On good days use your energy to do something you love.  For many people gardening is relaxing and enjoyable. If your love is gardening it is a great way to get outside for some fresh air and exercise. Be sure you are aware of those days after chemo treatment when your immune system is down and you are at the greatest risk for infection so consider avoiding gardening during this period.

The Spring weather is warmer so remember the sunscreen and a broad brim hat before venturing out.

It is important to take steps to protect your hands and skin to avoid cuts and scrapes by wearing gardening gloves. Your skin is your first defense against infection, and any breaks in the skin create an opportunity for germs to enter your body. Be especially careful around roses or other plants with sharp thorns.

Wearing gardening gloves also protects your hands from direct contact with soil, that can contain bacteria and mould. After gardening, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water and maybe a splash of the thankyou hand sanitiser included in Kit.
