How to create mindful spaces within your home ? A mindful space is somewhere you can go to escape the busyness of day-to-day life and its stresses. It’s a place where you can really tune in to the present moment and become aware of thoughts and feelings. That process can be difficult during the working day, when we have household tasks to complete, or when taking on the role of parent or carer.

Mindfulness involves clearing the mind and bringing the focus inwards to an internal space. While some people are very good at achieving this wherever they are, many of us will need the right surroundings to get into this calm state.

This article will explore ways to create an ideal mindful space for you in the comfort of your home. 

Choose your room carefully

You could transform a whole room for your mindful space or simply use a dedicated section or corner. Just be sure to fully take stock of your financial situation before commencing any work. 

Whatever you decide, try to choose a space that’s quiet and has as little noise as possible. That could mean using an attic room, the basement, a corner of your bedroom or some landing space. 

With many of us working from home, it’s tempting to use our office spaces for other purposes. However, it’s a good idea to try to keep your mindfulness area separate from your working life. 

Keep distractions to a minimum 

This means leaving your phone and laptop in a separate room and switched off if possible. If you have family members at home, make it clear you don’t want to be disturbed for the next 20 minutes so you can enjoy your mindful space without being asked what time the tea will be ready! 

If you struggle to take time out during the day, choose a time when you are less likely to be disturbed – early in the morning or late in the evening works well for many people. 

Clear the space

Keeping the area clutter-free will help you empty your mind too. Adding a few significant items such as pictures, candles, cushions or plants to get you in a calm headspace can also help. 

Pick a calming colour scheme

Using whites and other neutrals or soft and relaxing colours such as pastel pinks or light blues will provide a calming atmosphere. Bolder and brighter colours can be distracting and overstimulating, so it’s best to avoid these in a mindful space. 


Natural light is best but if your space is on the dark side or you’re using the area in the evenings, choose some soft, warm lighting to create a subtle glow. You can use a floor or table lamp, candles, tea lights or fairy lights to provide a cosy atmosphere.
