"Estarás mejor en unos días".

Hola Inma,

Please could you advise me?

When speaking casually as in the conversation here, is it generally more common to use 'estar' than 'sentir' regarding 'to feel'?

Gracias :)

Hola Clara

Yes, using estar would be more colloquial and more idiomatic - it is often used.

No te preocupes, te sentirás mejor en unos días. (slightly more formal)

No te preocupes, estarás mejor en unos días.  (more colloquial)

Remember that we use estar often to refer to physical and state of mind:

- ¿Ya te has recuperado?

- Sí, ya estoy bien, gracias.

- Me preocupa Juan. Siempre está muy nervioso

- Es verdad, y últimamente está peor

Saludos
