Throw Netflix and chill out the window, it’s time to start meditating together! Meditation for couples may seem a tad unusual at first, especially if neither of you meditate regularly.
We’re so used to spending quality time with our loved ones partaking in activities such as going out for dinner or catching a movie.
The thing is, whether you’re a regular meditator or a total newb meditating with your partner can offer a whole new range of positive impacts and improve your relationship greatly.
Especially if you’re looking a deeper connection with the one you love. But how? Allow me to tell you. Here’s ‘5 Benefits of Meditation for Couples’.
5. Share a spiritual connection
Once you begin meditating together on a regular basis you will begin to feel this external spiritual pull towards one another. This spiritual connection cannot be found at the movies, or at dinner, but in the experience of meditation.
It creates the sense of ‘oneness’. You will feel closer to your partner (and vice versa) than ever before. One of the wonderful benefits of meditation.
4. Improve Emotional Stability
One of the renowned benefits of meditation is the noticeable improvement of emotional stability within ones self. Meditation helps us access our inner emotions, and the sense of serenity helps soothes the negativity out of our mind, body and soul.
We become enlightened when we meditate. When we meditate with our partner that pushing out of negativity, enlightenment and sense of ‘oneness’ is a beautiful combination. You’ll find the two of you arguing less, being more compassionate towards one another and improved emotional stability. Creating an overall more positive relationship.
3. Increase Labido
Tapping into our senses through the form of meditation allows us not to access our emotions, but our primal energy. As previously mentioned, meditation helps clear the mind allowing our senses to come to the forefront.
You can always take it one step further and begin meditating naked with your chosen one. Whether you’ve been a couple for one or one hundred years meditating naked can be seen as the ultimate connective experience.

2. Create a relaxed & positive environment
You’ll find the time you spend, the space you share together with be encapsulated with the sense of calmness and positivity. Meditating together will also help resolve any disagreements or dissolve tension easier.
As you both are in tune with yourselfs, and with each other. You’re compassion and empathy will flower with regular practise.
1. Health Benefits
Did you know that meditation has been scientifically proven to be good for both your physical and mental health? It sure does! This is because meditation helps reduce stress level, thus reducing the risk of depression and anxiety disorders, helps boost your immune system and gray matter.
So keep each other healthy with meditation for couples! There are an incredible amount of benefits of meditation and positive impacts it can have on your relationship!
But how do we meditate together?
Easy peasy lemon squeezy my friend! Devote a certain amount of time to meditate, let’s say 30 minutes to begin with. Find a tranquil space, where you’ll go uninterrupted. Find the perfect meditation music and let it flow on a medium volume.
Next make sure you are both comfortable. If you have two yoga mats, lay them next to each other on the floor. Lie down next to each other and hold hands.
If you don’t have two yoga mats you can lie down on your bed, or sit up on the couch. The important thing is that you are in a quiet space and you are both comfortable.
When the music begins to play, take in a huge breath, completely filling your lungs. Hold your breathe until the count of three. Then release. Repeat this exercise until your meditation time is up.
If you both feel a bit lost in the process, try guided meditation! It’s perfect for beginners and it great because it ensures that you are both on the same level.
Don’t give up on the first attempt to practice meditation for couples if it doesn’t go too well. Meditation is like anything, you need to practise it before you get good at it. The more you guys practise, the more you’ll reel in the benefits of meditation!
