Health and Wellbeing

If you’re living with cancer, eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise may seem like the least of your worries. But looking after yourself at this time is more important than ever – especially during coronavirus – to feel as well as possible during treatment, recover more quickly, and feel good about yourself.

Eat well There are lots of services out there that will help you discover nutrition-packed meals

Stay active Find things you enjoy that also help you feel energised, such as weekly walks with a friend or check out activity-based cancer support services

Protect yourself Some cancer treatments affect your immunity so you need to be especially careful with coronavirus around. Find ways to stay safe while not becoming cut off

Nourish your body and mind Eat well, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep – but also make sure you get enough of the things in life that give you pleasure, from seeing friends to favourite treats

Feel good about yourself From wig fitting to ‘look good, feel better’ or ‘health and wellbeing’ programmes, find services to help you feel good inside and out
