1. Uncluttered and Clean
One of the first tips is to choose a space that you can unclutter or that does not have much clutter in it. Clutter, believe it or not, is not only distracting but it can also affect your physical health because it is more likely to make you feel fatigued or depressed.
Before adding an item to your space, ask yourself if this item will enhance your space or take away from the ambiance you want to create. Also, take the time to clean the area because a clean environment will help raise your energy whereas a dirty environment will bring your energy levels down. Take the time to learn about sage smoking benefits as well because this is another way to cleanse the room.
2. Comfortable Seating
Most people that meditate sit down so, for this reason, you want to make sure you have a comfortable place to sit. If the area you sit in is uncomfortable you will end up being distracted and will lose focus.
Depending on your meditation style you can opt for a meditation cushion to sit on the floor or opt for a sofa, chair, or even a bed. The key is to feel relaxed and comfortable in your seating choice because that feeling of relaxation in your body will enhance when you relax your mind.
This is something many do not think of but leaving a journal in your meditation space can level up your session. After you are done meditating take a few minutes to make a few notes about anything you noticed during your meditation.
It is important to not stop in the middle of your session to take notes, instead, take your notes at the end of the session. Before you begin your meditation session you can also take a look at previous notes if you feel inspired by them.
