Love Yourself after Breast Cancer
Cancer, in any form, is devastating. Regardless of your age, race or social background, the first step to healing from the inside out is self-love. So many people can tell you look beautiful, but if you can’t look in the mirror and believe it yourself, you’ll never feel it. However, no one tells you how to deal with yourself after you’ve been “cured” …when everyone thinks you’re fine. Truth is, that’s when the hard work begins. Once the parasite is gone and has left behind nothing but devastation, that’s when you have to rebuild yourself from the ground up. From one woman to another, you’re strong enough to do exactly that. You may have been touched by Breast Cancer, but you’re by no means a victim. He may have disfigured you, but you survived, and that’s what’s important.
Once treatment is over, people who have had cancer ofter want to know what they can do to stay healthy. It’s important to realize that people who have had cancer in the past can still have other health problems. Some may even develop other cancers.
Living a healthy lifestyle is important for everyone – whether you’ve had cancer or not.
A healthy lifestyle includes;
- Eat Healthy
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Getting physical activity (exercise)
- Not Smoking
- Limiting Alcohol
