Here’s How I Set Up a Meditation Corner in My Studio Apartment

Fitness

I was waking up too many mornings feeling lethargic and anxious, so after listening to a million wellness podcasts, I decided that it was time to try meditation again. I say again because I tried it a few years ago. I used Headspace, a meditation app, but the mistake I made was that I would do it first thing in the morning, as in before I even brushed my teeth. The problem was that I would stay in my bed, which more often than not meant that I was falling asleep mid-meditation. So, in order to actually feel like I was getting something out of my meditation practice, I knew I needed to change up a few things. I created a little meditation corner in my living room, and it’s how I was able to truly commit to my practice.

What’s in my corner, you ask? A little floor pillow, so I can sit comfortably but not in my bed, is a must. I also change my clothes because not being in pajamas shifts my mindset. I love aromatherapy, and that’s been integral in keeping me calm and focused. Plus, I’ve gotten a couple of books that help keep me encouraged. Meditation is a practice I’m really committing to, and I can already feel more centered and calm when I wake up, because I have my 20 minutes to look forward to. If you’re trying to meditate for the first time, set up a little dedicated space for it, and thank me later.
