Keep Your Breasts Healthy By Improving Your Lifestyle and Making Time for Pleasure
While genetics and family history can play a role in the diagnosis of breast cancer, there is also evidence that supports the importance of frequent self care and a healthy lifestyle.
Self care isn’t just about diet and exercise, although that is part of it. Self care is about nurturing and giving to oneself physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.
Women often feel that taking care of themselves is selfish. It’s not, it’s actually selfless – When you practice self care you reduce your risk of getting sick and you can be there for the people who need you.
Often the women who can be most at risk for developing breast cancer are those who have a hard time taking care of themselves and receiving pleasure in their lives.
Learn the Importance of Self Care for Breast Health
We’ve all heard the saying, “you can’t give what you don’t have.” If a women doesn’t feel loved, appreciated, worthy, and accepted by herself and for herself, eventually she will not be able to give such things to others.
With all the giving that women do, it is important that we feel fulfilled and experience pleasure on an ongoing basis. It is even more important that we don’t depend solely on other people for getting the love and fulfilment we need.
Women must learn to nurture and love themselves first. This also means learning how to ask for / receive help and making time for pleasure.
Learn How To Experience Pleasure – Your Breasts Will Thank You!
Humans were designed to experience pleasure.
Pleasure isn’t just sex, although that is definitely one of the ways we can have pleasure, but pleasure is also so much more than sex.
Pleasure is the way a decadent piece of chocolate melts in your mouth. It is the way a sunrise and make you feel alive and well. It’s a walk in fresh air surrounded by nature. It’s the way a child can melt your heart when they tell you they love you.
Our culture has made “being busy” a status symbol. It has lost touch with the importance of taking time and effort to nurture the body and soul.
Women who know how to love themselves have some of the most pleasurable lives around. They see the value in themselves, they feed their minds with positive thoughts, they give their bodies relaxing and sensual experiences which develops self love and confidence and then they attract love and confidence in all areas of life.
Every emotion a person has is connected to a biochemical process in the body, so, which is better for longterm health? A person who has stress, drama, and negativity in their life? Or a person who makes choices to include and create positive thoughts, words, and situations in their life?
Life isn’t always a walk in the park, there are challenges, but a lot can be done to improve the thoughts, feelings, and perspectives that we hold.
There is another popular saying by Charles R. Swindoll which says “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
