One way to make your home feel more like a sanctuary? Practice mindful meditation on in your newly decluttered living room. Studies show that practicing mindfulness and meditation results in reduced anxiety, better sleep, and improved overall well-being. In a world noisier and busier than ever before, it’s imperative that we set dedicated time aside to remain present and find calm amidst the chaos of our surroundings.
The best way to get started is by setting aside 5-10 minutes of uninterrupted quality time. For most of us, this is either in the morning before we kick off the day or that beautiful moment of stillness right before we crawl into bed for sleep. We’ve all been using Calm.com’s app to help us bring more mindfulness into our lives at Team Stowaway. Our team at Stowaway recommends the “7 Days of Calm” program for a straightforward, guided introduction into mindfulness meditation. Gradually, you can start to incorporate mindfulness throughout the day such as during a commute or while waiting in line.
