Looking after ourselves is important in the busy world in which we live. Mindfulness is becoming more important, connecting with the moment and taking yourself out of the hussle of everyday life and the never ending to do list. Without taking time out there is a danger of becoming burnt out. Meditation is a simple way to relax and clear your mind. Of course comfort is imperative which is why many choose to use a meditation cushion.
What is Meditation
Firstly forget all of the preconceptions of meditation, it is simply focusing on the moment. Meditation is the act of emptying your mind of the busyness and taking some time to relax.
What is a Meditation Cushion?
When you are meditating, your comfort is crucial. It is impossible to relax if you are fidgeting. A meditation cushion is a large cushion that is placed on the floor. It can be round, square, whatever takes your fancy. It just needs to be large enough that you can sit comfortably. A meditation cushion can be used as a floor cushion as part of your decor.
What do you find relaxing?
The whole point of your meditation cushion is to conjure up thoughts of relaxation. Ask yourself what do you find relaxing? Do you love colour and bold patterns? Would you prefer something subtle and calm or perhaps a floral pattern?
Where will your meditation cushion be?
If you have a space dedicated to your relaxation you can probably afford to be a little bolder with your pattern choices. If your meditation cushion will be used in your living space you will need to ensure that it complements the decor. It’s not to say that the pattern can’t stand out.
