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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
