Making good decisions, and making small changes can make a difference in your fertility. Small changes are a great place to start. This weekend, instead of revamping all your eating habits, working out too much for the first time or trying to catch up on missed sleep by oversleeping during the weekend, start by making a small change.
Four Lifestyle Choices That Can Enhance Fertility
Fertility can be enhanced by lifestyle choices, here are four suggestions.
Take a walk
Moderate exercise, especially if you haven't been exercising much, can help boost your emotional health by increasing your endorphins. Walking is also a great way to build muscle mass and increase bone mass.
Eat an apple
How and what we eat makes a difference, not only in our weight but also in our overall health. If you don't eat fruit regularly, add some this weekend. To balance the naturally occurring sugar in the fruit, eat a handful of nuts (8-12 nuts) with it.
Sleep 7 hours
Sleeping enough can help ovulation as it produces leptin. Proper sleep hygiene begins with sleeping enough hours, turning off electronics at least one hour before and going to sleep at about the same time every night.
Watch a funny movie
Laugh! Infertility can be a sense of humor downer. Lighten your mood by laughing at a silly movie. Taking your mind off your fertility woes for an hour can be just the mini vacation you need.
