Having a room that is dedicated to tranquillity, peace, and emotional well-being is a dream for most people. Creating a meditation room would allow you to have an escape from stress while being able to connect with a higher power. Everyone should have a space where they can do daily meditations and feel the benefits of this exercise. This space should allow you to recharge mentally and physically while also keeping you balanced.
While the benefits of meditation are still being discovered, we do know that it provides you with a transformative and healing experience like none other. When you create a meditation room, you don’t have to follow specific rules, but there are a few things you should consider. Make sure to take inspiration from the ideas below when creating your meditation room while also following your heart and mind to create a zen-like space where you will feel complete bliss.
Spaces that Feel Good
Choose a room in your house that feels good to you, that makes you smile, and that is quiet. Make sure there is plenty of natural light which can enhance your mood as soon as you walk in the door. A room that faces the sun for a good chunk of the day is perfect for meditation or one that has a view of the sunset is a great way to start meditation. If you are unsuccessful in finding this room indoors, consider an outdoor space like your garden, deck, or patio. Just remember to choose a space that lets you relax your body and your mind without any worry of distraction.

Uncluttered & Clean
Once you have chosen a room, the first thing you want to do is clean it and take out all the clutter. Clutter can be distracting, so make sure the room you choose is spotless and free of extra items. If necessary, use a storage facility like Ashgrove Storage to store these items. Specifically, do not make your office your meditation room. Sitting in the midst of filing cabinets, papers, and bills will not give you a clean mind. The room you choose should be cleared out except for just a few pieces that could include a pillow, rug, and yoga mat.

Natural elements will also help your room become healing and relaxing. Since meditation is all about connecting with nature, it’s a no brainer to bring a few natural elements into the room. Meditating outside would put you in the perfect setting, but many people live in busy city environments that are not conducive to relaxing. Consider bringing in natural touches to your room to infuse it with balance and harmony including plants, seashells, and sand. A water fountain is also a great addition providing soothing sounds as a backdrop.
Music isn’t necessary for your meditation room but if you live in a busy area, it can help drown out the sounds of traffic and people outside. It can also drown out noises from in your own house so you can gain a peaceful and tranquil state as you meditate. You should choose music that does not have lyrics but it doesn’t have to be classical music. Look for sounds that you find soothing like the sound of the waves, wind, or birds. Whatever you like. Find tracks that will be long enough to play throughout your meditation session so you aren’t interrupted by having to hit repeat.
Aromatherapy is another item to include in your meditation room plans. Using essential oils like peppermint, chamomile, and lavender can be soothing to your body, mind, and soul. You can also burn incense and candles to give you the benefits of aromatherapy as you meditate. Not only does it help you relax, but aromatherapy is believed to help stimulate your brain function, boost your immune system, eliminate or reduce stress, and get rid of muscle pain. It definitely makes sense to includes some aromatherapy in your meditation room plans.
Also, remember to include some personal touches as you create your meditation room. Use objects, smells, and sounds that you find especially soothing to your body as well as relaxing to your mind. Items that create a peaceful and serene environment like artwork, beads, crystals, chimes, and bells are also great additions. Make sure you don’t clutter up your space with these items and only choose a few. Do not bring back those items that you stored with Ashgrove Storage to clutter up the room again. Ideally, your goal is to create a clutter-free space that is clean and relaxing.
There are several considerations to keep in mind when you are creating a meditation space. Decluttering is your first priority and Ashgrove Storage can help you make your room distraction free. Just make sure that the room is as relaxing as possible without any distractions that will keep you from receiving the healing powers of meditation.
