    DO IT FOR YOURSELF

    An increasing body of research literature has shown that psychological states have clear impact on recovery and quality of life in women with breast cancer. Psychosocial variables such as emotional expression, coping styles, and factors related to social support appear to have the most promise for improving quality of life and increasing the probability of prolonged survival.

    Every little bit counts, and every day is another chance to try something new! The smallest of actions, even a 20-30 minute walk, or a few minutes of yoga or pilates poses, done on a regular basis can improve long-term health and wellness!

    The New England Journal Of Medicine published an article illustrating that weight lifting is helpful in reducing Lymphadema. Do it now & ExerThrive!
