Health Tip: Nurture Your Emotional Health as a Cancer Patient


HealthDay News
Updated: Jan 10th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- If you have cancer, it is important to take care of your emotional health, too, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

A positive outlook has been linked to a lower risk of disease and injury, a better immune system, longer life and greater work productivity, the agency adds.

The CDC offers these suggestions for bolstering your emotional health:

  • Spend time with family and friends, and look for ways to meet new people.
  • Focus on the bright side of any situation, and avoid negative thoughts.
  • Get regular exercise, and eat a healthy diet that includes lots of vegetables and fruits.
  • Do something nice for someone else.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Laugh more. Do things you like.
  • Focus on your spiritual side, whether that means participating in organized religion, meditating, creating art or whatever speaks to you.
