Great Cancer Forum Offers Advice for Reducing Stress
One of the things that people going through cancer tell me is that their stress levels are sky high. And no wonder – between the diagnosis no one wants to get, the treatments that you need to find time for, and the side effects of said treatments, stress levels go right through the roof.
The American Cancer Society has a great forum you can join – it’s called What Next – and they really do a great job of helping cancer patients deal with all of the things that happen to them.
I’m a member of What Next and I’m really impressed by the quality of answers people receive when they ask questions, it’s a really helpful resource for the newly diagnosed. It’s also a great place to offer help if you’re community minded. Got a question? Just post it and see what follows – it might not be immediate, but you will get answers.
They recently posted an article titled Reducing Stress From Your Life written by Rob Harris, founder of RobCares.com, a website written for caregivers. I loved what he had to say about stress, and the five tips he gives to reduce your stress levels. Please read the article, especially if you’re going through a stressful time. It’s excellent advice.
