If you are a mom with a hectic daily routine and do not have enough time to go to the gym, the next best thing in getting yourself fit is the practice of meditation. The challenge might continue, however, if you are like Rebekah Borucki of BexLife.com and live in a house with not enough space for your four young kids playing and a meditation space for yourself. Here are a few tips and guidelines as to which part of your house is most ideal to be made into your own meditation space, and how to make it as comfortable as ever.
If you are a generally busy person, meditation practice may not necessarily be done for a good 20 minutes per day. You can simply sneak in 4 minutes of meditation in between that busy itinerary. Sure, it can be done anytime and anywhere. Angelina Jolie even does it on the floor while being with her kids working their creative works of art. There are times though, especially during weekends where busy people just want to unwind, relax, and simply do their own rituals of releasing stress. This is especially true for moms who need extended periods of peace and quiet.
Scouting for the right spot
It may seem funny to “scout” for the right area of the house to name as your meditation place, especially when your house does not seem to have enough space. In essence, scouting helps you find the most comfortable and convenient area in your house to settle into. Before that, you need to find first a spacious area.
For houses with smaller interiors but larger yards – especially the backyard, inspire yourself to take the extra step and claim it as your personal little haven of comfort and solitude. Once you have established the “where”, now comes the “how.” How can you make it happen? How can you possibly create that little space for meditation?
You do not need to make a miniature house to call your meditation space a haven of peace and solitude. The simpler it is the better. You can simply put up a platform to practice different meditation techniques. You need not spend a fortune on making the platform too.
Your little space can be made without paying for carpenters to do the job. It does not take an architect and an engineer to design your perfect place – you can be both the architect and the engineer as well the carpenter.
Instead of shopping for wood, those old fences that have been in your yard for a while will do the trick. There are several DIY videos and instructions on how to create your yoga or meditation platform that you can follow.
Whether you believe it or not, you can make your space as comfortable as you like. If you need color, you can paint it with any color you like. If you want decorations, you can choose whichever comfortable decors that suit you without the hassle, a hefty price, and without a doubt with great satisfaction.
