3 Simple Ways to Create a Meditation Room Right In Your Home

3 Simple Ways to Create a Meditation Room Right In Your Home

It can take a lot of time and practice to learn how to tune out the external and mental noise, and tune into oneself. So it can be really helpful, especially when you’re just getting into (or back into) a meditation practice, to create a meditation room right at home.

When you practice meditation around the same time, in the same space, each day, it helps your body and mind start to fall in line with the routine, and come to expect and rely on those moments of stillness and breath- even if you only start with 5 minutes!

Here’s a quick meditation room checklist to give you the basics of what you need to create a meditation room that’s super cozy, and makes it easy to get out of your head, into a more relaxed state.

Quick Meditation Room Checklist:

Light Your Way

Lighting is so important in creating a mood conducive to meditation. You’ll want to avoid fluorescent and blue-toned lighting that stimulates the mind and can create additional stress.

To create a meditation room, choose a space that has natural lighting, if possible, for all its benefits to help you feel more productive, happier and healthier. And bring in a Himalayan Salt Lamp, with its warm, pink glow to help relax your eyes and mind. It also emits negative ions into the environment, which research has shown can significantly improve mood.

Smell Divine

Simply smelling essential oil has the power to shift your mood and lift your spirit- that’s why it’s called aromatherapy. When used with an oil diffuser, you can easily spread those therapeutic scents around the entire room!

Try lavender to calm your senses, rosemary to clarify your mind, lemon to lift your mood, or any combo of essential oils that calls to you. All you have to do is add water to your essential oil diffuser and let the room fill up with a calm, cool infusion. Then, during your meditation, you can focus on the delicious scent in the air each time you breathe in, and use that as a guide to help pull your attention back to your breath whenever your mind starts to wander.

Bring Nature In

Out in nature is an ideal place to meditate, but not always possible or easily accessible. So, you’ll definitely want to bring in some natural elements to create a meditation room that’s full of nurturing, peaceful vibes. One of the most beautiful and easiest Earth elements to bring in, with no maintenance required, are crystals!

Selenite is especially potent for clearing and purifying the energy of your body and space. Amethyst is a favorite to bring in calm relaxation and open the mind to receive information from your higher self. And Black Tourmaline is very helpful to have handy as a grounding stone, to absorb and release negative energies.

So, there are 3 simple ways you can create a meditation room right in your own home- even if you only have a little corner of a room to spare. It doesn’t matter how much space you have, just the energy that is present in it.

All that’s left is to find a comfy place to sit, breathe, and enjoy being in the peaceful space you’ve created. Happy meditating!
