Creating Your Personal Zen at Home

What is zen? Zen is a total state of focus that incorporates a totalness of the body and mind. It is the state of absolute calmness and peace.

Whether you're living in the suburbs or the rural area, there is always one place we go to when we want to relax or take a break from the world. It is a place where we can meditate and think in peace. Or where we can read our book in silence..

Meditation has long been used in ancient times, they would usually do this in their backyard, becoming one with nature. But a place of meditation doesn't necessarily have to be outdoors, you can also create it indoors.

It is very easy to choose a spot at home, you can find a window that overlooks a garden or the forest, or if you're in the city find a corner that is most isolated from the sounds of society.

And being an area of zen, it requires minimal decorations or none at all, as long as you're comfortable sitting where you are, you can opt for a small table and chair, a futon, or add a small floor fountain or a tabletop fountain.

With a simple set-up like that at your own home, you'll be surprised at how much it can add value to your life, and how you'll be able to appreaciate the little peace and comfort it can provide you with in your hectic day to day activities.
