Recent trends suggest that couples are finding it hard to embrace parenthood due to mental health issues and a fast-paced urban lifestyle. You might be flooded with millions of suggestions when you are planning to conceive. Consuming a nutritionally balanced diet, exercising, and having unprotected sex won’t help you achieve the desired results. It's important to work on your mental as well as physical health if you are getting unsuccessful results from the past few months or years. When your body is dealing with so many mental and physical issues while balancing personal and professional lives you can try yoga and it will help you to deal with the stress and how to face everyday challenges. If the reason behind your inability to conceive is infertility, then yoga can surely increase the chances of conception. Practicing yoga doesn’t guarantee a baby however it improves your chances of conceiving by focusing on 3 elements and that are- improving circulation, reducing stress, and increasing flexibility.
As we all are aware of the amazing health benefits of practicing yoga, we might not know its miraculous effects on infertility issues. If you are trying to conceive then you must practice yoga daily because:
REDUCES STRESS- When you are planning for pregnancy, a healthy body and a calm mind are the 2 pre1conditions that increase your chances of getting pregnant. Regularly practicing yoga is a wonderful way to boost your fertility. When you practice breathing exercises in yoga it helps in lowering the levels of cortisol (stress-causing hormone) and it increases your chances of having a healthy pregnancy. If your stress levels are low, you can enjoy a sound sleep at night and this will not impact your personal and professional life.
IMPROVES BLOOD CIRCULATION- When you regularly practice yoga it helps in flushing out all the toxins from your body. If there are any kind of blockages in your reproductive system and it’s hindering your chances of getting pregnant, yoga helps in working wonders. It helps in detoxifying your internal organs by improving blood circulation.
HORMONAL BALANCE- Regularly practicing yoga will help in keeping the hormones balanced. When your hormones are balanced you can achieve a healthy endocrine system which is essential to achieve optimum fertility.
IMPROVED BODY AWARENESS- Experiencing infertility can cause stress and can make you feel disconnected about when and what your body needs. When you are practicing yoga and meditation you can connect with the inner self that will help you stay calm and poise. You can listen to those signs that your body sends to your mind while taking decisions. You will enjoy your newfound intuitive powers.
COMMUNITY- A great yoga session will help you build your social relationships. It gives you immense pleasure when you know you are breathing and moving with people who have similar goals and interests.
DECREASED INFLAMMATION- Chronic inflammation if left unchecked can contribute to various life-threatening diseases like cancer, obesity, cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, etc. This can negatively impact fertility and your chances of conceiving. Yoga helps in protecting your internal organs and can address various underlying causes like insomnia, unmanaged depression, and hormone dysregulation.
IT FEELS GOOD- We often forget to take good care of ourselves in the hustle-bustle of our daily lives. Undoubtedly, it’s a blissful state when you step away from all your worries and tries to focus on your mind, soul, and body. When you are trying to conceive then listening to your body is imperative. Until and unless we are tired or fall sick, we never stop working however yoga can help you in reconnecting with yourself. Listen to the needs of your body and you can effortlessly sense a connection with your fertility cycle.
