We all need to take a break from time to time. Yoga and meditation are great ways to calm your mind and do something good for your body. Here are some tips for setting up a zen space in your home for these activities.
Pick an area in your home that is away from the hustle and bustle of common spaces like the living room and kitchen. You also want to keep it away from any stress-inducing places such as your office or home gym. A spare bedroom is a great option since you can close the door to block out extra noise. If you can’t find anything better, sometimes, sitting on the floor of your closet will work just fine.
Make it Comfortable
Since yoga and meditation practices typically invite you to sit on the floor, a soft area rug will be essential. Even if you choose to use a proper seat or yoga mat, a rug will feel nice and calming underfoot. You can also opt for a casual pouf to sit, lean, or lay on during your zen time.
Decorate with Peace in Mind
The most important factor is that your zen space be a place of peace and calm. Keep this in mind when selecting wall art and home decor items. Stick with calming tones such as blues and greens and stay away from red, yellow, and orange. You may also wish to include an accent cabinet for storing your yoga mat, pillows, books, speaker, and other items.
