It is important that you take some time to understand how to fully relax your body and mind before you start your treatment so that you feel confident and ready to manage your stress levels. Stress reduction is an excellent way to boost fertility, and one of the best ways to de-stress is to exercise mindfully. Although excessive exercise is not recommended during IVF, there are ways you can keep your body fit and healthy while nurturing your mind at the same time.
