5 Unexpected Ways Meditation Improves Relationships

Meditation is not just good for you, it's good for your relationships.

  • Meditation appears to be a self-focused activity, but it actually boosts your ability to have good relationships.
  • Meditation makes you more emotionally intelligent and wise. It also decreases stress and improves a sense of connection.
  • Meditation improves well-being and happiness, which benefits your relationship.

Relationships are key to life, we long for and need positive social connections, yet at the same time relationships can be sources of great pain, stress, and even bewilderment.

1. Meditation Makes You More Emotionally Intelligent

One of the biggest challenges in a relationship is emotions: jealousy, anxiety, anger, and more. Handling our own emotions is challenging enough, let alone those of our partner. Emotional intelligence is key. Step in meditation. Meditation improves emotional intelligence: self-awareness, emotion regulation, anxiety and depression, general well-being, even attention, memory, and creativity. Your ability to connect and empathize improves.

Meditation is associated with greater overall wisdom. And who doesn't want a partner who is not just emotionally intelligent but also wise?

2. Meditation Keeps You Grateful

2. Meditation Keeps You Grateful

Over time, we get used to the things we have and the people we are with. You start to take them for granted. That's when people may start to focus on what's wrong with their partner or forget why they fell in love in the first place, they may even look elsewhere.

However, grateful people are more satisfied in their relationships and feel closer to one another. When you are grateful, you stay focused and appreciative of your partner's good qualities instead of taking them for granted or harping on the little things.

3. Meditation Boosts Happiness

3. Meditation Boosts Happiness

Negative emotions like stress and anxiety can keep us focused on ourselves. It's hard to connect with another person when we are in a self-focused state. Neuroscientists have found that people who meditate regularly have more positive emotions overall, which in turn is linked to slower aging at the cellular level. Meditating, though it can seem like a solo activity, actually makes you a more upbeat partner. As I mentioned in my last post, partners who are more positively energizing have better relationships because their very presence is life-giving and supportive.

4. Meditation Curbs Your Stress

4. Meditation Curbs Your Stress

Isn't it ironic that it's usually the people you love the most who have to bear the brunt of your stress: a short fuse, bad moods, passive aggression. Over time, this kind of pattern can lead to a negative atmosphere in the home and create distance between partners.

If you can take responsibility for curbing your stress, you not only will curb your own stress but also help preserve your relationships with your loved ones.

5. Meditation Helps You Connect

5. Meditation Helps You Connect

It's easy for partners to drift apart, especially if they are busy balancing work and children, have hectic schedules, and have little time to spend together. A chasm can grow almost imperceptibly at first until it becomes painfully obvious. Here again, meditation can help. Connecting to yourself, it turns out, boosts your connection to others in significant ways.

Meditation improves well-being but also strengthens your feelings of connection with others. It can help people feel more connected and empathic in minutes.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
