Once you have made a conscious choice to meditate, then the next step is to take action. If you have chosen to meditate at home, then you will need a space where the magic will happen. So, start creating your meditation room.
We all try to sabotage ourselves and talk ourselves out of things by making excuses as to why we should not do something. But, once you commit to making meditation part of your life, there will be no more excuses.
Creating a Meditation Room
Choose a room in the house and declare that space to be your new meditation space. Speak with your family members if you have family living with you. Explain to them that by sacrificing this space once a day, they are helping you to achieve the goal of calmness and peace.
If your family knows that you will benefit and that they will benefit from the transformation in you as well, they should be more than happy to accommodate you. It will also make sure that they don´t distract you while meditating if you´d need to do it when your family or one member is home.
Should the option of having a room all to yourself does not work, don´t let that stop you. Many of us live in small homes and don´t have a whole room, but meditating is still possible. Simply choose a space in a room that is designated for your meditation work. Your own bedroom could work wonders or any other room you feel comfortable in to create a meditation space for yourself.
Things You Will Need
Whether or not your space is an entire room or a small space in the corner of your bedroom, you can create the space you need for perfect meditation. For this, you will need:
- A space that is void of distraction
- A space that defines you
- A place where you can be comfortable
- A comfortable floor mat or cushion or even a comfortable chair
- Amenities that are conducive to relaxation
Creating and decorating your meditation space
Choose a space that has the least distraction possible, preferably where no phone exists and make sure to not take your phone with you either. Decorate your space so that it defines you in a positive way. If your favorite colour is green, then a green yoga mat or comfy green pillow will be great additions. If you love to travel for leisure, put up some pictures of favorite places that you have been or would love to go to.

Make sure you are at your most comfortable in your space. A thick, comfy floor cushion and a fluffy pillow behind your back are ideal ways to start your meditation practice. If your floor mat is not comfortable, you will not be either.
If you wish to meditate to some serene music, buy a CD that wafts this type of music into the background just loud enough to get the impact. Burn some incense or some candles if you like, and you will be all set to go.
Once you have designed the space or room based on your liking, comfort and the theory of relaxation, you will notice how you run there to practice the art of meditation. It will be so inviting, you will not be able to wait.
