How to create your own meditation space?

You can't meditate without your own meditation space. Well, technically you can, just like you can meditate without Malas, but it just won't be as amazing as it could and should be. At the very least, it's hard to get into a state of recovery and relaxation, which is why you start meditating. So it's best to make it as easy as possible by creating your own meditation space, and here's how you do it.

Why is meditation space important?
Before we start talking about how to create your own meditation space, know why you need one in the first place. For beginners, meditation without meditation space is like riding a bicycle without the handlebars. It can be done, but you will face a huge challenge.

In order to meditate, you must calm your mind and body. It's hard to do when your surroundings are anything but that. So, a meditation space will not only make the whole process easier, it will allow you to recover more deeply.

Step 1: Choose a place
The first step to creating your own is to choose a place of your own. Now, that may seem like a daunting task, especially when all the rooms in your home are currently occupied or used for other purposes. So, you may need some creativity and our 108 bead bracelet will work wonders.

As a rule of thumb, you should choose a place with soft light, preferably natural light, that is "clean", calm, and grounded, such as plants, flowers, white walls, etc.

However, something small, like a closet or even the corner of your bedroom, can easily become your meditation space. You need to bring something into the space to make it your own oasis, but all in all, you don't need much space to live in the moment.

Step 2: Organize and clean up
Once you have your space, it's time to prepare for your meditation practice. As mentioned earlier, you want your surroundings to be completely free of interference. Therefore, eliminating any clutter is absolutely essential. If something isn't keeping you focused, it shouldn't be in your meditation space.

Now, if you're going to use a small part of the room as your own meditation space, you might want to hang some Bohemian tapestries to separate this area from the rest of the room. For example, if your meditation space is in a corner of your bedroom, hang tapestries to separate the ambiance and decor of your bedroom from your newfound zen room.

Step 3: Eliminate negative energy
Now that you soon have a meditation space free of clutter and distractions, it's important to give the area a good scrub. Dust is bad for your deep breathing, and there's no better way to break your meditative state than by sneezing. So, clean the curtains, clean the floor, and get into nooks and crannies to remove our negative energy or debris that might interfere with us.

Consider using sage to remove toxic or negative substances from the air. Himalayan salt lamps are also a great way to keep the air fresh, and their yellow glow adds a soothing atmosphere to a room.

Step 4: Add soil
Adding some humble elements from Earth is always a great way to turn "this empty space" into your own meditation space. Doing so also helps keep the air clean during your workouts. So, head to your local garden center and pick up some plants. English ivy is our personal favorite because its vines grow naturally along the surface and it's a great plant for relieving anxiety symptoms.

In addition to plants, you might want to add some decor to help you connect with earth and nature. Think wooden planks, fresh flowers, Zen gardens, little fountains -- anything to keep your boat afloat. Pun intended). Just remember to keep the decor to a minimum and make sure every piece has a meditative purpose to avoid filling the space with distractions.

Step 5: Play some soothing sounds
If you choose to add a small fountain to your meditation space, you've already completed this step. However, if you decide to change things every now and then, or don't add this feature, you can easily incorporate soothing sounds into your space with just a good old Youtube and a speaker.

This is important because meditative music will help you reach a calm, peaceful state of mind while also eliminating distractions. We personally prefer to use headphones to really separate ourselves from our surroundings.

Step 6: Get comfortable
If your meditation space is not comfortable and comfortable, it can be difficult to meditate in it
