Never hurts to take a page out of a billionaire's playbook...
Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, shared some of his daily practices at a speech last week...
Do the mental heavy lifting in the morning. "I do my high-IQ meetings before lunch," he said.
If an important issue crops up later in the afternoon, Bezos usually will hold off meeting about it until the next day.
He prioritizes sleep in order to boost his energy and mood.
Don't sweat the small stuff. "As a senior executive, you get paid to make a small number of high-quality decisions," he said. "Your job is not to make thousands of decisions every day." It's "enough" for him to make around three good decisions every day.
How does this apply to you while you're trying to get pregnant?
For most people, they're sharpest in the morning. Mental focus and willpower are at their highest. Leverage that time to focus on yourself before you give it away to others, like your boss, emails, social media. Instead exercise, pack a lunch for work, meditate.
If you and your partner get in a tiff, you don't need to figure it out immediately. The maxim about not going to bed angry with each other doesn't stand up to real life. Often, you need time & space for the high emotions to settle down.
Quality sleep of about 8 hours is one of the fundamentals of supercharging your fertility. No ifs, ands, buts about it. That's when your body housecleans, regenerates, and heals.
You're the CEO of your life so figure out what's important. At the beginning of each day or at the end of the previous night, write down 3 things you would like to accomplish that would make you happy. One must be for yourself (no alcohol/sweets, go to bed earlier, no electronics 1 hour before bed) and another must include your partner (have a meal together without the TV on, go to bed at the same time so you can talk about the day, send a sexy text).
Master your external environment in order to optimize your internal condition of body, mind, and spirit.
Your future is yours for the taking. How it unfolds is up to you. If you have a vision of growing your family and need help realizing that, work with me: fertilityeggspurt.com/gps
