I too would love the time and a special space, but I mediate on my train commute before work. I can successfully block sounds and people, unfortunately not the smells. I will keep trying.

I love this ideabook Belinda. Thank you for sharing these tips. I started to practice yoga a few months ago and really enjoy it. I love the idea of creating my own meditation space at home!

Practice is the key. The more you practise the easier it becomes to meditate. Allow thoughts to come and go. Try not to fight it just focus back on the breath and the mind will eventually quieten. I really progressed meditating twice a day every day.
