Adding textured items such as wood, foliage and twine are perfect for incorporating into a mindful space.

Bringing the outside in with foliage is perfect for creating a sense of calm, plus its often renowned for its stress relieving qualities and improving air cleanliness too.

Natural lighting is a must!

A natural breeze is also great so crack open the window whilst your relaxing with your favourite book or getting down to some much-needed meditation.
