In the middle of a pandemic and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we hope that you guys are taking care of yourselves. To help keep all of our sixers at their best, we’d like to share some habits you can practice to not only keep yourself healthy, but to also lower your risk of breast cancer.
Moving around helps to regulate your hormone levels, particularly estrogen and insulin, which fuel breast cancer growth. It’s recommended that women aim for between 180-300 minutes of exercise a week. Which 6YCLE classes are your favorite way to keep yourself moving?
Practice healthy eating habits
A diet full of fruits, vegetables and whole grains will keep your body in balance. Limiting your intake of red and processed meats, as well as processed grains and sugars will also keep you healthy.
Limit alcohol intake
Research shows that drinking increases your risk for breast cancer. We know it might be tough to fully cut this out but making decisions to limit your alcohol intake will go a long way in promoting your overall well-being.
We love you guys and hope you continue to take care of yourselves into these winter months. If you’re interested in supporting those suffering from breast cancer, Sixer style, be sure to sign up for Tap Back for TaTas on Saturday, October 10!
