Living well

Living well means more than looking after your health.

It means understanding that there is still life to be lived by finding pleasure in small moments that may or may not be related to cancer. It means looking for peace and acceptance in times of uncertainty. Making each moment of your life count and getting the most from every experience – that’s living well. You prepare for the future and accept what the future brings.

Each person finds their own way to live well. You may choose to take time to be in nature, to meditate or quietly reflect. Others make the most of life with special trips or adventures. You may find that creating art to express who you are is the best way for you to live well.
