The practice of mindfulness can reduce anxiety. There are a few mediation techniques that will help you sleep better and worry less. First, do breathing exercises.

Creating a Meditation Room

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

In order to create a meditation room, you will need a few items such as cushions, yoga mats, and other items that you like. By personalizing your meditation room, you will feel more comfortable to meditate. You can use diffusers instead of candles. Also, you can decorate your room with family or pet pictures or anything that you like. Make sure your room is not cluttered. 
Keep it simple. The space can be big or small. Also, you can add items that remind you of nature.  

In addition, you can add music to your meditation room. It is recommended to use instrumental music or music without lyrics to help you relax. Another important aspect is to choose the color of the walls. You can use soft bright colors to paint the walls or any other soothing paint color for your meditation room. Last, make sure you have good lighting in your room. 

Here is a checklist from which I found online. In addition, you will find more information about meditation and other free items too. 
Have fun decorating and creating your own meditation room. Make sure you are comfortable in the space or room that you choose.
