As caregivers, a lot of times we put ourselves last. Which is just so typical, right? Just like the rest of you, your boobs work hard. Don’t you think that it’s time that you give the girls a little TLC? Working towards optimum breast healthy will not only help prevent cancer but will also improve your overall wellbeing. Here are seven ways to keep the girls happy, healthy, and present.
Exercise It seems pretty obvious, but exercising and maintaining a healthy weight both are huge in the preventing cancer realm. Not only because your overall health will improve, but the fat cells in your breasts also produce estrogen. An excess of this hormone can increase the risk of cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends at least 150 minutes of exercise per week, spread out. Just any form of cardio will suffice. It doesn’t need to be a chore.
Stop smoking Smoking causes an increase risk factor for any cancers as well as lowering the survival rate of breast cancer, so love your body, love your breasts. Extinguish the cancer stick. The elasticity of your breasts will also stop giving out for perkier breasts!
Check, please! The most vital advice we can give you is to set up regular appointments for breast exams (about every three years) up until you hit 40. After 40, set up yearly mammograms. If breast cancer runs in your family, check with your doctor if mammograms should begin earlier. It’s important to know your body and to consult with a doctor if you are worried about an irregular lump or symptom. Touch yourself regularly, no really, it could save your life.
