I’ve been talking a lot about the parasympathetic system lately, and the importance of “rest and digest” especially when it comes to fertility. I am constantly on the go and often realize that my entire day was spent in a busy “fight or flight” mode without any time for my body to really slow down. .
It’s an unfortunate cycle that is so easy to get caught up in. When we spend our day rushing and stressing all day, our body’s natural instinct is to shut down on unnecessary organ functions (like the reproductive organs) and only focus on getting you away from that “lion” 🐆 ... So the very LAST thing it will do is help you make a baby! .
Finding ways to encourage the resting and digesting in every day is important for all of us, but especially important to help conceive.
