3. Meditation chair

If your perfect day means sitting on the sofa browsing through Instagram, then welcome to the club! For lazy slouchers like ourselves, it can be difficult to sit up straight at all and given how important posture is during meditation, it’s best to get some support to fix this bad habit, just like a padded meditation chair. Portable and functional, you can easily move the chair around and finally get some much-needed back support.

4. Mindful coloring book

When speaking of the very core of meditation, getting rid of straining thoughts naturally comes to mind as you become more present in the now. But if you’re still struggling to meditate after many attempts, fear not because there are other alternatives out there.

Coloring books, for example, are a good alternative to traditional meditation. By focusing on the aesthetic and colors on the canvas, your mind naturally gets into full-on concentration mode. What’s more, you learn to calm your mind and only good things happen after that. So, why not get artsy and relax your mind today!
