Meditation has endless benefits to the mental and physical health of every human being.
Apart from calming and reducing stress levels, meditation helps you to be aware of your body and mind, as well as very observant of those around you.
Regular meditation will help you develop your strength to handle stressful situations without being afraid. It lowers your blood pressure and strengthens your immune system, thereby making you feel better, think better, and react better to situations.
Ever since I started the practice of mediating daily, even if I do it for 5 to 10 minutes, there is always a significant result. Some of the results I have experienced include;
1. Sleeping better (both during the day and at night).
2. More Observant of my environment and those in it, which helps me understand them better.
3. A lack of desire for quarrels. I find it very easy to let go of issues because I preferr to keep my peace.
4. It has helped me see things and situations from a clearer uninflunced and unbiased angle.
All of these have gone a long way in helping me and it can also help you to build and sustain your love life with your partner, especially if your partner is open to getting involved in daily meditation. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a courtship or married already. You’d be able to reduce impulsive attitudes between yourself and your partner, while increasing patience and improving couples’ communication, intimacy, and a positively sex life.
