Top Tips To Getting Started With Surrogacy Plans

26 Sep

Getting pregnant is much harder than you expected it to be, and you’ve been through a lot of anxiety and heartbreak. Stay strong, I’ve been in your shoes and there’s still hope for starting or expanding your family! If you’re seriously considering gestational Surrogacy in Georgia, here’s a checklist to help you get started.

1. Confirm That Gestational Surrogacy Is Right for You.

Before you put a check mark next to this statement, think about it carefully. Have you done thorough research into the surrogacy process and all of the steps and people involved? Is your partner or spouse on board with the decision to find a surrogate? In your heart, do you believe that this is the right move for your family? If so, then you can check off #1.

2. Find a Lawyer.

This is the step that too many intended parents overlook, until something goes wrong. Find a lawyer in Maryland with experience in assisted reproduction and the laws that relate to it. You’ll need a good reproductive attorney as part of your support team for reviewing clinic forms, drafting the surrogacy agreement or preparing a birth order.

3. Get In Touch with a Surrogacy Agency and Fertility Clinic.

Now it’s time to take the next step and contact a local surrogacy agency or IVF clinic. You can search online to find out which clinics or agencies operate in your area. You may also find some helpful ratings and reviews from intended parents who have used those agencies and facilities in the past. Of course, you’re eager to get started, but make sure that you contact and consider more than one agency rather than simply going with the first search result that you see.

4. Make a Financial Plan.

At this point, you may need to pause and evaluate the state of your finances. Your surrogacy lawyer or fertility clinic may be able to help you identify some ways to fund the surrogacy arrangement, or you may need to consult with a financial advisor about your options for covering the costs.

5. Tell Your Story.

Once you have funding in place and you’re ready to move forward, your agency may ask you to write a letter or create a profile of yourself and your partner. Tell your story, explain your situation and your desire for a child, and include any expectations you have for a surrogate and for your surrogacy journey. This profile information helps the agency match you with a surrogate.

6. Keep Learning.

You have probably done a lot of research and listened to a lot of facts at this point, but don’t get burned out. Keep researching and learning more about gestational surrogacy. That knowledge will help you feel more confident and secure as you move ahead.

Making Smoking a Conscious Choice

20 Sep

We all remember our childhood days when our parents told us not to eat chocolate before lunch or would not allow us to watch television when we wanted. The subconscious mind reacts negatively when it is deprived of its ability to make choices or when it feels forced to do something against its will. Disappointments resulting from not being able to fulfill one’s desires can add up and lead to an inner emptiness that wants to be filled. Smoking is simply a subconscious rebellion against the external manipulation of our freedom to choose what we want, and it appears to fill that uncomfortable space within, at least for a little while. However, this inner lack can only subside permanently when we have regained the freedom to make our own choices. You must know that you are free to smoke whenever you like and as often you like. If you have a cigarette and a match to light it, you will certainly find a way to smoke it, too.

The unconscious association of smoking, with all the other ‘don’ts’ in your past, will be negated by accepting your desire to smoke. I had my first cigarette when I entered high school at age ten. I felt like a criminal because the law said I was only allowed to smoke when I was sixteen years old. My parents were certainly strictly against smoking. Years of hiding my ‘secret’ from my parents and my teachers left me with no other choice but to continue smoking until I felt I had a choice. When I finally got the legal permission to smoke, I lost interest and chose to quit. I was able to give up the habit at once, without any withdrawal symptoms.

The first and most important step to quit smoking is to give yourself permission to smoke. Guilt from the act of smoking will only prevent you from gaining satisfaction and urge you to have another cigarette that may ‘at last’ give you what you have been looking for. But you are not really looking for the short sensation of satisfaction that smoking provides but for the lost freedom to make your own choices in life. By trying to avoid lighting up, you also deprive yourself of this potential satisfaction. The resistance to smoking creates powerful psychosomatic side effects. These are known as withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms may include depression, lack of interest in life, sleeplessness, anger, nausea, ravenous hunger, obesity, cardiovascular disease, lack of concentration, and shaking. However, these symptoms can only manifest if you believe that you have been deprived of your freedom to smoke.

