Many of us spend so much time and energy focusing on the world around us that we neglect to discover our own feelings, thoughts, and desires. Meditation is our time away from daily stress often caused by work, traffic, family issues, and other factors. If you do incorporate meditation into your routine because you have yet to find the ideal location, here are some spots that may help you to find your zen.
A garden, park, or your backyard
Studies suggest that grounding – coming into contact with the earth – offers surprising benefits for both our mental and physical health. The fresh air, the sounds of the birds, and beautiful flowers or greenery are just some of the sanctuaries that Mother Nature offers to meditators.
A patio, balcony, or rooftop
Basking in the morning sun not only creates a sense of tranquility, but it also increases your intake of essential vitamin D.
Hopefully, your bedroom is already a secluded place where you can go for ensured privacy. Before you meditate, consider adding some decorations or accessories that will induce a positive vibe, such as plants, candles, or your collection of crystal healing pendants.
Places of worship are bound to encourage communion and introspection. Even if you are not religious, a sacred place will still have an atmosphere of serenity, making it an ideal environment to practice meditation.
