We recently asked our online communities to share the different activities they do to help them feel better. Many community members mentioned yoga and other types of exercise as good ways to relieve tension.
Here are the top ten responses we received for relieving tension:
  1. Yoga
  2. Walking
  3. Swimming
  4. Deep belly breathing/meditation
  5. Reading
  6. Writing
  7. Knitting/crafts
  8. Spending time with loved ones/pets
  9. Having a good cry
  10. Laughing/humour
For more information head over to our Living with Cancer publication, where you can find many different suggestions for relieving tension and self-care during treatment (see page 52). 

On December 9, will be hosting a webcast on the topic How understanding your brain can empower your life.
