Infertility treatment is never easy; in fact, it can be quite stressful. There are things you can do each day to help yourself feel in control and empower your thinking toward the positive and not the negative.
Practice Self Awareness: Know yourself, your limits, strengths, weaknesses, and most of all your values. When you feel run down, tired, or like you want to give up, rest and take care of yourself. Remember, it's also okay to say no if you don't feel like doing something.
Use Positive Self Talk: Be your own advocate. You are pretty freaking awesome - make sure you REALLY know it. If you don't believe it, say it to yourself, again and again; we tend to believe what we tell ourselves, so be sure you're using positive affirmations to yourself each day.
Strive to Learn: Learn something everyday. Lifelong learning is a way to keep our minds open, maintain our curiosity, and also not focus on negative things!
Seek to Understand People: We are all different, yet we are also all the same. So before you seek to be understood, seek to understand.
Live in the Present: Enjoy each and every day. Don't look back, that's not the direction you're heading - your going forward, into the future!
Don't Worry About the Future: Worrying does nothing, so let it go; see live in the present!
Don't Regret Your Past: Own it. Learn from it. Use it. and Let it go. Simple.
Don't Run Yourself Down: See Positive Self Talk above - you are AWESOME. End of Story.
Believe In Yourself: You've got this!
