How are you today?
Cancer can often be tiring - both physically and mentally - before, during and after treatment.
And for patients, exercise is likely to be last on the list of appealing activities. According to research, however, physical activity is the best way to combat this common side effect.
But what do you do? How do you cope with cancer-related fatigue? Do you have a particular routine you follow? Is there something you take like a supplement? How do you manage?

@Courtney_J This was a big problem for me personally when I was in treatment but I don't know if I had a routine or anything really official to deal with it. I tried to just listen to my body and give it what it needed when it needed it. So when I was tired, I'd lay down or nap. Not long ones but half hour naps here and there. My doctor told me it was important to try to stay moving so I'd make sure to walk at least 30 minutes every day too. I couldn't really do more than that, just up and down my neighborhood.
