health back and lose the weight I had gained. Here are 5 tips that not only
helped get me back on my feet but also helped me change my life.

all your fruits and vegetables. I heard
this often as a child and it finally sunk in as an adult. Eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day. They are low in calories and will help fill
you up during the day. They also give
you energy, which is helpful if you are suffering from fatigue after Breast
exercise! The more you exercise the
better you will feel about yourself. Exercise is not only good for us physically but is good for us
emotionally. Statistics show that
exercising at least three times a week combined with a low-fat diet will help
prolong your life after Breast Cancer.

with others that are positive, as well. Breast
Cancer can take a huge toll on your self-esteem. Remind yourself that you are a survivor and
you are beautiful the way your are! ! ! Remember, forever young is a state of mind.

enjoy. If you are not happy with your

These tips were designed to
help you look and feel younger after Breast Cancer. If you still feel like you can’t get back on
your feet then you could be suffering from depression or anxiety. It is important you consult with your Doctor
or a Counselor and get the help you need.
