Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

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!
