Amid everyday chaos, everyone needs some time to restore their inner peace and positivity.


Meditation is the direct and most efficient way to clear the mind. A simple seated meditation practice for ten minutes on a daily basis can make one feel at ease when life gets hectic.


When people meditate, their mindfulness improves. Through working with the breath, one focuses on the present moment. In meditation, you learn presence by observing physical, emotional, and mental states without judgement.


This mindful, non-judgmental self-awareness increases our capacity to overcome adversities and transform the mind, body, and spirit. Ultimately, the root of any problem lies within us—not outside of us. That’s why meditation focuses on eradicating the problem from the inside out.


However, looking within shouldn’t require us to leave our homes. Especially for those with packed schedules, we can create a perfect, private sanctuary right here, right now.


You’ll need some meditation essentials, but otherwise, you can enjoy the benefits of meditation anytime, anywhere. Here are ways to create an atmosphere for your own private, sacred place that will add value and meaning to your meditation.



Choose a space that feels inviting.

The first requirement in meditation room essentials is the right area. Finding an appropriate Zen place in your home is the first step toward achieving good practice. You can choose a room that feels good, with little junk, and with fair to dim lighting. Don’t worry about finding a place for the perfect meditation—that will come with the practice of meditation.


One meditation room idea that can help you feel connected to your space is the scent. Aromatizing the area with an essential oil diffuser helps the room achieve a more grounded feeling. People use good smells to elevate feelings of positivity and centeredness. You can find oils that have specific scents for meditation.


Green plants also help customize your meditation spaces. You’ll bring in some elements of nature. Other touches of nature include polished stones, which can be design elements and affirmation stones.


A room with natural light is best because you don’t need to turn on a bright lamp to focus. However, you might want to look into meditation accessories like salt lamps, which provide a gentle light in meditation spaces. You can also hang sheer curtains to diffuse the natural light.


Other meditation space ideas include:

  • Playing meditation music

  • Using a white noise machine

  • Appreciating the ambient noise around you


    If you have the space in your house, you can move comfortable meditation chairs into the meditation area. Hang a piece of art in your line of vision for maximum enjoyment.


    Sit in a good, comfortable posture.

    Maintaining a proper meditation posture is essential for successful meditation. A stance that’s too relaxed or stiff can cause a mental distraction, so you won’t get the physical benefits of the practice.


    If you use a meditation cushion, the spine stays straight, and the legs don’t get weary from being crossed. You can find a comfy chair or use a floor pillow or comfortable cushion to create a meditation corner. But what matters most is that you’re more likely to enjoy your meditation time if you have a dedicated meditation area.


    Insulate from external energy.

    Staying warm with a hand-knit throw is recommended in meditation. Insulating ourselves from errant energy (or a distracting draft) as we meditate can improve our practice. You can wrap it around your body and even cover your head for added coziness.


    Start with a few deep breaths.


    With eyes closed, we can begin by breathing through the nose and placing our hands on the belly to allow it to expand. Using essential oils while we observe our inhales and exhales offers a deeper, more pleasurable meditation practice. Essential oils can help ease stress and promote wellness—they smell heavenly, too!


    Another way to incorporate oils into your practice is to rub a little oil on your hands and inhale the scent or rub your hands together until they heat up and gently place them on your face for a few seconds. This process helps you have a relaxing meditation experience.
