National Cancer Survivors Day on June 6th: 4 Tips for Cancer Survivors to Stay Healthy
Watch Your Health While Celebrating Your Victory
Cancer is one of the world’s deadliest diseases, but a large number of patients have fully recovered from it. Statistics show that in the United States alone, there were about 16.9 million cancer survivors as of January 2019. Perhaps you or someone you know have faced and conquered a cancer diagnosis.
Although full recovery is certainly a cause for celebration, this doesn’t necessarily signal an end to taking precautions against threats to one’s health. Cancer survivors need to do everything they can to safeguard their health. In observance of National Cancer Survivors Day on June 6th, take this opportunity to think about what you can do to stay healthy as a cancer survivor.
How Can Cancer Survivors Safeguard Their Health?
Every cancer survivor is more than eager to return to good health. However, enjoying the years ahead will require you to make certain lifestyle changes. Breast Cancer Car Donations has pulled together these tips to improve your long-term health.
1. Eat a healthy diet.
Whether your weight has gone down or increased during your treatment, you’ll have to consult your doctor to get it to the ideal level. One of the best ways to achieve and maintain a healthy weight is to watch what you’re eating. Don’t forget to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It’s also best to avoid processed meat, red meat, high-fat dairy products, fried foods, and sweets.
2. Move your body.
Besides improving your mood, boosting your self-confidence, and reducing fatigue, regular physical exercise can also help keep cancer from returning. However, before starting a moderate to a vigorous exercise program, be sure to speak with your doctor. The most common types of exercise that can help you get back in shape include aerobic exercise, flexibility exercise, and resistance training.
3. Get good sleep.
Building a pre-sleep schedule that can help you lull yourself to a calm state is extremely important. If you’re getting ready for bed, try dimming the light in the room and turning off electronic screens. Keep in mind that your body needs rest and rejuvenation. For this reason, you need to make sure that you get good sleep.
4. Keep your emotions in check.
Since a healthy body goes hand in hand with a healthy mind, be sure to work hard on staying positive. Going back to your normal life after coming out of cancer may take time. If you find yourself sinking into melancholy, don’t hesitate to speak to a friend or a professional.
