Tips to Live a Fuller Life for Lung Cancer Patients
Lung cancer affects millions of Americans. It is a widespread fact that smoking cigarettes and tobaccos cause 80% of all lung cancer deaths. Other lung cancer patients are those exposed to secondhand smoke and asbestos. Genetics can also play a big role even if the patient is not a smoker. With the disease that has hit you or your loved one, it is important to still have quality of living. Here are some tips to make the most out of life whether or not you will beat cancer:
- Continue doing what you love to do.If you’re not strapped to the hospital bed and can still freely do physical activities, go on and do what you love doing. Just live. Because who knows today may be your last? If you love painting or performing spoken poetry, do so. If you love cooking for your family, do so. If you love golfing out under the sun, do so. Don’t let cancer beat you.
- Eat right and don’t starve yourself.Having cancer and chemotherapy sessions will leave you weak because of all the chemicals and sessions. Make sure you have stored fat and energy to keep you going. Eat healthy food and have the food you like.
- Reconnect with friends and family.If you haven’t been talking much because of your illness, make sure you make at least one call today to just catch up with a close friend or relative. You don’t have to be alone in your situation. People will care for you. If you are still able, make sure you have some coffee or brunch with them for a little chat. Reminisce and take your time to share what you know.
