Cancer Survivors Should Take Steps to Keep Healthy During Holidays
Date:12/23/2011

FRIDAY, Dec. 23 (HealthDay News) -- The holiday season can be especially meaningful for cancer survivors, but they need to take steps to ensure they stay healthy through this often hectic and stressful time.

One in 20 U.S. adults is a cancer survivor and their ranks are growing. Many of these folks have long-term health needs due to the disease and its treatment, experts at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center pointed out in a center news release.

  • Make sure to schedule time with people who mean the most to you. Spending time with those closest to you has a beneficial effect on both the body and brain.
  • Keep physically active during the holidays and all through the year. It's good for your overall health and may even reduce your cancer-related risks.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Focus more on giving your body what it needs (such as fruits and vegetables) and less on trying not to eat certain foods. Eating healthy foods before going to a party will make it easier to resist sweets and other unhealthy foods. Consult a nutritionist if you're not sure what is healthy for you or if you have digestion problems.
  • Avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. Alcohol has been linked with an increased risk of cancer.
  • Find time to relax your body and mind, and tend to your body's needs. If you're having physical problems, make a list and schedule an appoint
