Millenials get a bad rap for being entitled. Deserved or not - that seems to be the general consensus.
To be entitled is to "believe oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment".
One area that every single person seems to feel entitled to is their health. For most of us, we believe ourselves to be invincible until we're in our 30s, barring any major health setbacks. Then we realize we can't recover as fast as we used to. We can't drink as much, eat as much crap, sleep as little, etc. Essentially we take our health for granted until something makes us pause. Then we have to evaluate our lifestyle and pull back on the obvious excesses.
But we end up replacing them with other less obvious health busters that do even more damage because of their cumulative effect.
- Stress - lots and lots of it. Cuz women are notorious for putting way too much on their plates.
- Sugar - lots and lots of it. Not always in obvious forms like candy and cookies. But carbs like breads, pastas, and other refined flour products.
- Sleep - never enough of it.
And so we continue to take our health for granted.
But you can pay the price...by not getting pregnant.
It's a simple fact of our biology. Our prime fertile years are our teens and twenties. Even then, statistically, the chances of getting pregnant in any one month is only about 25%. As we get older that likelihood gets lower.
But it's not all doom and gloom. Not at all...
Developing the awareness of what our physical and emotional bodies need slows down the aging process.
That's a fact. Men in the fast lane to heart attacks can make the conscious choices of eating better, exercising, and reducing stress to improve their outcome.
And so can you.
That's what I teach in my Fertility Top10 - how to improve your chances of getting pregnant with lifestyle changes. http://zenfertility.com/top10
