Why meditation is a natural libido enhancer

Are you aware of the thousands of emotions you experience on a daily basis? Even in the last five minutes, whether you were aware of it or not, your brains processed dozens of emotions. Small fleeing emotions probably, like feeling tired, enjoying your cup of coffee, curiosity about an incoming email, disappointment about the incoming email, frustration with the slow internet connection, surprise about the title of this article, discomfort from sitting at your desk for too long, …

Most people are not fully aware of these subtle shifts in emotion throughout the day or are not ‘fully in the moment’. We are preoccupied with things to be done, work, our plans for the future, worries and our constant thinking. For our romantic relationships, this can be a problem. Because it is exactly ‘in the moment’ that opportunity lies for really connecting with each other and ‘seizing the day’. It is in the moment that we pick up and act on a mood of our partner, share a wonderful moment and show that we are interested and care.

More than 80% of people above 35 years indicate that they experience low libido and would like to have a higher libido. But, only a small percentage of them actually suffer from a physiological condition that causes low libido. That means that most people do not even recognize their peaks in libido, because their mind is too busy with other things. They are not in touch with their body’s own desires. They simply are not present to experience their own sexuality. What a pity for them, but also for their partner! After a while, this ‘not being in the moment’ and ‘not feeling connected to one’s own desires’ can become an issue in the relationship. Because, when people become disconnected from themselves emotionally and sexually, it also becomes more difficult to be romantically present for someone else. And this can create a negative cycle in the relationship, with both partners starting to wonder why their sex life isn’t satisfying anymore.

Meditation can help you to get back in touch with who you are and your most powerful inner emotions, such as creativity, love, happiness, self-acceptance, openness and also libido. If you have a regular meditation practice, no doubt you will have experienced the benefits of meditation for the relationship with yourself, your partner and others. If you are new to meditation, there are some simple guidelines and resources to get you started.

  • Set a fixed time to meditate. Good moments are when you wake up, right after you have brushed your teeth or right before you go to bed.
  • Aim for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening in the longer term. But don’t be too strict for yourself. 1 minute in the morning and 1 minute in the evening are enough to get you started and reap some of the benefits already. So aim high, but be realistic. Some days you will be able to meditate for twenty minutes (twice), other days three minutes will be all you can handle. And that’s ok. A consistent minimal practice is still way better than an irregular intensive practice.
  • Make sure you sit comfortably. Start with sitting on a chair, a cushion or even a folded blanket or lying in bed. And gradually move to sitting in lotus on the ground. Even if it feels like your body is aching all over and you can’t imagine you’ll ever be able to sit comfortably in lotus, you will see that your body will open up and grow into the position with a consistent practice.
  • Use a meditation app for extra support. Here you can find a great review of popular apps: as/indybest/the-10-best-meditation-apps-8947570.html We personally love getsomeheadspace.com
  • Introduce yourself to the background of meditation by reading about meditation. We love:

Don’t overthink this, meditation is a scientifically validated practice to experience more inner calm, focus and more satisfying relationships. We have heard from trusted resources that yogi’s are great lovers with a high libido and we believe this has more to do with their ability to connect than with their ability to put their feet behind their head!
