I have to be honest with you. Meditating changed my life.
It helped me to overcome my insomnia. It allowed me to build a successful business. And it made me happier and more content. But that’s not all.
It also had a positive effect on my relationship.
A couple of months ago, I had a terrible argument with my girlfriend. Back then, we used to argue a lot. This was also a time when I didn’t know anything about meditation and its power.
After one of our arguments, I searched for a solution to my problem. I knew that my reckless behavior and my inflated ego were responsible for the stress in our relationship. I knew that I had to change.
Then I talked to a friend who practiced meditation.
At first, I refused to accept that breathing in and out could save my life and my relationship. He didn’t give up and showed me an article that lists 76 benefits of meditation that are scientifically proven. I read the article and decided to give it a shot.
This was the best decision of my life.
Today, I’m happy and the relationship with my girlfriend is better than it has ever been. Let me show you how meditation changed my life and my relationship and how it can do the same for you.
Self-Love Leads to a Loving Relationship
Many people ignore the fact that you can only receive love from another human being if you love yourself.
It sounds cheesy and like a cliché that your mom used to tell you, but it’s the truth. I swear. You can’t expect someone to love you when you can’t even love yourself.
Unfortunately, there was a time when I didn’t love myself. Like I already said, my behavior was reckless and my ego was inflated. And a big ego is not the same as healthy self-love. I had to learn this the hard way.
When I finally started to love myself, my relationship changed to the better. The way my girlfriend looked at me changed and the way I treated her changed too.
It’s hard to describe but the effect that self-love can have on your relationship is magical.
You Can Finally Focus on the Important Things in Life
It might sound weird but YouTube was one reason why the relationship with my girlfriend was struggling. No, I’m not a YouTube star. I just spent too much time watching senseless videos on the platform.
Oh, and I spent countless hours watching TV, playing with my smartphone and doing all kinds of other things that were not important at all. Thanks to my regular meditation practice I finally realized that I was wasting my time and that I didn’t focus on the important things in life.
What are the important things in life?
Well, everyone has different priorities, but I think you agree with me when I say that your relationship, your family, your friends, and your business are important parts of your life.
Now that I meditate regularly, I have the focus to spend my time with the people I love and with things that contribute to my growth.
In other words, I spent my time developing my business and enjoying the presence of my girlfriend.
A Better Health Leads to a Better Relationship
Meditation has so many health benefits.
It can help you to heal from chronic pain. It can help you with your headache. And it can even cure mild forms of depression.
I don’t say that I was a complete wreck, but I have to admit that my lifestyle was anything but healthy. I ate too much sugar, had sleeping problems and I had days when I didn’t want to leave the house.
Meditation helped me to become healthier and in the process my relationship became healthier too.
I smiled more. I wanted to do more things and experience adventures. I was finally ready to live my life to the fullest and my girlfriend was more than happy about this.
I think we traveled more within the past three months than within the past three years. Our relationship is no longer boring. It’s exciting and I love every second of it.
Less Stress Means Less Arguments
Does the following scenario sound familiar to you?
You come home from work. It was a hard day. Your boss gave you hell and you had to work on a project with one of your colleagues who you don’t like at all. You just want to go home and forget the day.
The moment you open the door, your girlfriend says something to you. You just mumble “not now” and walk to your bedroom. She feels ignored and confronts you but you just walk away.
This is how arguments arise.
Stress is one of the biggest burdens in a relationship. That’s why it is so important to calm your mind and to learn how to deal with stress. A regular meditation practice can improve your dating life and solve your relationship issues because it helps you to cope with stress.
Your Increased Cognitive Skills Allow You to Make Better Decisions
Since I started this journey, I’m more creative, more focused, and it’s a lot easier for me to comprehend abstract concepts.
The effect that meditation had on my cognitive skills is astonishing. Of course, this helped me to develop my business, but it also helped me to improve my relationship.
My increased cognitive skills allow me to make better decisions.
Instead of wasting my time with YouTube videos, I can make the conscious decision to spend time with the woman I love.
Instead of looking at Instagram accounts of famous Playboys, I make the conscious decision to control my ego and to value and appreciate the relationship with my girlfriend.
Once I had the power to make the best possible decisions, it was easy to maneuver my life and my relationship in the best possible direction.
