5 Steps To Create A Simple And Cost-Effective
Home Meditation Space
Selection Of A Space
It is important
to select the best place which is calm, peaceful, and away from a traffic zone.
The meditation place would be a soft corner in your bedroom or the living room
and even if a complete room which is a kind of activity room or home office, these
are the places where you can create your own meditation space. Just you need to
take care of one thing that, avoid cooking, sleeping, working, or watching
anything on the screen on that meditation space. Again, it is not a thumb rule
because if you have limited space to use then it is quite working as a general
activity space. In case there is no separate place to meditate, then create it
with some comfortable floor cushions or even a comfortable chair when you will
go to meditate. Because at the end size of the place doesn’t matter, all matter
is the emotions, ambiance, and surroundings of that place.
Make It Comfortable
When you will be done by selecting a space for
meditation now makes it comfortable. For seating, you can use floor cushions
with a soft rug or even a serene and warm chair, anywhere you can sit straight,
open up your heart, and feel relaxed. Avoid too many prints and lots of colors
for fabric, make it simple, minimal, and yet cozy, where you can sit comfortably
and concentrate on your mind.
Decoration In A Peaceful Way
Make the meditation area subtle and simple
with selective décor accessories and artifacts, because this decoration will
give the breath to space. For decoration, you can keep the special meaning or
calm painting on a wall, or any other wall hanging and it should be subtle. You
can keep planters as well; it will give you a refreshing feel and fresh air for
that you can keep any indoor plants. A bohemian style decor is a good option for decoration with having
minimal approach because bohemian style is all about pops of colors, patterns,
and decoration which may not truly preferable to meditation spaces.
Subtle Ambient Lighting
For meditation calm ambiance is an important
element because then only you can focus on your meditation more deeply.
Lighting should be warm and calm, no bright light or colorful light is
preferable, it may lead to distraction and you will not concentrate on the
practice. There are various types of light such
as ambient lighting, pendant lighting, or even a floor lamp and a more
decorative purpose lantern will lighten up your cozy meditation space.
To set the mood of meditation you have to
create that ambiance which will help you to settle up the mind easily, get away
from stress quickly, and feel happy and refreshed while meditating. Diffusing
the air with essential oils is a great idea or having some soy wax, beeswax,
and flower scent candles to create a refreshing ambiance. Also, soft music or
even natural sounds get a fresh and calm feel.
These are five steps to create a meditation
space in your home. You can design the space according to your style or what
things can help you to do meditation such as decoration and an ambiance. After
all, an essential part is that you have to do meditation daily because it will
