Circle & Bloom Ipod Shuffle Giveaway!

  

I have never been the type of person to try anything “new age” or any sort of alternative forms of medicine. But being on this TTC journey has pretty much left me with my hands thrown up in the air saying to myself and everyone else….I give up! No, I don’t mean give up TTC..I mean give up the idea that I know about what I am doing, and at this point I am just winging it. At this point I am pretty much willing to give anything a try. That’s why this month I am giving the finger to more “regular ways” of TTC…and am moving on to more “alternative” methods. As you know this month I have been trying Acupuncture  but what you don’t know is that I have also been using meditation in my quest for relaxation. And my meditation of choice right now is the Circle + Bloom Fertility Program.

I learned about Circle + Bloom while reading one of my favorite blogs… Baby Making Machine . After learning about the program I was very intrigued and when they offered for me to try their audio program I jumped at the chance. Like I said, I am not one to just relax and let my mind go..I mean I don’t even relax in the bath tub…but I figured it was certainly worth a try. The theory behind the program is to get your mind and body in sync. I think they say it best on their site.. 

Taking 15 minutes for yourself each day, in the privacy of your own home, you can reduce the negative effects of stress and direct your body with your mind to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Our program demystifies the idea of implementing both stress reduction and mind + body techniques to improve fertility. We’ve done the research for you and created a powerful regimen using relaxation techniques and daily guided visualizations that track the changes happening in your body on a monthly basis. 

The program consists of 28, 15 minute audio tracks. One for each day of your cycle. (if it’s longer or shorter there are ways to work it out so don’t worry) In these 15 minutes you are left to relax and think about nothing but peaceful thoughts. I have to tell you, that it is absolutely wonderful! I even have been using the program WHILE I get my acupuncture! 

Do I believe that this will get me pregnant?? I don’t know….but what I do believe is that this program allows me 15 minutes to myself every day. 15 minutes of pure relaxation…15 minutes for my mind to just shut down (which doesn’t happen often).. and whatever it does..it definitely puts my mind and body at ease. Other than during acupuncture I found I like to do it before bed time. It was a great program to fall asleep to.

      Relax? What does that mean? How is it done?.. I try to relax by taking a hot bath, or listening to some nice classical music.. but I have a hard hard time turning off my brain.. so relaxing don’t work so well. I’d love getting ahold of something that helps with that!

    8. Porche says:

      This month I’ve started practicing HOT yoga (the room is like 90 degrees for deep stretching). I’ve also started listing to the free Circle+Bloom audio. I’m not sure if it’s working but I do feel relaxed and calm when I list to it at night and I definitely sleep much better.

      Finding time to relax is definitely a challenge! I try to go to yoga classes at least once a week, which I find really helpful. I find getting a massage extremely relaxing too, but only get to do that once or twice a year. Finally, lighting some candles and curling up with a good book and a glass of wine usually does the trick too!

    20. HopefulMamaHack says:

      What do I do to relax?

      Reading, yoga, going to the gym, playing video games, shopping (retail therapy), talking/venting, guided meditation and journaling/blogging.

      A combination of these I do on a daily basis, have to keep myself sane somehow, right?
