For cancer survivors gaining confidence builds better exercise habits. It only makes sense that the more comfortable you are with exercise the more you want to do it. I remember when the thought of exercise paralyzed me with thoughts of I’m too fat, I’m not good enough, what if someone sees me and I can’t keep up. But, thanks to self hypnosis, I lost weight and used hypnosis for exercise motivation to get off the couch. As I coach people living with cancer I teach self hypnosis for exercise confidence and motivation and so that they can boost their immune system, control pain and enhance recovery. Find out how hypnosis for cancer can benefit you.
Confidence Builds Better Exercise Habits for Cancer Survivors
Newswise, March 8, 2013: Endometrial cancer survivors are more likely to complete physical activity, and for longer durations, when their daily self-efficacy is higher.
“Sedentary behavior is associated with increased cancer risk, including endometrial cancer,” said Karen Basen-Engquist, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Behavioral Science at MD Anderson and lead investigator on the study. “When cancer survivors exercise, it not only improves their physical functioning and psychological well-being, but also reduces their risk of developing other types of cancer or other chronic diseases.”
Important findings of the study included the daily effect of self-efficacy on exercise duration. Higher self-efficacy in the morning was associated with significantly more moderate-to vigorous intensity exercise during the day. For every one point increase in self-efficacy, participants increased their exercise routine by six minutes.
Given that exercise is an important aspect of cancer survivorship and endometrial cancer patients are often overweight or obese and physically inactive, Basen-Engquist recommends any exercise, or increase in exercise, would benefit cancer patients and survivors.
Studies are showing that hypnosis is a powerful and effective tool in dealing with the physical symptoms of cancer as well as decreasing need for anesthesia during surgery, alleviating pain, nausea, fatigue and emotional distress. Click here to learn more about hypnosis for cancer.
