In whatever we do, our body seems to want comfort and ease and we try to satisfy our need for comfort by many means. Even when we pray or meditate, the body looks to be comfortable. So it is the same for the way we meditate. The meditation seat must be comfortable enough or else the mind gets distracted and disturbed and our concentration levels seem to decrease. It is always good to have a meditation seat that is spacious enough for us to cross our legs and sit. The square shaped seat with a square meditation cushion that is not too soft so that when you sit you should not sink into it but at the same time it must not be hard enough to hurt you as you need to sit on it for some time. The meditation seat should be placed in a room that is specially kept aside for meditation.
The meditation room should have no access to noise or disturbance which can easily distract you. But at the same time if you have a peaceful and calm surrounding and the ambience is soothing enough the meditation seat can be placed outdoors for you to meditate in the lap of nature.
With meditation, you can even control blood pressure which means that you will not have to buy expensive blood pressure monitors such as Omron BP785 10 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor.
