I use a collapsible, portable, and adjustable meditation bench called “Kindseat” (available online). It folds up into an easily-stowed package. Because it’s adjustable, I can use it for cross-legged seating or for kneeling.
- How long do you feel you need to meditate for it to be effective?
- What shift do you observed happening in you after meditating for a longer time? After how many days of meditation did you notice the shift?
- Is it okay to do stretches while meditating? I enjoy them because it helps my body loosen and my brain sync with my body. Many people tell me otherwise I just want to know your opinion on it, thank you so much in advance. 🙂
- How can you keep your mind focused during meditation?
- Is there a particular pattern for meditation?
It's not about the tools you use, it's about the meditation. Indian sainths used to do meditation inside caves, under trees, or sitting on top of tiger skin, but most of them were doing meditation by doing daily activities. So I advice to concentrate on meditation activity instead of tools. Have a Fabulous day.
A blanket, a bed, a chair, a yoga matt 🙂 you don’t need a special pillow to meditate on. The posture is important in meditation (check Dalai Lama’s information on meditation for details) but you can manage very well without a pillow.
You can use a meditation 🧘♀️ pillow or you can use a yoga 🧘♀️ mat or a bolster which is kind of like a pillow but instead of the pillow being a circle ⭕️ it is a rectangle but it is a pillow. You can find it anywhere or you can find it on amazon.
I've never used a meditation pillow. I prefer the floor, a chair, bed or yoga mat, but be creative. It's about letting go of your environment and not paying attention to your surroundings. I had a friend who used to sit in a closet, whatever works best for you.
Hi there 👋 Honestly to tell you the truth I usually just sit on my coach with my back straight relaxed against my coach but what would recommend, and I know this sounds silly, but maybe you could try a small circular dog bed(meant for a small breed of dog) my friend says they work great as a replacement! Maybe even a coach cushion I’ll have to try that out? But I’m sure if you really searched the web you could find a small one?I really hoped this helped! ☺️Hope you have/had a good morning, afternoon or day!🙂
I bought a small cat bed for these two kittens just got. They don’t use it and it works great for meditating. It just happens to match the design of my area rug. That’s my meditation pillow. Pick one up at pet value.
All it takes is a tiny bit of space on a bed, couch, or corner to meditate. Although a pillow nook is sometimes preferred, it isn’t necessary to really meditate. The best pillow for a small apartment would be a flat circular pillow, almost like a small dog bed. Anything else might be too bulky, but this would provide support and simplicity in your meditation.
I meditate on a beanbag, it really helps me find a comfortable position quickly so that I don’t have to waste time finding one. You can get a small one and store it away in a cupboard, under your bed, or any space it will fit, so that you can pull it out whenever you need it.
