If you are indeed planning to have a baby, and have been trying for a while, maybe your stress levels are way too high and you need to do something about it. Here are a few simple ways in which you can destress and boost your fertility. The connection may not be direct, but it affects various physiological conditions that can play havoc with your chances of getting pregnant. Like music? Let that music play in the background. Make a playlist with your favourite songs. Put it on while you do your chores, exercise or when you feel that your stress levels are rising higher than they should. Be sure that you will feel much better when you hear your favourite tunes wafting into your ear. Studies show that listening to music helps regulate heart rate, it decreases the levels of hormones responsible for stress, and also helps lower blood pressure.
