#14 -Finding Inner Peace at Home: Creating a Meditation Space That Fits Your Lifestyle

Aug 26, 2023

Home should be a calm oasis that brings us happiness, especially when the world is hectic. To me, there’s no better feeling than coming home at the end of a long day to a place that relaxes me. Turning my house into a personal sanctuary and designing a dedicated meditation space has been more important than ever lately.
I remember the words of Headspace co-founder, Andy Puddicomb…”The mind, if we don’t take any time to look after it, it will start to break down and we won’t experience life in the happiest way possible. We often think that happiness is somewhere in the future: if we just get that thing, if we get that job if we go to that place if we can just be with that person. We’re always looking to the future and someplace else in the hope that we’ll find it.You’re going to have to give up looking for happiness outside of yourself. The only thing to do is to get comfortable with the mind as it is. Whether it’s a busy mind or a quiet mind. Thoughts you like, thoughts you don’t like. Pleasant feelings, unpleasant feelings—you just have to get comfortable with it.”
Enter any personal meditation space. Having a designated meditation space gives one a place in your own home that will help you to a practice that will be committed to silence, stillness, and getting comfortable with any of your uncomfortable, anxious thoughts you may have .
On this episode , we will discuss the benefits of having a meditation space at home and the steps necessary to create your personal sanctuary that will reflect your individual journey. By embracing the concept of serenity and incorporating elements such as soothing colors, natural light, comfortable seating, and calming scents, you can cultivate a space that promotes relaxation and inner peace.
