How To Manage Emotional Wellness During The Fertility Journey
Sometimes it can be overwhelming to look at the entire journey – where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. Thinking ahead may be something you need to do from time to time, especially when you are making plans, but it can help to strategically step back on occasion and instead pick up the little bits.
It can help to ground yourself by acknowledging your non-fertile gains at times. This could look like celebrating a good day at work, getting one step closer to perfecting the yoga position you practiced, or finally getting your house organized!
It can also be helpful to focus on shorter periods of time, e.g. Instead of asking where you will be in five years’ time, think about where you are right now and what meaningful moments, thoughts, conversations, and plans you can incorporate over the next few hours.
