Cancer Prevention

Cancer can develop as a combination of lifestyle choices,genetics and environment. Some risks for developing cancer like your family history or contaminants in your environmentare out of your control. Instead, focus on the areas you can control– like your day-to-day habits— to help decrease yourrisk of cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research estimates that 40% of cancer cases are preventable.  

What can I control to reduce my risk?

-Maintain a BMI of 25 or less

-Get up and move for 150 minutes a week

-Make your plate 50% fruits and vegetables, 25% whole grains or beans

-Limit your exposure to toxic substances

-Get Screened - Screening is one of the best ways to detect cancer early, when it is most treatable

Developing willpower

Willpower is noted as a major health barrier. It is often cited as lacking when someone feels they don’t have the energy or drive to do a health behavior. Many think it is something you are either born with or not, but it is actually a cognitive skill that can be developed.

Ways to strengthen willpower

• Identify behaviors that deviate from your health goals and track the thoughts and feelings that accompany them. Self-awarenesscan help you think twice before giving in.

• Meditation practice (sitting quietly for 5 minutes) helps to break impulsive patterns.

• Put your sleep first and consume adequate nutrients at regular meals during the day to avoid crashes that lead to impulsive choices.

• Find simple tasks to commit to: use your non-dominate hand while brushing your teeth, practice communication without using filler words (um, uh, like) or reduce your use of swear words.

Try practicing some of these strategies and be aware of changes to your daily choices and goals. You may be surprised at how great it is to feel the power of will power even if it is related to smaller daily habits.
