A meditation space is an area of your home to practice mindfulness, it serves as a sanctuary, and is an inspiring reminder that meditation is now part of your daily life. Having a special spot to meditate truly inspired me to make meditation a daily habit, and it was very important during the first weeks.
Creating a space that is purposefully peaceful, cozy and relaxing can make your meditative practice even more enjoyable (and frequent). Nothing fancy, just a designated space to practice stillness and mindfulness.
In my opinion, a meditation space should be welcoming and inviting to you and a reflection of yourself so go ahead and include some of your own personal touches. It can be any element, smell, sound, or object that particularly soothes your body and relaxes your mind. Think of items, such as family pictures, souvenirs from special occasions, chimes, crystals, religious figures, affirmation stones, and artwork.
You do not need “things” to meditate. All you need to meditate is yourself. But if you think that having your little peaceful corner can help you focus and practice meditation, here are some items that you may want to consider including.
A Meditation Cushion and a Rug
Altar Table or a Chest
Candles, Incense and Essential Oils
Plants & Wall Murals
Light and Fresh Air
Last but not least, light and fresh air. Your meditation space should get a lot of sunlight during the day. This will energize and cleanse the space. Besides light, you also want to make sure you have fresh air. Fresh air has many benefits, including boosting your brainpower, improving your overall health, and helping you feel refreshed.
Remember, you don’t have to go out and buy all of those things. Nobody needs all the things. Also, do not overcrowd the space. What is important is a clean and clear environment to keep your mind open. Just choose whichever resonates the most with you and start from there.
