Calming Calendula & Green Tea

During my breast cancer journey I found the following things kept me afloat each day and helped me to cope with my cancer diagnosis and the anxiety and stress that accompany ongoing treatments. I hope you will also find them helpful.

  1. Exercise daily (atleast 150 minutes/week) - do something that brings you JOY!
  2. Pray, express gratitude and rest
  3. Listen to uplifting music, podcasts, videos that inspire you
  4. Eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily for cancer preventing fiber and immunity boosting antioxidants
  5. Drink soothing teas throughout the day, switching to herbal in the afternoon
  6. Consult an Oncology Nutritionist to ensure your diet meets your nutritional needs
  7. Download a mobile app that helps alleviate stress and anxiety
  8. Try something NEW
  9. Make a plan to do something you have always wanted to do, even if it's absolutely nothing
  10. Share a laugh or compliment with anyone you meet and receive help when its' offered.  

Be well,