Choosing To Smoke Less, But…

Don’t fight your desire to smoke. Contrary to general belief, to give up smoking you do not need to abolish your desire to smoke. You will start giving up the habit automatically once you choose not to follow your desire to smoke each and every time you have it (the desire to smoke).This will take the fuel out of your subconscious, rebellious mind and stop you short of becoming a victim of external forces, situations or people. A master of yourself, you can choose to smoke or choose not to smoke. Keep your cigarettes with you as long as you feel you want to have this choice. It may even be a good idea to encourage your desire to smoke by keeping your cigarette pack in front of you, smelling it from time to time. Watch other people around you light up and inhale, imagining that you inhale deeply too. Do not count the days that pass without you smoking and do not look ahead in time either. You neither need to prove to yourself nor to anyone else that you can beat this addiction. In fact, you don’t want to beat it at all. You want to benefit from it. You are neither a better person if you quit, nor are you a worse person if you don’t. You are free to stop smoking today and begin again tomorrow. You will always have this choice, and you will always be only a puff away from being a smoker, just like the rest of us.

The choice of using and training your free will has to be made in the ever-present moment, right now, and has to be done anew repeatedly many times each day. The longer the periods of time during which you actualize your choice not to smoke, the more quickly diminishes your urge to smoke, becoming less intense each day. Whenever the desire to smoke returns, which is possible because the ghost of memory doesn’t just leave your subconscious overnight, you are once again compelled to make a new choice. This time, however, your conscious mind finds it much easier to stick with its previous successful choice because of the newly improved self-confidence and self-esteem. Setbacks don’t exist in this program; only exercising your freedom of choice does. One way or the other, you are in charge. https://selfchec.org/healthy-habits/stop-smoking/body-changes/

Best Juicing Diet Tips For You

12 Sep

If you’re thinking about going on a juice diet, let us help you on your journey with this list of the healthiest, most surprising and most useful juice diet tips.

1. Use your brain. Pick a diet that seems nutritionally sound and is not extreme. Drinking only juice for two weeks straight is not nutritionally sound.

Consuming juices with no added fats for more than a few days is not nutritionally sound. Nor is following a low-protein diet for long periods of time. If it sounds like a fad diet, it probably is.

Replacing a meal a day with juice, or doing a two or three-day juice fast is fine for most people, but a doctor should be consulted first if you have any health issues. Doing intermittent, short juice fasts can be a healthy choice for people without diabetes or kidney issues.

Ideally, a healthy diet should include solid foods and juices, and incorporate healthy fats in addition to proteins and carbohydrates. Consuming dietary fiber is also necessary for good health, and is something juices cannot provide. A diet of only juices cannot provide all of the nutrients you need for good health.

2. Don’t be surprised if you get tired of juice at some point during your diet. Mix things up! Try new combinations of fruits and vegetables.

Try mixing your fresh juice with pureed avocado, pureed banana, crushed ice, almond milk and/or yogurt. Add healthy oils like flaxseed or extra virgin olive oil, especially to savory vegetable juices.

Use juicing to create a gazpacho soup or a carrot-ginger dressing for a raw salad. Look up new fruit- and vegetable-based recipes to try. Consider investing in a raw food cookbook for additional ways to incorporate raw fruits and vegetables into your diet.

3. Juice only what you will drink. Juice oxidizes quickly, especially if it’s foamy and aerated, which destroys some of its micronutrients. One of the most important juice tips that many people have never heard of is that juicing ahead of time is not healthy.

If you will be away from your juicer for much of the day, feel free to make and bottle (in non-reactive glass jars or bottles) the amount of juice that you will need while away from home. But don’t juice on Sundays for the rest of the week, or juice your dinner in the morning. It won’t look or taste as good, and it certainly won’t be as good for your health.

4. Juicing is not just for fruits and vegetables. There are many plants that people forget about when starting to juice, but which can add so much to juices.

Try flavorful roots like ginger or turmeric. Delicious and powerfully healthy alliums like garlic and scallions. Edible flowers such as nasturtiums and pansies, or herbs such as basil, parsley and cilantro.

And don’t forget about lemons and limes, which are fruits that often get ignored when it comes time to turn the juicer on! They can significantly change and improve the flavor profile of many different juices, especially vegetable juices.

5. Be patient. Although some people experience an instant burst of energy the first day they start juicing, others do not. Some people take longer to see improvements in their health.

One of the most important juice diet tips is to remember that the first few days may not be easy – They may involve hunger, headaches, or mild nausea. These side effects tend to go away after a few days. It is worth the wait, because you will eventually start to feel your health improve.

Think about how long you were eating unhealthy processed foods and you will realize that it makes sense for it to take a while to undo the damage from that type of diet. So be patient with your juicing, and know that it will pay off in time, with better energy, healthier skin and hair, and improved immunity.
