How to Cultivate Positive Mindset with Journaling
Apr 18, 2019
I'm excited to welcome Monica Cox back to the podcast.
We’re digging into journalling during our fertility journey. Check out her full story here.
Monica is somewhat of a hippy & is a bit obsessed with real food. Her clean eating lifestyle evolved slowly during her NINE year infertility journey. She spent six years searching for an answer to her unexplained infertility, which included never seeing a BFP and two failed IVFs. She decided to make some dramatic diet and lifestyle changes to improve her fertility health and requested immune tests, even though the doctors told her she wasn't a candidate for such testing. The results came back and she discovered she had High Natural Killers Cells. The answer to her unexplained infertility.
With five embryos on ice she did three FETs with immune surprising drugs, which resulted in two miscarriages and one beautiful baby boy. Two months after all medical treatment was done and dusted, she found out the dramatic diet and lifestyle changes had paid off and she was pregnant naturally for the first time ever. Baby boy number two entered their family in March 2018.
Monica is a stay at home mom, wife, Fertility Health Coach, author of Baby&Me and creator of #gratedvegbrekkie She's all about inspiring others to improve their physical and mental health on Instagram at @positive_fertility.
It's normal...we all have crappy days.
But when you have a bad day...does that mood stay with you for days, weeks, months or even years?
Today we're talking about how to have a positive mindset on the fertility journey.
And this is not about ignoring strong emotions...exactly the opposite...it's embracing those emotions...so you can move through them.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) How to reframe your experience to set you up for success.
2) What to do when we get off track. We discuss strategies to get you back on course.
3) How journaling can help. Plus how to get started with journaling. Even if the thought of journalling makes you want to run the other way! Check out my favourite app for quick journaling: 5 minute journal.
