Being Active

During cancer treatment, you may not feel like you have much energy for exercise, but physical activity can have a positive impact on how you are feeling. It can help you manage fatigue, reduce stress, improve your mood, and many other beneficial effects.

 

Physical activity can range from walking and gardening, to exercise classes at the gym. Talk to the team looking after you about what type of activity would be suitable for you.

 

The Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Service has information on physical activity and cancer.
