We all have medical needs and emergencies throughout our lives. Some of us hardly step into an hospital, and some of us, sadly, live there; not by choice, but by necessity. Not meaning to begin on a sad note, but most of us are often in need of a cure for various concerns.
Some of us need an immediate physical cure, some need a mental cure, some, spiritual cure, and some even need a cure for pure boredom. Whatever may be the cause of anything that’s bothersome, it all, eventually but definitely has a cure. A solution to every problem.
Read on to know how emojis can be helpful while preaching and practicing the right cure for any condition.
Kickstarting with the most instantaneous of all cures, the mighty pill, also known as tablets, medication, or meds, or even the happy pill.
Irrespective of their form and size, they always seem to work. They’re powerful both in the cure and the side effects. Nonetheless, they aid towards more favorable physical, mental, or psychological comfort zones.
But kids, always remember, never do drugs.
A syringe emoji-fies the phrase desperate times, desperate measures. No one would willingly take an injection shot unless it’s absolutely necessary to serve the cause (tattoos are different, okay?)
Syringes are the faster cure compared to pills. We don’t have to wait hours for the medicine to kick in, we just have to sit there, clenching our butts and dying to be done with the dose. However, they work like magic.
A bandage is the medical version of a “quick fix”. These adhesive tapes are generally just first-aids, and nothing more, and they can also be generalized to other forms of bandages as well.
On the other hand, 🩹 is quite a metaphorical emoji. It signifies the need for quick fixes while speaking about the depth of the wound it’s fixing at the same time (okay, but let’s keep deep talk for another time).
Whoa, whoa, whoa. What’s happening here?
Fret not, my friend. Sorry to have offended you if you are not a chocoholic. But to the addicts out there, 🍫 is undoubtedly an item on our “cure list”.
🍫 is not only a sweet anti-depressant, it’s an aphrodisiac as well. So, are we sailing on two boats, right now? Maybe. Does it feel good? Hell, yes!
If you’re one with a sweet tooth, you’d agree if we said all things sweet are one hundred percent a cure for cravings and for bad endings. Don’t worry, 🍦 is all ice cream, and nothing sugar-coated.
Drinking can be sinful. Overdoing it can be worse. But, we alcoholics on the other side of the story would like to believe not drinking to be a sin.
It’s okay to have different coping mechanisms. Some prefer a nap, some walkout for fresh air, and some of us, need wine (or anything even morbidly alcoholic) to sober up. Nothing wrong with admitting to facts.
🍷 helps cure the temporary sense of meaninglessness.
(yikes, did not intend to switch to that level, but it do be like that)
You can see where this is going already.
The tougher the pain the tougher the cure, man.
But, yes, a little whiskey on the rocks always helps get past a rocky relationship, sustain an unstable situation, or even be patient with an inconsistent job scene (and they call people to be drunks, smh).
But always remember, kids. Drinking is dangerous. It’s only when you’re an adult are you ready to take the risk.
Now, here’s something we can all agree on. Music is by far the most immediate and the safest cure to the things we cannot silence in our heads, the people we cannot change, and the circumstances we cannot win.
And one good thing is that, when music finally hits you, it never hurts. And that’s exactly what a glimpse of healing looks like. 🎶 is a partner through it all.
If you’re an aquatic soul who was growing uncomfortable with the amount of content that did not relate to you, here is your vibe.
🏊 Swimming, 🤿 Diving, 🏄 Surfing, and anything to do with water and mindlessly jumping into a pool of it is an effective mode of relaxation. Thus bringing a temporary but great cure to a lot of things.
Communication is key! in this case, it’s a possible cure.
Talking to a trusted person is proven to have a calming and reassuring effect on distress relating to anything from finances, to relationships, and health as well.
So, it doesn’t matter if you’re the digital kind 📱 or the 📞 old school propagator, talking to someone, always helps. This applies even to listening and hearing someone out.
If you’re a writer, this one’s exclusively for you. And if you’re not, here’s an idea that can have an incredible amount of healing powers. It doesn’t matter what you write for this method to work, as long as it’s the truth.
Simply 🖊️ Penning down your thoughts, asserting your raw and real thoughts, ideas, decisions, or even scribbling pent-up emotions is a thousand percent effective when it comes to self-healing and self-love.
Who wouldn’t agree that a long shower or hanging out in a bathtub with some candles and a glass of wine (see, 🍷 makes a second appearance) is relaxing?
We all love being a little laidback once in a while. It calms us and strangely, grounds us too. And 🛀 represents just that, a wonderful way of slowing down every now and then.
Hmm. A soap. Could this be some sort of cure for a smelly body?
Yes, 🧼 is a cure, but not bodies, in fact, this emoji speaks fluent sarcasm. It refers to a “cure” for filthy thinking, unclean intentions, and anything disgusting and unsettling.
- Ew. How could you think like that? Here 🧼 please bleach thy filthy mind until it’s sparkly white.
🧘 is more than just a yogic posture. It is one of the most applied postures during meditation. The practice of being meditative also makes for a great cure against irritability, anxiousness, and anything that is overwhelming; both the good and the bad.
We’re all on the go, pretty much all the time. Eat, hustle, repeat seems to be the mantra. And through this constant pursuit of happiness, we forget to pause and be truly happy with literally nothing but ourselves.
If you were wondering how a mere button could be a “cure” to anything, try pressing the ⏸️ in your lives. Pause anything that you’re doing right now, and instead of doing anything something or putting that much-priced ‘effort’ into things, just be.
If it worked, ⏸️ is an amazing addition to the list!
The present digital era we’re in not only revolutionized our approach to and consumption of information, but it has also occupied a well-guarded seat in our lives, mentally and physically.
Sometimes, switching off from social media or the internet at large can work its wonders. 📴 could also symbolize logging out of your internet accounts alongside actually turning off your phone or silencing it.
A little detox goes a long way.
Seeking and questioning is the cure for a curious mind. If you’re feeling unsettled about anything; mixed signals, red flags, rough patches, etc., it’s always empowering to ask the right questions.
These curtains of ego and pride has held us back for a long time. Open them, and question everything that sparks your curiosity so that, you could have some amount of peace and closure at least then.
Human health concerns range wider than just physical casualties. We may be physical beings, but we’re also an evolved and evolving species capable of many complex issues pertaining to our mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual presence as well.
We hope this list of cures covered most of the sources and journeys of these casualties; big, small, tangible, and intangible.
