Do You Think About Cancer Every Day?

For the last seven years as a cancer survivor, I've thought about cancer every day, many times a day. I kept waiting for the day when I'd stop thinking about cancer many times in the course of a day. After seven years, that day has never come. 

When I started asking cancer survivors how often they think about cancer, I discovered I wasn't alone. Most cancer survivors think about their cancer multiple times every day. That's when I began to understand it's not necessarily bad to think about cancer daily, it's what you think and feel as you think about your cancer. I'll give two examples:
1. Person #1 Thinks about cancer daily, wondering if it will return.
2. Person#2  Thinks about cancer daily with a sense of gratitude to be alive another day.

Both folks think about cancer daily with very different results.coping with cancer. I think EVERYONE needs to intentionally find ways to take well deserved breaks. Here's ten ways you can do that.
