GRACE is excited to bring to you more in our new series on surviving with cancer
GRACE is excited to bring to you more in our series on surviving with cancer. Our friend and partner, Raquel Jex Forsgren is the founder of Living Yoga Therapy based in Chicago and is a certified oncology yoga therapist and resiliency coach. She brings us tips and techniques for those dealing with cancer.
In this partnership, Raquel is providing GRACE with helpful videos targeted specifically for the Lung Cancer community. These free resources are available through GRACE for those living with lung cancer and for caregivers as well.
In this video, Raquel discusses Deep Breathing, an essential tool for all of us to practice to reduce daily anxiety and reduce stress. It’s even more important for people with serious lung diseases such as COPD or Lung Cancer. Pulmonary experts recommend this practice. This can be done anytime you may be feeling anxiety or if you feel a sense of panic if you aren’t able to catch your breath or have shortness of breath. Practicing it 4-5 times a day or more will greatly improve your ability to remain calm while managing your disease.
