Patience is crucial during stroke recovery because it’s a gradual process that takes time. Rushing or becoming frustrated can hinder progress. Patience allows for proper healing, adaptation, and the gradual improvement of motor skills and cognitive function. It also helps manage the emotional challenges that often accompany stroke recovery, fostering resilience and a positive mindset essential for long-term progress. Also if you have more patience, it allows you to appreciate the time that you have here and to enjoy the present moment more.
