Sheryl Crow says Cancer changed everything. The musician, singer songwriter was just the game changer needed to look more deeply at her health regime, she changed her diet and exercise when she was given the horrible diagnoses of breast cancer in 2006. Soon after she went through radiotherapy as well taking care of herself in a whole new way.
”I’ve always been a pretty healthy person – I exercise all the time and I’m lucky I don’t need to diet, although I definitely watch what I eat. And I’ve been more conscious of health since I had breast cancer.
“Without question, it was a game changer. It forced me really to look at who I was and the line of people I took care of. I was bottom of my list,” she confessed to British magazine Closer.
The svelte singer has a refreshingly honest opinion when it comes to getting older and reveals that ageing isn’t a concern of hers.
The star, who is now fifty one years old, says that going through such a traumatic events she’s should her feel older, but she feels much younger than her years.
“I don’t have time to think about a number. If I were to look at my life events and experiences, I’m in my 80s. If I looked at my body, and how I felt, I’d say I’m around 32,” she laughed.
Sheryl has two sons, Wyatt and Levi, who she adopted when both were young babies. Since becoming a mom Sheryl’s life has changed once again.
“Having kids definitely puts things in perspective too. Being a parent is the hardest job, but also the most rewarding and satisfying one,” she added.
