Pink Ribbon Act

___

October marks the Breast Cancer Awareness month across the world. As the second deadliest illness for women in Indonesia, this movement involves numerous organizations to take part in educating people about breast cancer. One of the companies that has been actively spreading this awareness is Wacoal Indonesia.

 

To support the movement, on 6th October ‘18 Central Dept. Store with Wacoal Indonesia held an event called, ‘Let’s Get Fit Wacoal Pink Ribbon Act’. Wacoal invited breast cancer specialist and also breast cancer survivors to share their stories. They explained the importance of doing ‘SADARI’ - ‘PerikSA – PayuDAra – SendiRI’ (a self-breast examination) on a regular basis, especially for women who already hit 40 years old.

From that session there are some takeaways we can take to prevent the illness:

 

BE CONSCIOUS ON WHAT YOU EAT

 It doesn’t mean you need to be vegan & change your diet completely, just be thoughtful on things you put in your body & be moderate with the less healthy food (food with preservatives, food-coloring & sweetener).

 

STOP SMOKING & LESSEN YOUR ALCOHOL INTAKE

It sounds cliche but taking this prevention will save your life. The study found your risk for getting cancers will decrease over time if you stop drinking. Quitting is an important step in improving your health.

 

PRACTICE ‘SADARI’ REGULARLY

Starts early is better. At least you’re doing it once a month.

 

EXERCISE REGULARLY

Reduce the risk of breast cancer by being physically active for around 20 minutes a day.

 

THINK POSITIVELY

Avoid stress as much possible.
