Creating a Stillness Room in your home doesn’t need to be complicated. You don’t need a lot of space either. Choose an area that intuitively feels good and where you will be able to clear your space of clutter, interruptions and noise. Even a small corner in the family room or your bedroom can easily be used with a room divider to carve out a dedicated space for your meditation practice. If you can dedicate an entire room, you may want to consider the wall color, earth tones bring a sense of calmness and serenity as well as more natural materials such as wood, bamboo, stone and seagrass. The idea is to bring the outdoors in, creating a connection with nature.
Create a family Stillness Room with multiple seating arrangements or decorate the nursery with a natural Zen theme to promote tranquility. The Raja chair’s shorter arm length can provide excellent support while you nurse your new baby and the complimentary side table can keep things at arm’s reach. Do you own a business, health clinic or yoga studio? Provide your customers with a unique lounge area to sit while they wait for their appointment or class.
However you choose to create your Stillness Room, be sure that it’s comfortable, peaceful and simple. As they say, a cluttered home is a cluttered mind. Your sacred space should invite you in at the end of a hectic day, allowing you to leave everything behind and simply be still.
