It’s a new year, one filled with hope and possibility. If you’ve made meaningful New Year’s resolutions surrounding the hope of starting your family building journey this year, the right mindset can help you accomplish your dreams.With this, we offer you five resolutions to help you pursue your goal in the coming months.
RECLAIM YOUR IDENTITY
The fertility journey is all-consuming and can leave you feeling drained. Rather than define yourself by your AMH level or your number of IVF attempts, give yourself grace and let go of the things you’ve been using to define yourself. You are more than your fertility journey – set New Year’s resolutions that help you reclaim YOU!
USE THE INTERNET WISELY
This advice is two-fold. First, rely on your doctor, not the internet, to help you in your fertility journey. Your fertility doctor will give you the personalized medical advice you need for your fertility journey. Second, limit your exposure to social media. Rather than compare your life to the perfectly curated squares of Instagram or posts on your Facebook feed, invest in you. Spend your free time pursuing a new hobby or interest.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVITY
Throughout the family-building journey, surround yourself with the friends and family who love and care for you. Let them lift you up and keep you going.
A NEW YEAR, A NEW YOU
The family building journey can leave you with feelings of perceived loss of control over certain aspects of your life. This year, set New Year’s resolutions that focus on the things in your control. Improve your health by eating well, manage your stress, and find time to exercise.
DON’T LOSE HOPE
Getting pregnant can take time. Keep your eye on the end goal – building your family. It may take more time and energy than you could ever anticipate, and along the way you may have setbacks, but believe in yourself and believe in the process.
We encourage you to embrace 2020 by creating your own list of New Year’s resolutions to help you pursue your fertility journey. Are you ready to take the next step?
