Your mental and emotional well-being are integral in your overall health. This area is often overlooked especially from surgeons following a breast surgery.
Once the surgery is complete, the primary shift of concern is on your physical healing of your breasts. We will provide tips and practices each day that you can incorporate into your lifestyle for an overall better experience before and after your surgery.
Meditate- find 5-15 minutes each day to practice meditation. Go to a quiet space, close your eyes, find a comfortable position, and clear your mind. Use this time each day for yourself.
“A quiet mind cureth all.”-Robert Burton-
Perform one form of “green exercise.” This simply refers to performing any sort of activity in the presence of nature. You can go for a walk outside, a hike, a bike ride, water flowers, pick flowers, look for birds, watch an outdoor sport, your children or grandchildren, any activity outdoors. “Evidence shows it leads to positive and short and long-term health outcomes.”
“Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.” -Eckhart Tolle-
