Weekly Round Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and that I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget that if you have written a post that you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

The benefits of physical activity for people who have undergone treatment for breast cancer are numerous, from reducing fatigue to helping regain a sense of well-being. However, as with diet recommendations, it can be confusing when it comes to how much exercise to take and the type of exercise that is safe during and after treatment. Recently, I spoke with Cathy Leman, a registered dietitian, nutrition therapist, personal trainer, and survivor of hormone-positive breast cancer. Cathy shared many helpful tips and strategies for those who may be unsure where to start with an exercise routine after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

Finally, this week, do take time to read the beautiful reflection from Abigail on the ability to hold space. I will leave you with a quote from her post to carry us through another week of community and compassion.

I’ve discovered over the last five (5) years that there is no one true answer for everyone, but we can always lead with compassion, with holding space, with love. At the end of the day, that human connection is truly the only thing that lasts. It’s hard. It’s ambiguous. It’s subjective. It resists measuring.

And yet it is the most vital.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always
