2. Cultivates self-love and empathy
Believe it or not, but meditation is an act of self-care. Think of it this way: you deliberately carve out a part of the day to exclusively focus on your emotional and physical state, reduce stress, and just breathe. That’s taking initiative to be happy, clear-minded, and comfortable in solitude! Moreover, you begin to prioritize your well-being above all else with each passing day, which cultivates a sense of self-love and empathy for yourself which will naturally translate into how you interact with and understand others.
