Let’s get moving together for myeloma! Join us during Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month (March 2022) to start or continue a healthy habit. Our commitment is to become more active by 20 minutes of activity per day with a team goal of 600,000 minutes for the whole month. Stay tuned for our weekly “Tasty Tuesday” recipes, tips for better eating habits, “Fitness Friday” where we will focus on great health tips. Follow along in the HealthTree Moves App for daily tips and tricks to be active. Our focus is on being active where you are in your fitness journey, importance of sleep, hydration and how small changes to your habits can make a difference each day.
Activity comes from anything that gets you moving through your day- walking, cycling, swimming, gardening, yoga, stretching, strength training or walking your stairs. You can break up your active minutes throughout the day if it’s hard to get it all in at once.
Join us on our new HealthTree Moves app to make small but important changes in your life. Download the app in the Apple App Store today or on Google Play.
To add a little incentive to your fitness journey, you could win the following prizes:
Fitness matters to everyone, but it’s especially important for myeloma patients. The more active patients are the more they are able to tolerate therapies, which can lead to lasting outcomes. We hope to encourage both patients and caregivers to join us and build healthier habits. Remember “exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, attitude and mood.” Let’s improve our outcomes, and health while building our Muscles for Myeloma.
