Want to Get Pregnant Fast? We'll Tell You How

Incorporate mindfulness into your routine

Mindfulness is definitely a buzzword at the moment. But think about what it really means - according to Merriam-Webster, "the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis." So, it's more than just a catchy Instagram hashtag. To incorporate mindfulness into your routine, sit in silence, either alone or with your partner, and think about nothing but your breathing. When your thoughts stray, bring them back only to your breathing. This is meant to clear your head of all extraneous information, and bring your brain back to its most important thoughts.

You might be wondering how or why this would be useful when it comes to conception, but your mental health and your physical health are intrinsically intertwined, and if you are stressing too much then your body will not be able to operate optimally and as such, your chances of conception will be lower.
