There seem to have been lots of headlines in the news lately about the positive impact that exercise can bring, especially when it comes to reducing cancer’s side effects.
The Mirror recently featured a study on how yoga can help cancer patients sleep better and, as a result, experience less fatigue.
Our very own Nurse Jean commented on this story:
“Fatigue is a problem for many cancer survivors and it can be difficult to know how best to help because it affects people differently and there are few really effective things people can do. Research like this is important and may help health professionals assist survivors and improve their quality of life.”
We often see people chatting here on the forum about just how tired treatment has made them, and sharing tips on how to cope.
Have you tried yoga, or another gentle form of exercise, to help combat fatigue? We’d be really interested to hear your thoughts on this!
