My New Year’s resolutions for the past six years have been to commit to meditation as a form of mindful stress reduction. I tried all the apps and even signed up for a few guided classes, and the habit didn’t stick, but maybe it would if I had a dedicated room to do it. stick to meditation or if you are already a regular, the right environment will undoubtedly improve the practice. So I’ve found 20 Designer Meditation Rooms with plenty of ideas to help you decorate a corner, basement, spare room or garden shed into a wellness sanctuary.
As you will soon see, it is the whole intention behind the meditation rooms that makes them so special: to cultivate a physical place, large or small, where you can relax, reconnect with yourself and allow your spirit to be your sanctuary instead of satan’s (just me?) playground. According to this scientific study on meditation, the health benefits are quite staggering, as it alters brain activity and patterns. It is linked to improving anxiety and depression, reducing insomnia, lowering blood pressure (when accompanied by other treatment methods), and managing certain types of pain, each of which is reason enough to attempt meditation. And if that doesn’t motivate you (by you, I mean me), then these meditation room design ideas will. Better head spaces and healthier habits ahead!

Play with light and shape
