How to Pass the Time During Chemotherapy
5 Relaxing Things You Can Do While You’re Stuck in a Recliner
It can be difficult to relax when you’re heading to your first all-afternoon chemo treatment — especially when you’re not able to bring along a friend or a family member for the company. Unless you find something to do, time can pass slowly. To keep your mind off your treatment while you’re sitting still for a few hours, you have to plan.
When you’re stuck in that big recliner, it can be too easy to think about the woes of settling into the breast cancer lifestyle. Without a plan, you may find yourself fighting breast cancer, anxiety, and boredom at the same time. To keep this from happening to you, Breast Cancer Car Donations has pulled together these ideas on how you can pass the time during chemotherapy.
1. Watch a movie.
By all means, go on a Netflix binge. Line up your favorite flicks and work your way through the whole set. If you need a good laugh, there’s no better time to catch up on the movies you’ve been planning to see. Before you know it, your infusion will be over.
2. Relax while coloring.
Coloring books weren’t just made for kids. One of the best ways to keep your mind and hands busy during chemo is by working on an adult coloring book. The good news is that you can find a slew of options that suit your personality and interest.
3. Crack open a good book.
There’s nothing like losing yourself in a good book while you’re doing chemo. Keep your mind absorbed as you pour through the pages of a true crime, mystery, history, or romance novel. It doesn’t matter if the book you’re reading is on paper, your laptop, or your iPad — any good story won’t fail to take you to a place far, far away from Cancerland.
4. Distract yourself with games and puzzles.
It’s only natural for your mind to drift to the negative while your infusion drips. Thankfully, crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and other puzzle games can give your mind a welcome break.
5. Get crafty.
If you have a chemotherapy port, you won’t have an IV line stuck in your hand. This will make it easy for you to do some crafting during one of the sessions of your mandatory drug experimentation phase. Try knitting, sewing, cross-stitching, or crocheting. You can also choose to spend your infusion time working on scrapbooks or memory albums.
