How You Can Make a Meditation Center in Your Home

Having a proper Meditation center can offer a peaceful environment to help dispel , ill will, and self doubt. Meditation can also help you to manage anger more effectively, and help you develop your self-esteem and self-confidence, something that quickly becomes eroded under .

You will need to choose a place that is serene and quiet. Perhaps you have a little-
used room in your home. Some have used a garage or shed, but inside your home
is best. Perhaps your dining room is not used except for meals. Maybe the living
room is quiet after breakfast when everyone goes off to work or school.

Even a closet is ok if you can sit comfortably and don’t burn any candles. Don’t
over it, almost any quiet nook will do.

Preparing your meditation center:

Turn off your and any electronics that with interrupt your
meditation.

Add some pleasant natural touches in your area, perhaps a plant or some
flowers, even a single leaf will do. A scented aromatherapy candle or some
meditation music in the will change the mood of your space
and make it more conducive to meditation.

Dim the lights to reduce the distractions. If you are using
candles, you can turn off the lights all together.

Most people sit on the floor on a mat with their legs crossed Indian style,
but not everyone can get into that position, especially older folks. It is
perfectly fine to sit in a straight backed chair or on a special cushion that is
called a zafu. It helps you sit lotus style without the pain.

There are also wooden meditation benches that keep the pressure off your legs when you
kneel. You can also sit outside against a tree trunk.

Adding wind chimes, a singing bowl, or small cymbal, will help when you
want to focus on sounds. Of course, wind chimes will be a distraction if they
are thrown around by a forceful wind.

Keep your meditation area free of clutter to keep it relaxing and stress free.

Make sure you have fresh air circulation. Since you are concentrating on
your breathing, you may as well make that clean and fresh air breathing.

If you are using meditation music, make sure the length of the music more
than overlaps the length of time you will meditate for. Having to get up to
change the music will be a big interruption in your session.

Most people meditate during the morning if they are home, or right when they
get home, to de-stress, or right before bed, to relax. Choose a time that is right
for your situation and needs.

You just want to be consistent in whatever time you choose. That’ll make it easier to get into a contemplative mood each time you
meditate.  Meditation music is meant to be relaxing, and of course meditation does help you to relax too, but it goes beyond that and helps us to be more alert and focused, especially in your meditation center.
