of being encouraged and inspired by what others
are doing, both orthodox and complementary
approaches, and to pick up insights as to how
others are improving their wellbeing.
Avoid negative people:
negative people
will sap your energy, cause stress and lower your
immune system. Conversely, being around positive
people, who make you laugh, feel comfortable and
who care for you, can boost your immune system.
Making time to laugh, even for just 5 minutes a
day, at a comedy film or TV programme that you
like, especially in the company of others, is very
important. Try to avoid negative soap operas and
also the news, which has a strong tendency to focus
on the negative.
Prioritise yoga, meditation, holidays,
prayer or time with children
as this will support
you in connecting with yourself and in getting in
touch with your intuition. Listen to music. It is often
said that music `speaks the unspeakable', a very
true saying. Or you might even want to go beyond
being a passive listener, and take up singing or
playing a new musical instrument, and making
music with others. Singing can be tremendous fun;
your whole body resonates when you sing and it
is a wonderful way to connect with yourself, others
and the world around you. It could be described as
transcendental.
With music, it doesn't matter how much
of a beginner you are. Remember it's the fun and
the connection with yourself and others that are
the key elements, not the skill. The Beatles are
not remembered for their technical prowess as
musicians, but they continue to make people
smile and experience
whenever their songs
are played - me included
- probably more so
than any other band
in the history of music.
Remember, it's about
fun and connection.
To see just how the
universe resonates to
music, put your radio on
outside, and watch and
hear the birds singing
in response; or watch a baby rock and smile widely
if you put them near a source of music.
All the above have the potential to lead to
lower stress, greater empowerment and a hopeful,
forward-looking view of life. These, in turn, result in
increased endorphins which can help to boost your
immune system.
So which of the 7 above habits have you yet to start
on? There's no time like the present, and really no
reason to wait!!
Important Note: None of the advice above
constitutes a treatment for cancer nor should it be
considered as a substitute for any medical treatment.
Dr André Young-Snell is the Founder and Medical
Lead of the Vision of Hope Clinic in Brighton, offering
a broad range of choice to people with cancer.
