Words of Support and Encouragement Week of August 9, 2010


The mind can be a wonderful tool for relaxation.  Although it takes practice, we can utilize mantras and positive affirmations to calm our emotions in challenging times.  A simple way to create a mantra is to first recognize a phrase that you commonly say to yourself, that may be negative.  Once you can isolate a particular thought, reframe it to reflect a positive idea.  For example, ‘I’ll never get pregnant’ can become ‘I am doing everything I can, and I will become pregnant when the time is right’.
These mantras and affirmations can be particularly helpful during the most challenging times, such as the two-week wait.  For more ways to relax please join us tonight for our Monthly Support Webinar.  You can find login information here: http://cnyfertility.com/discussion/calendar.php?do=getinfo&e=40&day=2010-8-9&c=1
Best of luck,
