Using journaling to combat the woes of cancer through positive reflections may just bring you more joy to fight against cancer. Positive Thinking: Positivity is contagious and necessary for your brain to work on your behalf when dealing with sickness.

Word of Encouragement: We all need encouragement especially during a long fight with cancer. Capturing these necessary words when we get them or think of them, can be just the healing balm your souls needs to never give up. I’m Thankful: Being thankful for the little things in life can have a wonderful effect on your outlook of life. This one activity forces us to stop and look for the good things amidst the harsh conditions of cancer.
