laptop and other necessary items close at hand. It’s light enough to move when you don’t need it and stable enough to stay on the bed with you, keeping things in reach.
Your computer is often a lifeline while on bed rest. You can work, send and receive e-mails to keep in touch with friends and family, shop, watch TV and videos—your laptop is your window to the world.
A cooler filled with water and snacks can help you feel a bit more independent while you’re confined. Being able to provide for some of your own needs can go a long way to keep your spirits up.
