During chemotherapy (chemo), stay active and take actions that promote wellness. This can be as simple as committing to a plan of healthy choices:
- Quit smoking
- Cut down on alcohol
- Eat well when your appetite is good
- Take walks whenever possible
- Reduce stress at all times
Schedule in stress-free things you can do with friends when you are feeling up to company. Make sure you get the most out of life when you are feeling well.
