Sleep & Rest

Patients often face long term hospital stays that include lack of proper rest and sleep which can lead to many physiological stressors various chronic health conditions from eating habits to depression.

Mentally revisiting the things Survivors are thankful for activates brain chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that boost positive mental and physical health.

Every cell and organ depends on water to perform its essential function. For cancer survivors, treatment side effects (diarrhea, vomiting) and certain medications can lead to dehydration. By drinking, tracking, and reflecting, survivors strengthen the neural conversation around hydration, thereby forging stronger habits.

Breath & Focus

Luminaries is about helping you cultivate a growth mindset, and set you up to achieve more than you thought possible.

 

Ensuring your mind processes and celebrates your successes is a vital part of our mental health because it gives us that little boost of confidence and offers even the smallest reminder that we are on the right track. And wins add up. Leading to the development of what is called a positive growth mindset. Eventually you look back on something you thought you could never do and realize that all of your little successes were building blocks for larger achievement and progress.

Luminaries gives you the time and space to celebrate those successes. Make sure to pause, smile, and pat yourself on the back (or fist pump to yourself, or dance in the living room, or jot a note in your journal) because it just might lead to something bigger.

Luminaries is grounded in neuroscience, positive psychology, and physiology

When you engage in the Luminaires program you are not only learning, but doing. Luminaries is about being present, and teaches you to take notice of how your body and mind feel to connect these feelings and form positive habits. You get to move at your own pace, experience the program in the comfort of your home, and build life-changing habits along the way.

We keep you engaged with helpful, encouraging nudges when the challenges of life try to knock you off course.

By combining the expertise of Robert H. Lurie's Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Cancer Survivorship Institute, and the personal journey of Luminaries, we will revolutionize how Survivors receive curated, life-changing Survivorship care and support regardless of where they live or where they get treatment.
