Couples Arguments Cause Clogged Arteries
Couples Arguments Cause Clogged Arteries
A recent study of men and women’s communication styles in relationships at the University of Utah revealed that contentious, angry and negative arguments between couples significantly increased the risk of clogged arteries. Women’s hearts were affected negatively by hostile comments from men, while men’s hearts were also adversely affected by domineering, controlling words from women. If you think eating a low fat diet is important in maintaining heart and cardiovascular health and heart health, then you now have another Ah ha to consider for overall health.
Disagreements are a natural part of being in relationships. This includes our relationships with siblings, mates, parents, neighbors and friends. Conflict is inevitable but how you resolve conflict presents many creative choices. The question is this: Are you aware or mindful enough to see the choices in the present moment?
It is far better to honor each other through discussion vs. attacking the other person. This is essential for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. It takes 100 kind acts to heal 1 negative act. Peaceful communication about conflict trumps attacking your partner, friend or family member. Words can so easily wound another human being.
If you gradually train the mind and emotions to express themselves more expansively, calmly and with greater awareness under your wise guidance, then unimaginably great blessings will emerge in your relationships. But, this process of good communication first starts within your own self. You must begin to have a mindful relationship to your own mind, emotions and body, and then great things begin to emerge as a result.
The physical, emotional and mental bodies are very much like children that need the gradual daily discipline or guidance from a parent. You as a soul are function through the personality. You are much like a parent in relation to your personality bodies. They need to be trained to respond with positive expressions rather than react in anger, greed, jealousy, lust, hatred and fear. Meditation trains the mind and emotions to slow down just enough to be redirected towards happier expressions rather than negative reactions.
The Joy of Meditation is a course about helping you blossom as a human being. It is a course about being mindful. Mindfulness Meditation Practice gives rise to choices, creativity, a sense of spaciousness, and most importantly the ability to choose. You cannot choose to respond vs. react to your mate until there it awareness followed by choosing to move to honoring the other person. You will need to wake up from the habits of attacking to choose habits of love, kindness, respect and joy.
