Hi! This is Lisa Stack, and I’m the CNY Fertility Support Coordinator. In addition to my Words of Support and Encouragement article this week, I wanted to upload a quick video talking about meditation. Now of course there are many benefits of meditation and it really is just a wonderful, nurturing act that you can do for your mind and your body. We are talking a lot about meditation in addition to Dr. Kiltz’s The Fertile Secret book and the chapter on Fertile Thoughts. He uploaded a great article on the Fertile thoughts and his ideas behind meditation and breathing and his thoughts on treating yourself positively and patiently and getting a positive, patient response from your body. It’s a great idea, a great concept. He goes into it a lot more deeply in his book; just to give you a quick little excerpt is if you treat yourself patiently and positively, your mind and your body are connected and your body will respond patiently and positively. We have a couple of tools to get you going with meditation. I have the meditation webinars and uploaded audio documents so that you can take a look at those files. We also have a lot of meditation incorporated into our yoga classes especially Yoga for Fertility. We have a couple of meditation workshops scattered throughout our centers so you can utilize those where you need to. If you’d like some more support with meditation please let me know, but I hope you try it out. Just take a couple minutes every day to try and quiet your mind, slow your breathing down a little bit. Just relax and give your mind and body the peace and time to work. Have a great week!
