Meditating 5 minutes a day can drastically improve your life. How? It makes you become more self-aware, more mindful and creates clarity for you to pursue your dreams and goals in life.
Here is how Meditation can improve your life:
Meditation helps you to be more mindful in all aspects of life, this means that you are more self aware which allows you to take better decisions. I experience this when it comes to my daily activities, it helped me to focus on the most important tasks I want to accomplish and actually accomplishing them. I also experience this when it comes to eating and drinking, I make better food choices, enjoy my meals more, eat slower and avoid rushing.
You can focus more on the task at hand without thinking about about all the things that still need to be done. This helps you to relax, be more self conscious, concentrate better and to get things done more effectively.
As you become more self-aware and can focus better on your tasks, you will be much more productive. You will reduce your procrastination habits which allows you to get more done in a day.
Meditating improves your connection to your inner self which in return helps you to concentrate on what you truly value in life. By focusing on your values and what makes you happy you will automatically express this positive energy in life. As you express more positive energy, you will receive more positive energy from other people and (this might sound funny) from the universe.
Anxiety is a feeling of fear that you can get when thinking of the future. Meditating helps you to live in the moment instead of the future or the past, this helps you to get over anxiety when it arrises or fears that come from past experiences.
Improves your quality of sleep
Meditating helps you to be at rest in your mind and body, which helps you to get a better rest and a deeper sleep. Since I have been meditating I found that I have been dreaming a lot more and even remembering my dreams (which I never used to do). This shows that you can actually improve your sleep quality as well as your short term memory.
