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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
