Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have your very own zen-like oasis in your home? Just imagine how good it would be to go there whenever you want to escape the stress of everyday life and find your peace and emotional well-being. Well, now that you’ve visualized this sanctuary, it’s time to transform it into something real.
Creating your meditation room doesn’t require you to follow a specific set of rules, but there are some secrets that can turn your in-home meditative place into a more pleasant and suitable space to rejuvenate, re-energize, recharge, and rebalance. Here are 6 such secrets to a blissful DIY meditation room.
1) Choose a pleasant and comfortable room
Think of a place in your house that puts a smile on your face. That’s where you’ll spend your time and relax your body and mind. Therefore, apart from the great vibes the room is giving you, there are also certain factors you should consider in order to create your feel-good oasis.
Firstly, the room should be in a quiet part of the house. You don’t want your kids interrupting your meditation, do you? Secondly, light is extremely important for your well-being, therefore, if you have a room that faces the sun, or better yet, with a sunset view, stake your claim right now!
2) Declutter your meditation room
Speaking of disruptions, there is nothing more annoying and disrupting than a cluttered space, especially when all you want to do is relax. Clutter can have just the opposite effect and make you feel stressed, anxious and depressed, as suggested in a 2009 study.
This means you should eliminate the extra items in the room and keep it as minimal as possible. Offices are obviously excluded from the equation, given all the filling cabinets, papers and cluttered desk in such a space.
Stick to a few basic items such as a small table, a yoga mat, a throw rug, and a meditation cushion such as this one, which is beyond comfortable.
