Meditation Routines for your Family

As stated earlier, meditation is not necessarily about sitting still with the eyes closed for long periods, there are other means of meditation and these other means can be adopted by you with your family. In the subsequent parts, we highlight the steps you can take to achieve an effective mediation routine with your family.

Designate a section of the house for meditation: you will need yoga mats for this and they are easy to come by. You can get yoga mats online in Dubai without the hassle of physically going to the market. Whatever section you choose, ensure it is well decorated to attract the children and it is quiet enough to improve focus during meditation.

Meditate during mealtimes: the family could have a quiet moment before and after meals/snacks. Also, slowly savoring meals is a way of meditating.

Meditate while walking: Take walks with your family where everyone is conscious of each step they take – the walks may be in silence or everyone may say a soothing catchword. Let these walks be timed.

Meditate through expression: the family may meditate through expressing positive feelings to each other according to a schedule. During these periods, each member could take turns to read a letter to the family while everyone else listens. This may be done sitting in chairs or they could be done on yoga mats – as mentioned earlier, you can get yoga mats online in Dubai.


The main goal of meditation is to find tranquility and you can achieve this with your family through any activity that spreads positive energy and through moments when everyone can reflect.
