Exercise & Relaxation
- Exercise. This was also very hard for me. I am the queen of buying exercise DVD’s and the laziest when it comes to using them. I had started doing Zumba when I was diagnosed. After my surgery, I started walking and now really enjoy that. Find something you like and stick with it. I try to walk 2 miles/day at least 5 days a week. I am still working on this goal, but I know I need to.
- Use relaxation techniques. I downloaded Bellaruth Naspare’s cancer meditation.There are many such products on the market. I bought myself an IPOD NANO and use it when I walk.
