Rooms designed for mediation are becoming increasingly popular – with good reason. Mediation has been definitely been a go-to stress reliever in numerous articles. When it comes to meditation, there is no right or wrong place to do it as long as it is a calming space for you. You also don’t need an entire room for this. You can select a corner space in your home to have for your daily meditation.
If you are thinking about creating a space just for this, here are some things you may want to include:
A PLACE TO SIT
When starting meditation, many people have a particular place they sit to get themselves in a state of calm. Think about incorporating simple cushions, a small stool, and textured area rug such as this chic and stylish black and cream hand woven rug that would fit great in any area.
2. ADD AROMATHERAPY
Aromatherapy based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds, with claims for improving psychological or physical well-being. If you’re anything like me, one smell of my favorite scent will easily put me at a place of calm. Adding your favorite candle can help you get in the mental space needed to start your meditation. It always doubles as adding just enough light to any space.
3. ADD NATURE
Having a green, plant-filled space adds multiple benefits to your meditation practice. Some people add layers and dimension by showing off plants on stools and placing some on the floor to create a peace scene. Consider adding touches of nature to your meditation room— it will instantly become infused with harmony and balance. If you want to keep it simple, think about adding small plants around your space.
4. PICK A DIFFUSER
You can get an essential oil diffuser to release their magic by adding any essential oil of your choice for an added boost of relaxation. There are different diffusers to choose from such as including nebulizing, ultrasonic, heat, and evaporative diffusers. Each diffuser has its own unique method for getting essential oils into the air so you can utilize their therapeutic benefits. Not into the diffusers? Try using a candle with a heating bowl or simply add a few drops to a bowl of steaming hot water.
5. ESSENTIAL OILS
Breathing deep before, during, or after your meditation with essential oils can help calm, relax, focus and ground you. Essential oils have a wealth of proven health benefits in addition to being affordable, versatile, and convenient way to improve your health and quality of life. You can use them to relieve pain and cramping, improve respiratory health, and heal skin conditions. What better way to get yourself prepared for your mediation?
When creating your space, always remember sometimes less is more. Choose a quiet spot to avoid noisy distractions and bring in elements of nature. Take what you have learned here and start looking around your home. You just may be surprised at what you already have around your house to bring you the relaxing feeling you are looking for.
