Two of the main reasons people blame for their inability to meditate are 1) They don’t have the time and 2) They don’t have a peaceful place to do it. People can get stuck on the idea that in order to meditate, they need to drive to some meditation center in their city, sign up for classes and work their schedules around their classes. Or, even more, they think they need to go on an expensive retreat in the middle of nowhere. But that’s just not true. The very theories behind meditation involve finding serenity wherever you are, and learning how to access it at a moment’s notice (or just about). Of course, if you have kids, live with a significant other or just live in a loud and busy neighborhood, it can be hard to feel like your home is very conducive to meditation. But a few adjustments can change that. Here is how to create a meditation space in your home.
Choose a low-traffic room
Pick a room nobody else in your home uses, or at least uses often. You want to ensure your family doesn’t interrupt you to get something out of that room while you’re meditating. You’re better off using a tiny room that gets no foot traffic than a large, beautiful room where people like to hang out. Even a little walk in closet can be your place of serenity.
