Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise is good for every body, but especially helpful when recovering from cancer. 

Taking it easy, most patients are able to get aerobic exercise even during treatment with a daily walk, and continued exercise can speed up recovery after treatment.  Making sure you get up and moving not only helps you survive, but improves your quality of life.

Aerobic exercise is linked to improved survival, but daily life feels better, and it can have a tremendous impact on your mood.  Cancer can take a toll on you physically and emotionally, and aerobic exercise directly counters those side effects.

Cancer fatigue is real.  If you don't feel up to a long, sustained 20-30 minute aerobic workout, break it up into two or three 10 minute workouts.  Or a morning and afternoon walk.  Or put on some fun music and dance to a couple of songs.  It all counts, as long as you get your blood moving - have fun with it!!
