Having failure in becoming parents through natural processes depends on several factors such as age, reproductive health issues, family history, and poor lifestyle. Stress is one of those factors. Many research papers advocate the bad impact of stress on human fertility. It might cause 30% of all infertility issues in men and women. Here, it means you need to look into yourself and work on lowering your stress level if you feel you are stressed. Here are some ways to de-stress yourself to boost your fertility:
Take a healthy diet every time
A balanced diet is critical for each human being. However, you (married couples) need to pay special attention to your diet as you plan your parenthood journey. You should ensure it is healthy and friendly for your fertility. You (females and males) can enhance your egg quality and embryo development and increase sperm count by taking healthy food items. For this, you should take:
- Whole grains
- Green, leafy, and seasonal vegetable
- Citrus fruits such as grapes and oranges and fibre rich fruits like apples
- Beans and lentils
- Egg yolks
- Healthy dairy products such as milk and cheese
- And allied others
Listen to music
Music plays a pivotal role in lifting moods. Many studies suggest that listening to your favourite music can help you lower blood pressure, minimise stress level, and regulate heart rate. In your parenthood journey, you should avoid having stress and listen to your favourite music to lower its level if you suffer from it.
Be positive and use positive language
To succeed in any field, you need to be positive, have positive thoughts, act positively and use a positive language to keep yourself away from negativity. As a couple, you may come across people in your network who can be problematic for you when you are facing failures in your conception journey. You need to stay away from such people and focus on the positive part of your family expansion plan. Being positive will surely be fruitful for both of you.
Meet your friends and well-wishers
In our life, we have someone when we need any type of support. And strong support from your family members, friends, relatives, and well-wishers always work better. You must be social. Being social becomes more crucial when you are stressed or having conception failures. As far as possible, stay in constant touch with your parents, family members, friends, and allied people. Go to their residence and have a face-to-face interaction with them. If having a face-to-face interaction is a little tricky for you due to any reasons, you should converse with them on normal phone or video calls. It will save you from being alone in your world.
Apart from being helpful in overall health, taking exercises is beneficial for psychological/mental health. It releases the hormones, endorphins, that make your body have a relaxed feeling. And a relaxed feeling means you are away from stress, anxiety, or depression. So, start exercising for 30 minutes a day or 150 minutes a week to have a free mind and flexible body.
Meditation helps you have a cool and calm mind and body. It releases your worries and helps you feel relaxed. To meditate, you need to sit and take deep breaths by closing your eyes.
Take a break from your work and daily life
In general, we have a bore feeling due to having the same things in our life for a longer period. Further, you come across people talking about your family expansion plan now and then. Such a talk triggers your stress level. You should avoid being around such people. And for this, taking a break from your daily life and work and going on a vacation will be beneficial for you.
Stress causes you a lot. It works worse especially when you are trying to conceive or improving your fertility. First, you should work on lowering your stress level. And listening to music, exercising, meditation, vacation, laughing, and socialising can help you a lot in this regard.
