Cancer Truth Note: #172
One of the biggest lessons I learned during my recent long recovery was how tied my physical wellbeing and mental wellbeing are.
Getting outside and walking with my dogs and getting my own exercise in is a huge part of managing my mental wellbeing.
Also, activities like knitting are good for both my brain health and my physical wellbeing. I did quite a lot of knitting during my recovery. I always find when I make time to do a bit of knitting everyday it lowers my heart rate and calms my mind.
Do you have any activities that boost your wellbeing that may need to be prioritized?
