Forgive, Be Thankful and Love

When you view your life, do you focus only on what is wrong or what is missing, or do you see all that is right and all that you have? Do you see your life only with your mind, or also with your heart?

Survivors forgive so they can free their energy to heal. They exude gratitude, taking a moment each day to be thankful for the blessings in their lives. They practice unconditional love.

Nine in 10 cancer survivors regard their spiritual awareness as a contributor to their recovery and well-being. Embracing a loving spirit is a potent medicine itself.

    In 2005, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study on physical activity and survival after a cancer diagnosis. The study found that exercising just one hour per week could lower the risk of recurrence by approximately 20 percent.
