Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure; therefore, a healthy lifestyle should be maintained when fighting this deadly illness. The significance of good nutrition, exercise, and stress-relieving activities cannot be emphasized enough when it comes to managing the effects of cancer and its treatment. Living a healthier lifestyle can even increase the chances of the success of cancer treatments. Additionally, living a healthier lifestyle can contribute to minimizing the side effects that most victims face throughout their cancer journey, including fatigue, nausea, vomiting, stress, anxiety, and depression.
For those facing mesothelioma and lung cancer, embracing a healthy lifestyle is a lifeline to improved quality of life during and after treatment. A cancer diagnosis can provide motivation for patients to prioritize their well-being. However, for some, the commitment to maintaining healthy habits can be daunting. Therefore, it is imperative to rely on a support system to help guide you along the right path to a healthier lifestyle.
Here are five healthy habits that can significantly contribute to your well-being during and after mesothelioma and lung cancer treatment:
Quit Smoking: When you quit smoking, it normalizes blood pressure and heart rate levels. It also reduces the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and high blood pressure. Additionally, quitting smoking will improve the function of the lungs and respiratory system.
Eat Well: Consuming the right foods can make you feel better, boost your strength, and bolster your ability to fight off infections.
Stay Active: Physical activity can help decrease fatigue, enhance mood, and maintain a healthy weight.
Seek Support: In addition to physical health, it is important to maintain a healthy emotional and mental well-being. Consider reaching out to a counselor or connecting with fellow cancer patients who can relate with your experience.
Manage Your Care: Effective cancer care management involves having an advocate who can ensure that your needs are met. One’s journey to a healthier lifestyle during and after cancer treatment is within reach, and the benefits are both tangible and profound. Embracing these habits can lead to a brighter future.
