Decorate Your New Area

Now that you’ve found the perfect spot, get to work by decluttering and clearing out the space of anything that creates a busy and chaotic atmosphere. A bean bag, plush cozy rug, or a comfortable chair is a great addition to a meditation area. Choose calm tones that create a sense of relaxation. Decorate with items that bring you peace such as; your favorite plants, small statues, and crystals. This is a great time to express yourself and fill your new space with items that inspire you. Include your favorite art pieces and motivational quotes, just be sure to select soft relaxing pieces to keep your area a serene inviting space.
