4 Tips To Make For Calming Quiet Moments

Between work, school, and family commitments, it can be hard to find time for yourself. Even when you do, you might not get the peace and quiet you'd been hoping for. Fortunately, finding a calming room for meditation doesn't have to be a difficult task. Here are a few suggestions to help you create a relaxing space.

Choose an Ideal Location

Even with plenty of spare rooms in your home, it can be hard to find one with the right size and location you're looking for. Ideally, you'll want to pick an area that's well ventilated and clutter-free. A space with plenty of large windows is good too, as you'll get nice views of the trees, flowers, birds, and other natural wonders outside. It's also a smart idea to meditate in an area that's somewhat isolated, such as a backyard deck or patio, to reduce the chances of being interrupted.

Customize the Setting

When you personalize your space, you make it even more fun and inviting. Create a soothing effect by filling your meditation room with lovely scented candles, incense, and essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, and peppermint. You can feel at one with nature by adding plants, flowers, or paintings of lovely scenes. Other elements you can use include bells and chimes, music, crystals, affirmation stones, seashells, and jars of sand.

Lighting and color are also important factors to consider when creating your meditation room. You can use sheer curtains to let light in during the day or decorate your space with just candles or dim lights to keep the lighting low. And while some find walls filled with light or pastel shades peaceful, others seek tranquility with vibrant or darker shades instead. Customize the room to meet your unique needs, and you'll never want to leave!

Make Yourself Comfortable

To help you stay calm and relaxed, you'll need to find the right foundation piece for meditation, such as a soft yoga mat, rug, blanket, or low-height mattress. You can also increase comfort with a backrest or bolster pillow, bench, sofa, or cozy chair. What you choose to rest on as you search for inner peace will depend on your body and personal needs.

Maintain a Pleasant Temperature

If your meditation space is in the corner of a room near a window, use that to your advantage. Open the windows for a bit of fresh air and a cool breeze to keep you comfortable. If you're feeling a bit warm, power on the ceiling fan or use a programmable thermostat to set your ideal temperature and keep your home perfectly cool.
When dealing with colder climates, opt for a portable space heater or bring along a blanket, shawl, or another cover-up to keep you warm. You can also invest in an insulating window film that works to reduce heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter.

Whether you decide to meditate indoors or out, make sure the area you want has everything you need to feel relaxed. From picking the best location and setup to choosing the right furnishings and temperature, follow these simple steps to help you make the most of your meditation room.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
