Last year I committed to making some changes that would help me find a better work/life balance. But despite my best efforts, I can be a stubborn jerk when it comes to embracing things that involve yoga, chanting and incense. I love and respect what those practices can do for other people, but I’ve really struggled to find an activity that works for me (and my sometimes cynical nature). This year, I decided to push through that doubting side of myself and commit to at least one act that helps me unplug, de-stress and center myself. So far, that activity has been meditation. I’m still learning and reading about methods that feel most comfortable for me, but I think it has the potential to be the outlet I need. So today I decided to celebrate the way that activity intersects with my existing passion for design. Starting with this post, Amy and I are each sharing meditation-related ideas today. First, I rounded up 45 inspiring meditation spaces that will get the ball rolling if you’ve been thinking about trying something like this in your home. I hardly have room for a second chair, let alone a full meditation room, but even some of the small nooks in the roundup have helped me imagine how I could re-purpose spaces in my apartment. Whether you’re looking for a place to unwind or just some beautiful, calming rooms to enjoy, I hope you’ll enjoy these spaces as much as I did.

*I added a Health + Wellness category to D*S today, too. All this month, we’ll be sharing healthy ideas, from juice recipes to all-natural home cleaners. A new year deserves a fresh, healthy start for sure.
