I wanted to make a card to share with David's article, so I made use of the Color Throwdown's first challenge of the year. Bar's color choice was perfect for my card:
ribbon awareness color for Mesothelioma is pearl. I used some satin white ribbon to depict pearl, and recolored my MTME Amour paper (swapped pink with gray) to follow the palette ;] My layout was inspired by the Mojo Monday challenge (MOJO222).
If you already have a fitness routine when you are diagnosed with cancer, it can be beneficial to continue with it. However, you should adjust your exercise routine to ensure that you do not overexert yourself during treatments. Cancer changes your body. While you are undergoing cancer treatments, your doctor may recommend that you decrease the intensity of your workouts, as well as tailor your fitness routine to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefits, and not hurting yourself.
Maintaining an exercise routine while you have cancer and after you have cancer can help you in a variety of ways. Exercise can help you maintain your weight, as well as keep your bones, joints, and muscles healthy. Exercise also helps with your mental well-being. Having a healthy mental well-being while you have cancer is vital to getting better. When you feel good about yourself and know you are keeping your body healthy, it can boost your mood.
After you go through cancer, you need to slowly build your health back up. Exercise is an ideal way to help build up your health because you can tailor exercise routines. For example, you can slowly build up how much rigorous activity you do as you start to feel better. Typically, adults need to exercise at least five days a week for 30 minutes a day. However, as you go through cancer or build yourself up after cancer, you can tailor this amount of exercise to fit your needs.
While studies are not conclusive, research has indicated that people who have a regular exercise routine have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancer.
When your doctor gives you a cancer diagnosis, it does not matter what type of cancer it is. Whether it is breast cancer or mesothelioma, the news is always devastating. However, when you keep yourself active, it can help you overcome the obstacle of cancer.
Thanks for letting me share my card and David's important message. I hope you found it enlightening.
