Do you ever have one of those days where you’re stuck in traffic for an hour, get bombarded with stressful work emails, and accidentally spill your coffee? We all have, and they’re the worst. Coming home to a space where you can decompress will help you forget the inconveniences throughout the day so you can enjoy your evening. To create your meditation space, clear an area of your home that filters in plenty of natural light. Remove any distractors, such as a television or piles of papers. You want a space that is clean and organized, so you can focus on organizing your mind!
Then, grab a yoga mat, find a soothing playlist and connect to your speakers to take time to unwind, stretch, and do yoga. Instead of dwelling on the past, let your thoughts, feelings, and emotions flow through you and accept those experiences with no judgment or negativity.
