Meditators can Alter Others Negative Emotions

A new study regarding Meditation has been published in the European Journal of Social Psychology. According to the research, the people who meditate daily can reduce negative emotion not only in themselves, but can also decrease negative emotion up to a limit into their life partners as well. The individual benefits of Meditation may impact others. But the question is how to detect whether the non-meditating partners are taking benefits or not.

Christopher May, Assistant professor in University College Groningen, said, “Most researches on Meditation has focused on its benefits for the individuals doing the practice. This research, particularly over the last 20 years, has shown that Meditation has numerous benefits for the practitioner, such as increasing mindfulness and positive emotions, and decreasing negative emotions.”

To carry out the research, May and his colleagues selected 53 university students who did not meditate ever in life. 18 of them did not interact with their room partners or study partners. Hence they were excluded. Now, May was left with only 35 students, and he asked them to do Meditation daily. Various blogs like claytonmicallef.com, that talked and preached about meditation, came into assistance during that time.

The remaining students were surveyed daily for eight weeks, and May found positive emotion and mindfulness not only into the participants but their room partners and study partners also showed fewer negative emotion in eight weeks. But the reduction in negative sentiment in the meditators was in higher amount as compared to their partners.

In the end, May said that a new study would take place over a more significant number of people to increase our confidence in the research. We want to know why non-meditating partners have only a few changes in negative emotion as compared to the meditating participants.
