There's never a wrong time to nurture your meditation practice and bring home a new meditation cushion or pillow. Meditation is something anyone can do at any time, with or without a proper pillow — even still, there are plenty of reasons why those who value the practice of meditation invest in a special pillow, separate from using a regular chair or pillow from the home. A meditation pillow can bring your practice to the next level, energetically and physically.

The meditation cushion is used for one thing and one thing only — supporting your meditative journey. Designating one pillow for your sacred practice time and time again will help settle your spirit down for a meditation session each time you grab your cushion and are reminded of the relaxation the practice brings.

Consider this when choosing your meditation pillow: It should contain colors that resemble the Earth or sky. Think about the verdant forest, the deep blues and turquoise tones in the sea, or the red and pink hues that you'd spot in the desert mountains or sinking with the sunset. With this acknowledgement in your consciousness, you can ground yourself to nature even when you're indoors prior to entering meditation. Plenty of meditation pillows and cushions are made with buckwheat hull or woven wool to give you an earthy element, too.

The most common reason so many yogis (and beyond) are obsessed with having their own meditation pillow is that it's just way more comfortable to use one. Not only will using the proper meditation cushion inspire better, natural posture, but the sacral region of the spine, knees, and ankles can feel pressure after too much time spent on a harder floor. The last thing you want is to be shaken out of a deep meditation because your physical body is feeling tense.

Plus, you can take it outside for a session in the sun or use it as a prop with different yoga positions. If you know you're ready to bring home your very own meditation pillow, take a look at our top picks!
