10 Lifestyle Changes After Doing Meditation on Twin Hearts Regularly.
- Waking Up Earlier:
Meditation enhances the quality of your nighttime sleep. As a result, you’ll generally require less sleep and yet, feel just as rested the next day.
- Drinking Less Alcohol:
Many people consume alcohol as a way of alleviating stress. If that’s you, then you may notice less of a desire to drink as much when the benefits of daily meditation start to kick in.
Alcohol, after all, is a depressant. As meditation helps you release your stress and boost immunity, the need for excessive amounts of alcohol begins to wane.
- You Have More Patience:
Meditation helps to expand the window of perception, allowing you to see value in every experience and every relationship. After meditating, you get less perturbed and more patient around cancelled plans, insensitive partners, rude customer service reps, or any other situation that may have elicited a negative response in your past.
- You Stop Seeking External Happiness:
After starting meditation, happiness begins to fill you up from within. How do you know? Because as your circumstances inevitably change (i.e. your relationship ends, you lose money, you experience failure), weirdly, you'll still feel happy inside. There will be less of a need to control people, places, or situations. Why? Because you’ve tapped into the source of fulfillment, which has always resided within.
- You Can Do Less, and Achieve More:
Let’s do a thought experiment:
You wake up feeling tired, sick or headachy. How generous, compassionate, and open-minded are you going to be that day? Now, imagine the opposite. You wake up feeling rested, bright, and happy. How much will you get done that day, compared to the other day when you felt sick?
- Increases Fertility:
Consistent meditation triggers what physiologists call the “feed and breed” response, which is the opposite of the “fight-or-flight” stress response. This literally means you become more fertile. Many women who have had fertility challenges find it easier to get pregnant after starting a daily meditation practice.
Likewise, meditation increases testosterone in men, which helps to correct sexual dysfunctions and increase stamina.
- Less "FOMO" (Fear of Missing out).
FOMO is a result of the acquisitive approach to happiness — the mistaken idea that happiness is coming in the future after you achieve a certain experience. But the more you meditate, the more that FOMO begins to get replaced by more present moment awareness, which means you feel less desperation around needing to be somewhere else.
- More YOLO (You Only Live Once).
YOLO is a universal call to take a risk, to have an adventure, or to seize the day. What keeps you from taking bold actions in life is usually tied to internal fears or uncertainty about the outcome. These are remnants of stress accumulated in the body.
Stress has a paralyzing effect on your potential, and it can dim your sense of adventure. As stress gets dissolved through regular meditation, you find yourself naturally becoming more daring. So get ready to start that new business, take up that new hobby, or travel around the world.
- You Trust Yourself More:
The heart has gained a reputation for making you gullible.
Mixed in with the wise guidance from the heart are the myriad fears from your head. Regular mmeditation activates a sort of spam filter for the negative self-talk of the mind, and allows you to detect the purest messages from your true center of wisdom. This in turn, will lead you to a greater sense of trust toward the messages emanating from your heart.
- You Can Make Faster Decisions:
Whether it’s choosing between two jobs, three apartments, two hybrid cars, or which way to swipe on your dating app, having more perceptual acuity allows you to quickly diagnose which are the best options for you in the moment, and which ones are not.
This also turns out to be a huge time saver, as you will no longer need to bounce ideas off everybody else and can come to the right decision on your own.
