It's January 26th. How's that New Year's Resolution coming? Done. Over? Finished?
How about we press a restart button, only this time instead of the huge commitment that you likely made and haven't kept, let's try #OneSmallChange.
#OneSmallChange Advice From Fertility Specialists
Best suggestions from fertility specialists for #OneSmallChange:
- Get more sleep- minimum of seven hours. Make it easier on yourself, turn off the electronics an hour before bedtime. It will make it easier to get to sleep and it will make it easier to stay asleep.
- Add some veggies to your plate. Notice that I am not suggesting that you stop all sugar, flour, etc? Add a red veggie- peppers or tomato. Have some fun! Add a purple veggie- red cabbage, gorgeous and delicious. Add a green one- celery, cucumbers, peppers, or an heirloom lettuce.
- Exercise! Get into the gym a minimum of one hour every day and walk thirty minutes a day in addition. No. Kidding. That wouldn't be #OneSmallChange, that would be a huge change. Instead, try to add 30 minutes of walking five days a week. Maybe at lunch? Maybe after work? Get a walking pal, makes it more fun makes you accountable.
- Stress less, meditate more. And again, you don't need to do a six week pilgrimage to a place where there are no phones and no electricity. You could go to your phone and add a free app. Choose a 3 minute meditation. That would be #OneSmallChange.
New Year's Resolutions can be a royal pain. They're hard to keep and it's demoralizing when we fail. So choose something different. A small change. Maybe a different small change every day.
That's a manageable goal for every day. Improve your fertility, #OneSmallChange at a time.
