What can help me relax after a cancer diagnosis?

ANSWER

If you're stressed, there are a number of exercises you can try to help you relax. These exercises include special breathing techniques, muscle and mind relaxation, relaxation to music, and biofeedback. First, be sure that you have a quiet, distraction-free location. Try to find a comfortable body position. Sit or recline on a chair or sofa, and do your best to block out worries and troubling thoughts.

There are also relaxation and mindfulness apps that you can get on your phone.
