Shannen Doherty Is Dancing Away!

So impressive. I often feel like bypassing the gym and heading for the takeout place after work. Yet, I’m always happier if I don’t punk out. That Shannen maintains that discipline after chemo is amazing and it shows us the power of physical movement. She wouldn’t do it if it did not make her feel better after all. Another important aspect of her engaging in some activity is that it puts her in control. Numerous scientific studies inform us that nourishing patient’s strengths and experiences is important to their outcomes. Here is one such study example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21558850

Patients’ own strengths (physical and otherwise) are a crucial factor to get through their illness. Hats off to Shannen and we will her a speedy recovery!
