Self Care During Cancer Treatment

We discuss our strategies and self-care routines through treatment.

  • Yoga, stretching, or biking

  • Gardening

  • Do some art: painting, writing, etc

  • Eat extra well

  • Find your witchy brew: B complex, magnesium, turmeric, activated charcoal, etc

  • Massage, manicure and pedicure (don’t let them cut your cuticles)

  • Get some strengthening nail polish (Leanna’s mom liked the Hard As Nails stuff)

  • Sleep is a big deal--try restricting your sleep hours and only getting in bed when you are ready to fall asleep

  • Look into a digital detox, including social media

  • Be open to taking drugs, and be open to stopping drugs

  • Imagine this as a spa treatment if you can

  • Graciously accept help

  • Do something you’ve never done before
