When the new year is approaching, many of us start to think about resolutions: everything from losing weight, to exercising, to eating healthier…you name it. But by February…or in some cases, mid-January, we’re pretty much over keeping them.
We’d like to suggest a new approach to the new year: how about adopting a healthier lifestyle, one step at a time? A gradual approach to a healthier way of living can be more successful.
In 2017, we shared some tips and tools to help you incorporate wellness into your life.
No doubt about it, the holiday season can be a fun and joyful time of year, but it can also pose its own special challenges. Parties and get-togethers, shopping, traveling to visit friends and relatives – you name it – the list goes on and on. Combine those busy days with cancer treatments, and that can lead to exhaustion and stress, making it more difficult to get the rest your body needs to heal.
Many of us have certain expectations for how the holidays should play out, according to Dana Nolan from The Mesothelioma Center.
No doubt you’ve heard the phrase, ‘attitude is everything.’ At Cancer Recovery Foundation (CRF), we believe attitude is an integral part of healing from cancer. CRF is rooted in the belief that surviving cancer requires caring for the whole person.
CRF's research has shown survivors believe in a true mind/body connection; they believe their role in their recovery process is of primary importance. Eight out of 10 survivors believe their personal self-help efforts were responsible for most of their successful recovery from cancer.
