They say that 1 in 3 people on this planet will be diagnosed with cancer.
You might have loved ones, friends, or acquaintances that have battled with this deadly disease. Some may have lost their lives. Others may still be fighting cancer every single day.
Cancer can take away anyone’s soul, grit, and heart if they let it. It also can transform you into a bolder, stronger, and more beautiful person. It catches most people off guard; once they’re diagnosed, it becomes scramble mode: they have to change their lifestyle dramatically in a short period of time…
That’s DEFINITELY not the easiest thing to do…
So why not try to live that healthy lifestyle today? Why not decrease your risk of getting cancer before it even comes? That sounds like a plan to me!
Here are a few ways you can be proactive against cancer!
Get Regular Check-Ups
You NEED to get check-ups. This is SO important to do.
If you catch cancer early, you greatly increase your chances of putting it into remission. If you feel any unusual symptoms, such as excessive sluggishness, you might want to see a doctor JUST to be sure everything is fine.
Even if you feel fine, there are still routine check-ups you can do to make sure you’re healthy and cancer-free. For instance, breast cancer can be detected through either a mammogram or by checking for lumps around the breast area.
Protect Yourself At All Times!
There are many kinds of cancer—too many to name here. Each comes with its own causes and symptoms…
It doesn’t hurt to take a quick look at your family history to identify the diseases and conditions that could be passed down to you genetically. You might also want to catch anything you do daily that could put you at risk for cancer (like standing too close to the microwave).
Once you’ve done that, make sure you take the proper steps to prevent that cancer from entering your body. For instance, if you’re sensitive to sunlight, layer on the sunscreen to block those rays of sunlight from beating you with radiation.
Although this obviously isn’t 100% foolproof, it could just save your life. Do your research!
Normalize Your Diet/Workout Routine
This might sound silly to you…
Forget cancer for a second: everyone goes through up and down seasons of motivation. Some days, you’re absolutely jazzed to exercise; others, you just want to stay in bed all day…
Same goes for your diet. There are days you might feel like cutting down on the calories. There might also be days when you crave nothing but unhealthy foods…
Think about how draining cancer can be. Those who’ve gone through it before can tell you how much more of your willpower it drains…
The solution? Establish routines!
When you begin to eat healthy and work out on a regular basis, you’re allow your mind and body to adapt to a healthier lifestyle. Soon, being healthy becomes a normal part of your daily life!
That way, when your health gets rocked for whatever reason, you’ll have the habits in place to stay on track and do everything you can to recuperate!
