Dating can be nerve-wracking, right? Maybe you're taking things to the next level with someone you've met before or know well, or perhaps you're meeting someone for the first time. Either way, it's likely you want it to go well, so having the jitters or butterflies in your stomach before a date is absolutely normal.
So normal, in fact, that Hinge dating app and Headspace meditation app have partnered up ahead of World Mental Health Day (October 10) to present you with two custom pre-date meditations to help calm you ahead of your date and they're truly game-changing.
Each of these meditations is just under eight-minutes long and, according to the apps, is designed to help you manage your nerves, self-doubt, and any other negativity you may be feeling ahead of a romantic meeting. Seriously, you'll want to bookmark these.
