Following a diagnosis of cancer, getting more active can really make a positive change to your life.
Walking is safe both during and after most types of cancer treatment.
It has lots of benefits including , improving your mental health, reducing body fat, and fatigue, strengthening your bones and increasing cardiovascular circulation,.
Reducing the amount of time spent lounging around at home, resting or sitting can help prevent blood clots, reduce muscle wasting and give you that feel good factor and lift your mood.
So you could start by taking short walks with regular breaks, always walking at your own pace and listening to your body. Then increase gradually over time, setting achievable goals to help you take back control.
Here at Cancer Care Javea we believe so strongly in this activity that we have our dedicated walk support worker Janette who is happy to arrange to meet you for company, confidence or motivation either on a one to one setting or in a group / current COVID restrictions limit this to just 4 at a time with social distancing being observed.
Any amount of movement can be beneficial, but if you have any concerns about joining Janette to walk your way to Health then we ask that you contact the nurse team on 722684093 to discuss and then they can pass your details on to Janette so she can arrange to meet you at a time to suit you both.
So however your life has been affected by cancer – whether you’re being treated, recovering, or have lost a loved one then contact the nurse team now on 722684093 to book your place.
