As we reach the end of January, we are focusing on getting back on track and returning to our normal routines. The holidays, while a wonderful time to celebrate and enjoy friends and family, often throw us out of our regular day-to-day schedules. We spend more time shopping, preparing for holiday gatherings, and catching up with those we love. In turn, there is less time for a steady diet, exercise, and meditation practice. Whether you were cycling through the holidays, or you took the past month off, now is the time to take a step back and return to the basics of wellness.
Transitioning back into your normal routine can be challenging, but if you are able to slowly reintroduce the components of wellness that felt most beneficial to you, you will likely find peace and serenity in returning to the familiar. As you return to your regular diet choices, set aside time for yoga or other peaceful movement, and make the effort to quiet your mind, you will find comfort in your well known pace. With this comfort and peace, will come renewed hope for your journey to fertility. Gathering yourself together for a fresh start after a holiday break will take time, but the transition will open your heart to new possibilities for your fertility.
To help you ease back into increased health and wellness, it is helpful to look back and recognize the foods and practices that helped you feel your best. First, try to think back to a time when you felt rested, light, energized and calm. What were you doing to support your wellness? Were you getting extra rest, attending yoga regularly, or limiting carbohydrates and sugars? If so, those are perfect places to start and reintroduce those practices to your daily routine.
As you ease back into the support we have available to you, know that we are happy to have you back. We are available for anything that you need, on your journey to your most fertile self.
