Have you ever overreacted to situations only to regret it later? Wished you had really thought before speaking? Or just kept quiet?

A few years ago (especially in my twenties), I immediately reacted to any situation. Only to be left feeling overwhelmed minutes later. I pushed myself really hard to be successful. Felt trapped in the comparison game. Wanted more out of life. Didn’t find value in the more minor things in life. Does this sound like you? Do you feel guilty for experiencing all these dreadful emotions? Do you want to be less of a drama princess and simply live your best life?

5 Ways Meditation Changed My Life

1. Meditation helped me to calm my mind

Once Meditation became part of my daily routine, I was no longer that girl who acted in haste or spoke without thinking through what I really wanted to say. I was no longer easily agitated by “petty” issues and left feeling ashamed of my reactions minutes later. Meditating helped me to feel calm and at peace with everything and everyone around me. I had no desire to respond to situations that quickly triggered me. Meditation has really taught me that pausing before reacting and staying calm is sometimes the wisest thing to do.

These days, I take unsolicited advice with a grain of salt. And it feels so liberating!

2. Meditation taught me how to trust my intuition

I couldn’t trust myself to make decisions. I always used to ask others for their advice on what I should and shouldn’t do. Afraid of being judged for the choices I made. Thankfully I’m at a much better place now in my life, and much of this is to Meditation. I have learned to tap into my intuition and trust my instinct. To follow my truth and live life on my terms. Doing the things that I love and what truly matters to me. Apart from allowing my intuition to guide me, Meditation has given me clarity in the different areas of my life. Allowing me to make transformations where I can heal and grow.

3. Meditation changed my life through gratification

Alongside Rhonda Bryne’s book – The Secret, Meditation showed me the importance of being grateful and appreciating the things we already have in life. Instead of constantly comparing myself, feeling inferior, and wanting more, I learned to cherish what I already have in my life—having access to the clean air I was breathing in and the purified water I could drink—my health and body.

These are all things I took for granted. But thankfully, Meditation helped me realize how blessed I am to have access to these basic things in life. And I’m no longer complaining about everything falling victim to the comparison game.

I am no longer someone who acts from a place of lack and insecurities. I no longer feel life is a competition and fall victim to the “rat race life.” Instead, I think of abundance and purpose in just being that desired version of myself.

4. Through Meditation – I increase my productivity and creativity

After my morning meditation, I feel a burst of energy; I feel refreshed and ready to show up and give my best. Meditation has helped me be more present at the moment, staying focused on the now. Being laser-focused has allowed me to get more done in less time. Meditation has helped me take inspired actions tapping into my creative side and truly doing the things that bring joy to me. Something I once assumed was impossible.

5. Meditation changed my life – by helping me to be a better person 

We all strive to do and be our best selves. And, sometimes in that process, we may be too hard on ourselves, which isn’t good for our health. Meditation has helped me be a better person by teaching me to love myself and have patience with myself. My default way of life is through love. To completely love and accept me and others. Love always wins!

I have grown significantly as a person with a renowned sense of confidence. Confidence to show up in my natural self and project my abundant energy wherever I am.
