Laughing Your Way Through Infertility: A Spoonful of Sugar
When the weight of your journey seems too much to bear and the negative reports and constant bad news becomes too difficult to swallow, it’s important to find a way to cope–a way to release tension. Sometimes that might be having a good ol’ fashion crying session on the bathroom floor or a fist pound into your pillow. Other times it might be eating a
pint gallon of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream or shoving your face full of french fries that you know will ruin your fertility diet. But another way to release tension and not make you gain weight is to laugh. Laughter has the ability to not only reduce your stress level and blood pressure, but also burn a few calories, kill a couple extra minutes at work and help you shift your focus in order to give your worrisome mind a break. It’s about taking a spoonful of sugar, a dose of laughter; in order to help the medicine, which can the troubles in life, go down easier. So without further ado, here is a spoon full of sugar in this week’s installment of “Laughing Your Way Through Infertility.”
As always, I hope you have a great week and don’t forget to find time to laugh and enjoy the journey while you are on the path to reaching your destination.
