Benefits of Meditation

Meditation not only benefits the mind but also the body as well.

Studies on meditation have showed that it is helpful for reducing stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, seizures and irritable bowel syndrome. [1]

Meditation can also improve cognition, memory, concentration and reduce the risk of dementia. [2]

Many people report feeling more positive, calm and happy after meditating.

I feel much more relaxed and better able to cope with stress when I meditate regularly, even if it’s only for 10 to 15 minutes each time.

Creating a Meditation Space at Home

The ideal place to create your meditation space is a quiet room or corner of the house where you can relax and be alone.

Turn off your mobile phone, computer and TV, so there are no distractions.

Soft, calming music can help you to relax and go deeper into your meditation and music can reduce distractions from outside noise like traffic or noisy neighbors.

You can also create a meditation space in your garden or backyard. If you have trees or a water fountain nearby that’s a bonus.

Decorating Your Meditation Space

Choose a few items that bring you calmness and serenity. Some basics include a small table, a rug, a blanket in case you get cold and maybe a plant or some flowers.

Here are a few other items you can use in your meditation space at home:

Meditation cushion

A meditation cushion can help to support your spine and pelvis while you’re sitting.

Mala Beads

A mala is a string of beads that are used during meditation to help you count mantras. Malas can be made from crystals, rudraksha seeds or sandalwood.

Singing Bowls

A singing bowl can help to lead you into a meditative state. Concentrating on the sound as it becomes quieter and quieter is a great way to begin your meditation.

Essential oils

Calming essential oils can help with relaxation. Some of the best essential oils for meditation include:

Lavender – one of the most well-known calming essential oils.

Chamomile – helps to promote inner peace and decreases overthinking, anxiety and worry.

Frankincense – helps to deepen meditation and quiet the mind.


A candle can be used as a focal point. It can be calming just to watch the flame flicker.

Candles scented with essential oils can help to promote a calming atmosphere in your meditation space.


You can place crystals around your meditation space or hold them in your hand to enhance your meditation. Some of the best crystals for meditation include:

Clear Quartz – helps with clarity, focus and amplifies the energy of other crystals. Clear Quartz can also be programmed with your meditative intention.

Black Tourmaline – shields and protects you from negative energy.

Amethyst – helps to relieve stress, anxiety and deepens your meditation.

Selenite – releases negativity and helps to clear your mind and relax your body.
