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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
