    We often devote a great deal of our time and energy to others: family, work and friends, but what about ourselves? Making positive changes can impact our mental, emotional, and physical health. This can be helpful when dealing with the difficult emotions and stress that accompany infertility. Below I list 10 areas in our lives that we can all try to improve. If you are ready to make healthy changes, pick one, two, or three of the areas below that could help you improve your own state of being. Remember:

Here’s a quick exercise.

Our tweeters rose to the task. To see their response,
