***This is an updated post – I finally made my own nest (see further below)!
Some girlfriends and I flew to Greensboro, NC for a girl’s weekend (and it was my birthday). Of course, no girl’s weekend is complete without a trip to the spa! The Chakras Spa had a very clever “Nest” at the end of a hall for guests to relax and/or meditate in while between treatments.
They simply added a bed in front of the window, and draped fabulous silk fabric to create a private, cozy area. Lots of pillows and meditation books completed the nook. These pictures really don’t do it justice, but you get the basic idea.
Do you have a place in your home that could serve as a “Nest?” Even if you don’t have enough room for a bed, you could create a cozy corner with a favorite chair. With the crazy holiday schedules on the horizon, this is a great time to find your own happy place to unwind.
February 2009 Update! I finally got around to creating a Meditation Nest in my own home! Ok, so it’s a kid-friendly version, but it works for me!
Here’s what it looked like before:
Gotta love a mom-cave, right?
