Pulling out all the stops to try to prevent cancer should be top of our health priority 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 on them and expand them.
Strive to be optimistic – even when it feels 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!
