Everything You Need To Create The Perfect Meditation Space
So lately I’ve really been into meditation. When I was in the midst of my Bachelor’s degree, I learned a lot about the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of meditation.
I now practice mediation every day and I’ll never go back to the days without it! My preferred times for meditation is right in the morning, after my at home yoga session, and before I go to bed.
Unfortunately I don’t have the space for a legitimate meditation space right now, but I make things work. Right now, my meditation space is in the center of my bedroom after I move the dog bed and toys! You gotta work with what you got you know?
My plan for my new house is having a little corner in the house on hardwood floor with my blanket, cushion and beautiful accessories!

Today I’m going to share with you how to make the perfect meditation environment so you can really get the most out it. If you’re serious about meditation, all these tips and tricks will really be worth your while.
Take what you need, tweak what you need and get yourself some essentials for your meditation space! I know you’ll be really excited about these, because I am!!!
Create a peaceful environment
First you’ll need to find a small space in your home (or outside) that is free of clutter, noise and distraction.
For me, this means move the dog beds, clear the dog toys and put the dogs outside my room. They really love to climb all over me when I’m the floor. I love it and it makes me laugh but it’s distracting of course.
Engage your senses
Sight, Smell, Touch, Sound, Taste. Check ’em off the list!
Start with some ambient lighting such as some candles or low light strings of lights. Then add some zen art, statues, healing stones and/or plants!
Fire up some incense, but if you hate incense (or someone else in the house does), light up some candles or an essential oil diffuser.
My personal favorite would of course be the essential oil diffuser.

Traditionally, mala beads are used for meditation. Beads are used to aid in counting or chanting during meditation, and they really make a difference.
Sound is really crucial unless you live in an area with none. Haha! You can go in any direction with this one. You can start up a zen playlist on your phone or computer, you can get yourself a little indoor waterfall piece, or a singing bowl.
What the heck is that you say?
“Singing bowls have been used for centuries to enhance meditation practices. The relaxing harmonics are created by tapping the side of the bowl and then rubbing an instrument, or striker, along the bowl’s rim to produce humming vibrations which quickly fill the room.” -BuddhaGroove.com
Oh baby, brew yourself some tea. Do you like green, oolong, black, rooibos, herbal, chai? Anything will do!
Pick your favorite, brew it, inhale the aroma and sip away!
Now if you’re ready to up your meditation game, or need an excuse to start, collect some or all of the items listed below! I’ve made a list of meditation essentials to really give you the best experience.
Once you’ve set up your space, bought your essentials, you’ll never want to go a day without meditating!
