How to Create a Zen Space in Your Home
Creating a zen space in your home will open the way for you to de-stress, breathe, and rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. Your home should be a haven for you where you can feel safe, secure, and nurtured.
Everything in your home is full of energy. When there is an unusual amount of clutter or paper, the energy flow can become stuck. It is difficult to feel calm and relaxed in the midst of chaos. Begin creating your zen space by clearing out the clutter, even if it is in just one part of one room.
Once the clutter is cleared out, you will automatically be breathing better, and may feel lighter. Perhaps that is all you needed to create your zen space, however, a few touches here and there can bring your stress levels down even more. Open the windows and air out the space. Even windows that you never open, should be opened. Already the chi is moving more freely.
Adding a fountain to any room is a huge step in the right direction for creating a zen space in your home. If you are unable to find a tabletop fountain, placing one just outside your door or window will add the relaxing sounds of water flow.
If you are tired of your carpeting, or have tile or wood floors, feel free to add some throw rugs to create a warm and cozy look. Rag, woven, or bamboo rugs are terrific accents for your zen space.
Candles add an ambiance second to none when creating a zen space. Plants bring in a touch of nature needed to feed your soul. Perhaps a Buddha or floor pillows will inspire you to create a meditation corner. Roll up some throw blankets or your yoga mat in baskets. Open the curtains, and hang a piece of stained glass in your window. Letting the light in will lift your mood immensely.
Don't forget the bathrooms! By adding candles or plants around your tub, you have the perfect space to feel zen. Relax and enjoy it!
