MIND BEN­DERS

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

One in two Aus­tralians will be di­ag­nosed with can­cer by the age of 85, so pulling out all the stops to try to pre­vent it should be top of our list. One area of preven­tion that is of­ten overlooked is emo­tional health. Stress has been linked with can­cer de­vel­op­ment so emo­tional well­be­ing should be part of any preven­tion pro­gramme. Here are five tips to get you started: »

Look for your strengths – fo­cus and ex­pand them. »

Be op­ti­mistic – even when it’s painfully dif­fi­cult. »

Find your pur­pose and fol­low it – keep a jour­nal. »

Prac­tise grat­i­tude – it causes a pos­i­tive chem­i­cal re­ac­tion in­side you. »

Re­move toxic peo­ple from your life – yes, all of them!
