5 Healthy Habits For Fertility Boosting

If you and your partner are trying to conceive, you’ve probably gotten the lecture. Maybe you’re looking at fertility treatments or you’re currently working with a specialist. Whether it’s a medical professional, friends, or family, someone somewhere is giving you a list of things not to do.

While we can get behind things like quitting smoking and drinking, we prefer to be positive around these parts. Instead of a list of things not to do, keep reading for 5 habits that will boost your fertility.

  1. If you’re trying to conceive, stress is one of your biggest obstacles. We know relaxation is easier said than done sometimes, but try to have a plan of attack for those high-stress moments. Breathing exercises, mantras, meditation, whatever works for you, as long as you keep it short and simple.
  2. For 1 in 8 couples, fertility can involve unexpected expenses. Come up with a sensible financial plan that works for you. Try cutting back, so perhaps you have the $6 latte once weekly instead of daily.
  3. Since you’re trying to start a family, you clearly have goals. A great way to set and achieve those goals is to start a journal. Take time to record and visualize what you want.
  4. Take a little time to organize and prepare your health care insurance. While it may be a bit dull, it’s the kind of chore that you’ll be happy to have finished.
  5. Be sure to treat yourself. If all week you’ve been on top of exercise and good eating habits, a spa visit or time binge watching your favorite show is a great reward.
