It’s August, and time for summary of the past month's ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ tips. I’ve been spoilt for choice the past month of so, as is always the case, so I’ve thrown in few extra tips that have been shared on the Community.
“…whatever happens, make the most of every day. Find something every day that makes you smile, fill your time with fun and laughter and create many amazing memories with your son. Not because you have cancer but because you can.” (Daisydoo38)
“But to all those struggling with life please be kind to yourself and remember you are never truly alone.” (Summerleaze)
“The key piece of advice I wish I had followed was simply to stay off Doctor Google, it won’t help. It’s beatable, people beat this all the time and you could be one of them.” (Garyb)
“Take a deep breath and calm down. You have had an awful shock and need to give yourself time to let all that sink in. You still have hope and a life to live.” (Alive)
“Stay in the day and find something to enjoy each day. It can be as simple as a cuddle or a cup of tea or a beautiful flower. Sweat the small stuff. Say yes when people offer help.” (Daloni)
“My advice is to let your fears out of your head and into the open, they have less power when spoken out loud, take counselling if you think you need it or share your thoughts here, you won't be judged no matter what you say.” (Johnty)
“You only have one life and no one (cancer or not) knows when their time is up so make the most of every day, find something to smile about every day, do all those things you want to do and spend time with the people you want to.” (Daisydoo38)
