A Still Space
If you plan to make meditation a regular practice, you should set aside a place within your home in which to do it. Prepare a place where you will be comfortable and free of distraction. It can be an entire room, or simply a small corner. Clear out any clutter or decorate it with anything you find relaxing or inspiring, like fresh flowers, incense, candles and images. How about playing some soft music? Place an alarm clock nearby if you want to keep track of the time you spend in meditation.
Sitting is the best position for meditation, so choose a chair or a comfy cushion on the floor. The goal is to be comfortable, yet focused, straigtening out your spine as much as possible. If you choose to sit on the floor, make sure you have a pillow that raises your buttocks higher than your knees or sit against the back of a wall to give your spine support.
Once your space is set up, you’ll have a fully welcoming place in which to experience meditation. Make it one that you enjoy coming to and you'll find yourself looking forward to meditating.
