Our lifestyle in North America does not leave much space for quiet time. We are constantly striving to get more and more done in our days, weeks, years. Little time is spent in contemplation or down time – time to give our brain a rest and rejuvenate. Cancer is a big wakeup call that says loud and clear – Slow Down, Regroup, Rethink Priorities.
Inspirational gifts for cancer patients – anyone for that matter – can reflect values and thoughts of life lessons such as the poem ‘Quiet Time’ on the pillow (left). These inspirational poems or sayings on everyday items can be subtle reminders to Slow Down, Regroup, Rethink Priorities.
