Settle into deep meditation by optimizing your space for relaxation. Set the mood with a soothing scent as you prop yourself up for a seated meditation or lie down beneath a cozy blanket for a more yoga nidra-like experience. Decluttering your altar can put your mind at ease, and having the right tools close by to release tension in the face, hands, back, and feet can get your body primed before you begin.
